Book 14 revolves around the bizarre idea of an Andalite toilet. Why would they need toilets? Andalites absorb nutrients from grass, which means they only get what they need, meaning no... erm... waste would come out.

Not necessarily, at the very least they would still need to pee seeing as they still need to drink. Most likely their bodies still need to remove wastes, they may just have to do it less often.

<Ah, the Andalite toilet. Andalites eat grass. Cows also eat grass. This means that Andalites should poop about as much as a cow.>
<Because the term 'cow pie' is a real thing I can deduce that cows poop quite a bit, or at least that when you get enough of them in a large enough area the poop can pile up.>
<Andalites are an intelegent species and get emberised if other people see their poop and they know that poop can transmit diseases, this is why the Andalites need toilets. They are in space ships and the ships need to do something with this poop, so we ended up with this book.>
<...and the post where I used the word 'poop' the most.>

I think that Andalites should poop less than cows. They absorb just the nutrients with their hooves, right? If that's true, they don't have as much waste that needs to be removed. Of course, the standoff at the end of book 17 implies that they absorb everything through their hooves.
Dear Ax,
I'm very sorry for making uh... that joke.
It's partly your fault, though. You should remember never to demorph in a public restroom, though. You're probably going to eat whatever's on the floor because Katherine Applegate is strange.
Because alien-fighting blue centaurs with cleavers on their butts aren't weird at all.
Sorry,
Marco

<...and just how do you think Andalites 'absorb the nutrients'? Its called eating.>
<The nutrients in any food are mixed up with the other parts of the food, you can't just pull all the oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, magnesium, iron, fluorine, zinc, and silicon from the grass without getting all the other stuff.>
<Keep in mind that these chemicals make up over 98% of a HUMAN body and Andalite bodies are different and therefore would have them in different percentages.>
<Going in a different direction an Andalite eating Earth grass would not be use to this alien vegetation, and their body would have to deal with this new food a little differently, the percentage of waist produced would most likely be greater.>

To expand on TM's post, I remember one book (I believe it's 8? Feel free to check me on that) where Ax mentions that he accidentally ate a snail.
Animorphs: The Abridged Series. Post there so I'm not lonely.

So just shut your face and take a seat, 'cause after all, we're just talking meat. And music?

Well, it's just entertainment, folks.

Ah. Thanks! So when Ax says that he absorbs the nutrients, he's just speaking in a fancy manner, as I am demonstrating so perfectly here.
