A recent post about slimming down a pudgy pooch raised some questions about which vegetables are safe to include in your dog’s diet, or to give as snacks. After some research on several “authority” sites such as Pets.WebMD.com, DogChannel.com, and PetMD.com, here’s a list for your convenience:
Don’t feed too much of those 3 until you see how much, if any, of a gas problem it can cause!!
Carrots (cooked or raw)
Peas (Snow, Sugar Snap, English)
Pumpkin (although technically a fruit)
Your dog may go crazy about some, and turn its nose up at others.
Even though these are all considered safe, test, test, test, until you’re sure there’s no adverse effect on your furball.
We’ll have another article soon listing safe fruits.
