Veg out with your Dog! April 24 2015, 0 Comments

Your Dogs need veggies just like us, For a dog, part of the pleasure of eating a biscuit or some kibble is the satisfying crunch. You can give Max that same crunch with a number of raw veggies.

If your dog will eat leafy greens raw, try various types of lettuce, spinach, kale, and even cabbage (for kale and cabbage, see caution below about gas-inducing veggies). Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K, and C, as well as fiber and protein. This powerhouse veggie can be bitter when raw, so lightly steam before serving. Limit your servings of this as it is also high in oxalic acid which can interfere with calcium absorption. On the up side, one leaf of Swiss chard contains only 38 C, so it's a great low-calorie treat.

Zucchini is a good source of calcium, potassium, beta-carotene, and folate. Zucchini is best fed raw or frozen but can also be served cooked.
