Dogs and Veggies

Hi this is Lisbeth again, this time I would like to talk about dogs and vegetable, do they need vegetables? Are vegetables okay for them? What are the best vegetables for them? Now: Have you ever asked any of these questions? Yes?? Okay! let’s go a little deeper in this topic then.

Unlike to cats, dogs can and do eat vegetable matter with some exceptions, they are not necessarily 100% carnivorous, in the past wild dogs would get their vegetable matter from the semi digested vegetables on their prey’s stomach, also there is no evidence showing that vegetables can harm in any way your dog, they don’t need to find these nutrients in vegetables since they should be included in their balanced diet (kibbles) but is a healthy treat that they seem to enjoy, Vets often recommend mixing vegetables into the kibble of an overweight dog as filler. It’ll make their meal feel more satisfying with few calories.

Let’s answer the questions we did before:



Yes, dogs benefit from all fiber, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and Phyto-nutrients not found in meat, and veggies are rich in all those, just like us they need nutrients to have a good and balance diet, on the other hand if you are feeding it with kibble recommended by your vet then most probably the diet is already balance and contains all nutrients needed.





CUCUMBERS (lots of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which offer your dog anti-inflammatory benefits.)

ONIONS (in unappropriated quantities can destroy your dog’s red blood cells)

CARROTS (Carrots contain vitamin A from beta-carotene, biotin, vitamin K, potassium and vitamin B6)

GARLIC (in unappropriated quantities can destroy your dog’s red blood cells)

GREEN BEANS (Green beans are also low-calorie and rich in fiber, which can help dogs feel full.)

UNRIPED TOMATOES (They contain something called ‘tomatine’ which can cause damage to the nervous system, kidneys, and digestive tract.)

SPINACH (contains high amounts of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron and calcium. )

WILD MUSHROOMS (wild mushrooms can be very poisonous and one of those things that dogs forage around for whilst out walking. Symptoms vary according to the mushroom but include the diarrhea, vomiting and restlessness.)
