Did You Know that Carrots Make Great Chew Toys?
Jessie, honorary dog nutritionist: In an effort to maintain my svelte figure and to make sure I have a healthy diet, I love to indulge (in moderation, of course!) in fresh veggies. If you want to give your dog a little treat from your kitchen, consider things such as carrots (great substitute for a chew toy, by the way!), or most any veggie you enjoy. The ones to avoid, however, are onions, garlic, the green parts of tomato plants, potato peelings, raisins, grapes, rhubarb leaves, broccoli and any pips or stones from household fruits. These can all be toxic to your pet. However, just as those green beans, peas, carrots, and other healthy delights are good for you, they are equally nutritious for your dog…and provide a nice change of pace for him from the ordinary dog food he enjoys!
So, what are you waiting for? Once your dog reads this blog, he’s going to expect something from you! Check the fridge! Now!
