Vegetables

I am interested in adding in fresh vegetables to my dogs food. Which vegetables do your dogs like and how do you fix them?

Prior to our special diets, my guys loved raw carrots, and I know that some here give their guys potatoes & sweet potatoes.

I cook with lots of fresh herbs and I can say that mine will not touch basil or parsley - I guess they smell too strong for them. But I know carrots is a favorite, as well as stringbeans - Marj temps her babies with Corn!!!

Sweet Potato-microwaved for a few minutes, cubed, and frozen. I feed the cubes straight out of the freezer as a treat or a few bites with her kibble.

Green Beans-steamed. I will freeze these too and give them to her as a treat or with her regular meal. Just a few small pieces in a day.

Dusty also likes other vegetables-carrots, peas, etc, but I don't feed them on a regular basis.

I've had good luck with carrots and green beans. I use fresh carrots and cook them in the crock pot with whatever dogfood I am making. This last dish was diced sirloin, red potatoes, carrots, and a little celery. I seasoned it with low sodium beef broth a dash of garlic powder and cumin. Gucci loves cumin!

I've fed her green beans before, steamed fresh ones.

She will also eat yellow squash, and yellow tomatos (they are low in acid, whereas the red ones aren't).

I am going to start introducing more veggies, so I'll let you know how it goes!

I put the fruit to the side of her meal, she usually eats around the fruit anyways, so I save her the trouble!

I should add, that she does NOT like sweet potatoes! I've tried them several times, because they are such a great source of nutrients and she wants NOTHING to do with them! But I would surely try them! They are a great choice.

I never thought about the crock pot. That would be an easy way to make some meals! I always thought that home cooking would take so long but not if some of the items can be made in the crock pot. I will definitely have to try that.
