Eat Those Vegetables!

Get the skinny on your dog's diet.

My dogs love broccoli, carrots and apples. Are there any fruits and vegetables that I should avoid giving my dogs? I do know treats and table scraps should make up no more than 10 percent of a dog's daily diet, but does this refer to fruits and vegetables?

Fruits and vegetables would be included in the 10 percent and are generally added to stimulate a dog's appetite or given out as small rewards. Fruits and vegetables make healthy additions to the diet so long as a dog has no adverse reaction, such as an upset stomach, nausea or loose stools. Many dogs enjoy a small piece of melon, and some even like oranges, but I've never know one that would eat celery.

My Shih Tzu Abby loves bananas, apples, oranges, canalope, watermellon, strawberries, celery, carrots, potatoes, peas, corn, nectarines
She pushes me to keep giving her more but I just give her a little. Is ther anything she should not have and she loves sweet potatoes and peanuts.

Probably should have cautioned against feeding foods such as grapes, raisins, onions, garlic, macadamia nuts, etc (reference: t-Are-Hazardous-to-Dogs-.aspx )
