My dog LOVES carrots but I have to shred them. I serve them raw, I haven't tried giving them to her cooked but I will.

My dog loves all these veggies. I have always given her fresh veggies and fresh fruit that is safe for dogs to have.

And yet I read another article that states in large portions, broccoli can be lethal to
dogs.

"The amount of broccoli that your dog can consume without experiencing any negative side effects specifically depends on the size of your dog. One piece of broccoli to a Labrador might be fine, but could be potentially deadly to a pint-sized dog such as a Chihuahua. It has been determined that your dog can have some broccoli as long as it accounts for less than 5% of their daily food intake. Any more than 10% of your dog’s daily diet can cause serious stomach problems and can be fatal if it makes up more than 25%.

How can it be so difficult to feed a dog without making dog food companies rich for feeding our dogs garbage?

Thanks for the informative update on veggies for pets. Mine usually eat carrots raw but but grate it up. Broccoli and cauliflower I boil for a while. I've not tried cucumbers though. Sound interesting.

I have 4 kids and i soften their dry kibble (weight management formula) with a broth i make from slow cooking boneless, skinless chicken (which i then use in their kibble also) and cooking half a bag of frozen mixed veggies then whipping into a broth and thickened with a little corn starch. A spoon of this broth and a small amount of chicken makes them healthy and happy and when they need pills (which Molly the golden lab) take every meal goes down with no problems.

And it's important to note, as one reader said, NO onion or garlic. Garlic is safe only in small amounts and best left to the expertise of pharmaceutical companies that formulate supplements for canines. Onion is NEVER safe. I also have an 8 yr old large dog that loves chopped apple, but be aware to never give your dog he core to chew on, as ingesting the seeds can be fatal (just like eating grapes and raisins can be).

I regularly slow cook boneless skinless chicken thighs with any combo of the following (with my DVM-&holistic vet's hearty approval): chopped celery, peeled chopped carrots, sweet potato, yams, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, white potatoes (about a ratio of 60% meat to 40% varied veggies). When soft (about 8 hrs on low), I remove meat & veg with slotted spoon and use tongs to shred/mash. I then stir in, while mixture is hot, a handful of chopped raw spinach. The heat of the mix will cook the spinach. Cool in the fridge UNcovered (so as to discourage bacterial growth -cover once cooled) and use a small amount (but no more than half) to top their kibble or canned food. I have 2 elderly large dogs, one with congestive heart failure and one with liver disease, and the veggies contribute to improving their compromised health, along with traditional meds and herbal (approved) supplements. Both are 13 years old. The dog with CHF was expected to pass soon in May (8 months ago).
