Can I Give My Pet Vegetables?

Absolutely! There are many vegetables that you can feed your pet as a treat. They are great because they are low calorie and a good source of fibre. In this way, they can have more variety of fresh foods this way. It is recommended to feed vegetables over cheese, lunch meat or other human food, as treats to avoid obesity in our pets. Additionally, in this way, your pet will feel like it is getting something special. In the warmer seasons, you can freeze pre-cut vegetables, which is an entertaining treat that can also help keep them cool. There are, however, some vegetables that should be avoided, as they are toxic to pets such as onions, garlic, chives and leeks. Safe vegetables include cucumber, carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, snap peas, green or red pepper, lettuce, asparagus, sweet potatoes, zucchini, and eggplant.
