I want to be able to feed my dog some healthy vegies or fruit, rather than just his plain old dog food(yuck) Will it be ok if i put a lil bit of vegies and fruit in his doggy dish along with his dog food? What can dogs eat and what can't they eat! Thank you! Shyann and her dog!
Carrots, tomatoes, potatoes(my guys love sweet potatoes)green beans, peas, green pepper(not to many like these)brocolli. NO ONIONS Bananas, apples, cranberries, raspberries, blueberries are the only ones that come to mind right now. NO GRAPES OR RASINS, OR NUTS. Turkey(no skin) Chicken, beef(love organ meat) I prefer to feed the meat raw. Do not feed proceeded meats like lunch meats, sausage, bacon with nitrates.

Mine like carrot peels (since they don't notice they are there). Really though, dogs don't need many veggies or fruits. Try supplementing with meat/protein instead. Rutabega (spelling?) is good, and they like it.

about 1-2x per week I mix my dogs' dry food with chopped carrots, beans, pea pods, zuchini (which the love), green pepper, and cucumber. I keep a bunch of it chopped in the fridge and also will use it as an in between snack if they are being good...like always, right? lol!
Vegetables are very good for them (especially as treats for overweight dogs like my foster lab...she is about 20 lbs overweight...poor girl almost passed out going around the block today, probably the most exercise she'd ever gotten!)

Oakley's favorites are: green beans, peas broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, watermelon, and apples. She likes corn but it doesn't break down in their digestive tract and I hate trying to pick it up in the yard.
Yes, dogs can eat cooked eggs, raw is better though, spectacular if they'll eat the shell, too! It's okay to give your dogs fruits and veggies, just don't make them a staple of their diet. IMO, dogs don't need them nutrition-wise.
turkey is not good for dogs & can in fact make them extremely sick. Our phone used to ring off the wall at the AEC on Thanksgiving & Christmas with calls about dogs with diahrrea & vomiting from turkey.
Regular peas have a hard shell & are not digestable the same as corn.
thank you so much for everyones help! I have fed my dog turkey before and he has ended up having tummy aches after wards :( won't feed him turkey again. Today I am gonna try and give my dogs yogurt. And can dogs have pineapple?
Lacy's on a Nature's Variety Raw and I usually alternate the meat types I feed her. They make a chicken/turkey formula which she has eaten plenty of times and it never makes her sick. Maybe turkey only hurts them in large quantities.
