Cooking healthy foods for your dog can be rewarding for both you and your pet. Be sure to use the best quality ingredients available (preferably organic, free range, etc.)
Some great heart healthy grains to try would be brown rice or oats. Dark leafy greens are great for dogs, as are green beans, carrots, and sweet potatoes. Dogs can also benefit from fruits such as apples and bananas. Organic peanut butter is a great way to add protein and a treat dogs love. Lean proteins like fish and chicken are great for Chihuahuas. a little olive oil is great to use when roasting or pan searing foods.
When cooking these foods dont worry with adding spices, salts, or sugars. Use simple cooking techniques that retain the nutritional value of the food such as roasting sweet potatoes or blanching green beans.
