Root Vegetables- carrots, beetroot, sweet potato

Carrots- Great for dogs. Some dogs love munching on them raw. Try it!  Packed with Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, E, K. Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium and Zinc. You can also finely chop the green tops into vegie mixes for your pooch.

Beetroot- at GPFK we use beetroot very sparingly. Really just when we have some leftover from our own lunch or dinner. Be warned that the red colour compound betanin is not processed by the body and can make your dog’s urine and faeces take on a red tinge which can be alarming when you first see it.  Beetroot contains all the same great trace minerals as carrots plus Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and C.

Sweet potato- Dogs love sweet potato. You can bake them whole and scoop out the soft flesh and add it to beautiful fresh meat, eggs or fish with some green leafy vegies, herbs and extras and make a delicious and nutritious meal for your pup. Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, C, E and K are present. And they contain all the same trace minerals as carrots plus Copper and Selenium.
