Orange Vegetables For Pets


The autumn harvest brings an abundance of orange vegetables and fruits. Did you know that orange foods are beneficial for cats and dogs? Orange foods such as pumpkin, sweet potatoes, yams, butternut squash and carrots are a natural source of potassium, fiber, Vitamin C and beta carotene. The fiber in pumpkin can help regulate loose stool or constipation. Carrots contain lutein, a flavonoid that supports eye health. When adding any new veggies to your pet’s diet, it’s best to start slowly with just a small piece initially.
