It’s a new day and time to start a new habit—-adding vegetables to your pet’s diet. For dogs—there is a vast array to choose from: green beans, broccoli, shredded cabbages, carrots, okra, spinach, zucchini, carrots, spaghetti squash and more. For cats: rumor has it that some like asparagus and butternut squash. Vegetables are real food. They contain enzymes, vitamins and minerals in their natural form. To keep it simple, buy frozen and just defrost or warm a few pieces. Mix into canned food if your pet is finicky. The benefits are plenty. Vegetables are fantastic for helping pets lose weight too. A healthy pet starts with good nutrition!

Embracing a holistic approach to your pet's nutrition not only involves incorporating a variety of vegetables but also understanding the significance of a balanced diet. Beyond vegetables, consider including high-quality protein sources suitable for your pet's dietary needs. Protein is essential for muscle development, immune function, and overall vitality. Opt for lean meats, poultry, or fish.  Additionally, explore the benefits of incorporating omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in fish oil or flaxseed, promoting a healthy coat and supporting joint health. By diversifying your pet's diet with a range of nutrient-rich foods, you contribute to their overall well-being, ensuring they receive the essential building blocks for a healthy and happy life. Remember, gradual introductions and consultation with your veterinarian can guide you in tailoring a nutrition plan that aligns with your pet's specific requirements.

Give Your Dog Vegetables For Good Health

Here is Legend’s haul of vegetables for this week. Giving vegetables to your pet is so important and variety is the spice of life. Different vegetables have prebiotic fibers that feed bacteria in your pet’s microbiome. Your pet's microbiome is the colony of organisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc) that coexist. A healthy gut is the core of a healthy immune system. You can buy frozen vegetables and use a little bit of each to make a medley. Last week we used peas and carrots, a bit of shredded beets, cabbage, broccoli, squash and green beans. This week you can see we are using okra, spinach, collard greens, dandelion, asparagus and more. If you haven’t given your pets vegetables before, start with just a small amount and mix into food. We gently heat them and mix in his raw frozen meals and Amazing Omegas. Vegetables provide vitamins, minerals, fiber, fresh enzymes and real food to a pet’s diet.
