    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell us what vegetables (fresh or frozen) we can give our dogs to keep them fuller for longer and if they have frozen can they eat them frozen straight away or do they need to be cooked

    Kind regards Mark

    I feed my dogs a lot of veggies mainly because it's cheaper than buying true hypoallergenic treats as all my dogs react to different foods. Here's what I give mine: (note:Feed only small amounts and start by cutting them up small as it's easier for them to digest).

    Carrot: raw is best but lightly boiled/steamed is ok too

    Sweet potato: dehydrated or boiled.

    Squash/pumpkin: canned, boiled or dehydrated

    Kale: raw

    Broccoli: raw or lightly cooked

    Green beans: lightly cooked but I guess raw is ok too but best get someone to verify that first.

    Zucchini: raw

    Spinach: raw

    Parsnip and swede: cooked

    Veggies higher in fibre is what you want to aim to use. My lot get a variety, normally what is left as 'scraps' but I do batches of cooked potato and squash then put it in the fridge for a maximum of 3 days. It doesn't last any longer regardless with 3 dogs and 4 hamsters.

    Hope this points you in the right direction and gets you started :)

    Mia loves green beans, carrot, banana, cucumber and goes absolutely mad for apples!!

    We also put mashed potato in a kong for her as a treat but we make it ourselves as I was wary about what additives may be in the shop bought ones.

    Oh and also, make sure all pips are taken out of apples as they contain traces of cyanide that could potentially be harmful to your pet. Better safe than sorry!
