What vegetables are perfectly safe and good for dogs? How about lentils?
Dr. Tajunnisa M
Hello. Yes! You can consider giving lentils in moderation as they are good source of proteins, carbs, vitamins and minerals. Examples for vegetables that are proven safe in pets are green beans, carrots, potatoes and beetroot, which should be cooked before giving. Raw cucumber is also a best option to be included in the diet.

Hi, vegetables like pumpkin, sweet potato, bottle gourd can be given regularly. Carrots, beans, broccoli, spinach, zucchini, cauliflower can be used routinely in small amounts (not exceeding 10% to 20% of total dietary intake). Vegetables like potatoes, beetroot and cabbage should be given occasionally in very small amounts.
Lentils eg moong, masoor, urad, yellow gram can be given routinely in small amounts. Rajmah and chickpea can be given once a week. Slightly overcooked lentils would be easier to digest
