Here’s another quick one. We’re going to talk about dogs eating peas today. Peas are safe for dogs and they are nicely complemented by carrots, and even rice. What you should do however is, puree or cook the peas and carrots so your dog can benefit from the nutrients in them. Without cooking the peas and carrots, your dog cannot break down the cellulose in the veggies. By cooking them for your dog, you are aiding in the breaking down process and allowing our dog to take in nutrients that he or she normally would not have.
Raw peas and carrots seem to be fine for dogs as well but remember, this isn’t the greatest option because they will mainly be going to waste since your dog won’t be able to digest them and benefit from the nutrients. It has also been noticed that carrots help naturally clean your dog’s teeth so that’s definitely a plus!
