Veggies are not just for humans

Updated: May 21, 2023

If you like vegetables , so will your dog. This is a list of veggies that are a good source of nutrition for your fur baby.


Broccoli is filled with fiber, but it can cause flatulence in your dog. It also has antioxidants and vitamins that help dogs fight health issues like asthma and cancer.

Celery is good for your dog's stomach. Celery has a high water content, plus it's high in fiber and low in calories. It contains vitamins A, B, C, and K as well as folate, potassium and manganese - all of which are essential for good health! However you must remove the string from the celery before giving it to your fur baby.

Green beans are low in calories and rich in fiber, making them great for your dog. They contain vitamins A, B6, C, and K along with protein, iron, calcium and fiber. Just make sure the green beans are unsalted.

Cauliflower is a food your dog will love! It's high in fiber, vitamins C and K, and folate. It has a mild flavor and it can be easily mashed into crumbles if you prefer.

Lettuce is a great source of nutrients and vitamins for dogs, but make sure it's not too much. Lettuce is low in calories, full of fiber, and 90% water so it's great for hydration. Romaine, arugula, and iceberg lettuce are all fine for your dog but spinach and kale can be harmful in large amounts.

Carrots are a healthy treat for dogs who need to keep their diet rich in vitamins and minerals. They are high in fiber, which aids in digestion, but low in calories so they can be a good choice for overweight or diabetic dogs. They also have beta-carotene that gives them vitamin A, which helps keep your dog's eyesight healthy and can reduce risk of infection caused by blue light rays.

Bell peppers are rich in antioxidants and vitamins that are great for dogs. Red bell peppers are the most nutritious. Bell peppers can help promote skin, coat, and eye health for your dog.

Dogs can safely eat zucchini in small pieces. It’s low in calories, fat, and cholesterol. It’s full of fiber, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins A, C, B6 and K.

Brussel sprouts are a great vegetable for dogs, particularly when they're cooked. They're full of fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins A, B1, B6 and C - as well as potassium and manganese. But be warned: too much brussels can cause gas and other stomach issues in your dog

Cabbage is good for your dog, as it contains fiber and antioxidants. This helps keep their digestive system healthy, while also providing them with vitamins A, B6, C, and K. However, it can also cause increased gas in some dogs.

Mushrooms are good for your dog. They are a traditional food in many cultures and have been shown to have health benefits for dogs. White mushrooms from the grocery store—when completely plain and washed—are safe for dogs. Be sure not to give your dog mushrooms that are cooked with seasonings or ingredients that are unhealthy or even toxic to dogs, such as garlic or onions.

If your dog has eaten a substance that could be harmful, call Animal Poison Control immediately or take your dog to your veterinarian.
