    DefaultThe great green bean question

    Rush eats a half a can of green beans with her dinner every night. Well Boo decided she likes green beans too, so I have been giving her a few. My question is when should I start her on the 1/2 can thing? She is 7 mo. and isn't fat, very active but thinks she is starving to death. Rush is a typical lab and loves to eat but she doesn't act like she is starving. So should I go ahead and add a 1/2 can to Boo's dinner too???? ??? ??? ???

    Thanks for your advice, don't know what I'd do without you all.

    Sorry no advice, just a bit of envy. I think Toby is the world's only green-bean-hating lab. He doesn't like carrots either. Oh well.

    I'm certainly no expert... but if Boo likes them and doesn't have any effects (runny poo) then go ahead and add them... just rinse them first to get rid of some of the sodium. They're veggies, they must be good for them!

    Both of my guys about 2 TBS with each meal. Frankie has been getting them since I brought him home as a pup

    No advice. Just a comment that we use frozen green beans when we use them.... to avoid the salt that is in most canned products. (although you can probably get salt free canned ???) I just cook extra when I do them for us.

    Actually, I give CoCo the frozen green beans right out of the package... no cooking or thawing. I put them in her Kong. French cut of course!

    Don't think it will hurt and it will help to fill the tummy.

    I use canned beans and rinse them well before feeding them.

    I guess I am so new at this board but I don't know what the green bean thing is all about.

    Are they supposed to be good for them? All my dogs like veggies like carrots, broccoli ,spinach etc. But on a routine basis, no. Guess I need help on this.

    Susie,

    To answer your question: green beans are added to the dog's food as a filler (for keeping weight in check). They help fill the dog up, so they don't feel hungry, but doesn't add a lot of extra calories.

    My dog gained over the winter, plus gained from puppy food last year, so we switched him to adult food at about 10 mos., and add about 1/4 c. green beans to his 1 c. food in the am and pm.
