My 6 1/2 month female chocolate lab "Izzy" recently found Broccoli Spears (freshly tossed in the garbage) and really enjoyed them. I'm wondering though if they're okay for her to eat Broccoli??
In addition since I'm posting (for the first time) I was wondering what anyone might know about Labs eatting carrotts and seedless watermellon?? Carrots had been advised through puppy kindergarden, and she loves them....and the watermellon too was a recent weekend finding over the holiday weekend.
Looking foward to hearing what you might know about Broccoli eatting.
I don't know about the other two- but I do know carrots are fine! Our pup LOVES them - carrots and icecubes are her favorite treats The vet just said to limit the carrot intake to a couple per day or it can give them loose stools...
Broccoli is fine. Never give her mushrooms, onions, grapes, rasins, and of course chocolate.
I substitute those fat Broccoli stems for rawhide bones sometimes. I give him only one small stem at a time...doesn't have an adverse effects on him

My dogs LOVE broccoli and carrots. We haven't tried watermelon.

Nellie eats any veggies that I eat. She gets 1/2 can green beans in her food each evening along with any other veggies she can beg from me. She also loves all fruit from bananas, blueberries, strawberries, apples, etc. When it's hot out try freezing some fruit for your pup.
My Puff especially likes pieces of bananas, peaches, apricots, pineapple, oranges, apple, watermelon, honey dew, cantaloupe, and mangoes.* I understand that apricot pits can be toxic so I only give her pieces of the flesh.* She likes carrots, too, but not as much as sweeter* fruits.

I've given Corby green seedless grapes. Are they not supposed to be good for dogs? ???Originally Posted by Oonas Dad
He loves them and doesn't show any ill effects, but maybe I shouldn't anymore.
grapes are HIGHLY toxic and can cause renal failure! Samll maounts may be ok but I would not risk it...
