I've searched around but can't seem to find an answer to this question: Is it safe to feed a puppy (5 months old) baby food sweet potatoes? I'm trying to use healthy, all natural foods to stuff in her Kong and someone in here posted that she or he uses baby food in their Kongs. In the store I was at today, the only baby food WITHOUT onion powder in it was sweet potatoes, so I bought it but don't want to give it to her until I know it's safe. Any thoughts? I'm so freaked out with all this pet food recall stuff so I'm really trying to be extra-careful about what I feed to my little pup! Thanks guys.

Henry LOVES sweet potatoes!! :D

I never thought of using baby food! Brilliant!

I usually steam them, then mash them and put them in his Kong with other goodies.

I would want to know if the natural sugar/carbs would be okay, and not throw anything else out of balance. Maybe consult a nutritionist? It is hard to find balanced natural treats it seems. Some folks swear by yogurt, yet that is horribly high in Ca++... something we try to keep minimal in large breed puppy diets to help keep growth slow. Others push peanut butter which of course is high in fat and calories! I personally stick to nylabones around here for entertainment, so I don't mess w/ my diet. I use a portion of their kibble for early puppy training, then we graduate to better stuff like bits of beef heart or liver.... -Anne

Yes, my dogs love it, and it's good if you need to hide something in their food, but I try not to overdo it. -Anne
