Vegetables Pomeranians Can Eat and Ones to Avoid.
There are also vegetables dangerous to dogs, especially small Pomeranians and these vegetables to avoid include: corn, rhubarb, garlic and onions. If you’re ever in doubt, avoid whatever option you’re considering until you know whether it’s safe or not.
Remember the olden days when you were forbidden to leave the dinner table while there was still food left on your plate? This also included all vegetables. If you didn’t like some veggies when you were younger, today you have probably grown accustomed to eating them. Most of the vegetables that you can get are full of all the essential nutrients that we need to thrive in today’s toxic environment.
Have you ever thought about whether your Pomeranian can also benefit from the powerful nutrients in vegetables?
The good news is yes! Pomeranians can enjoy a wide range of vegetables. However, a small number of vegetables are toxic to dogs, so ensure you create, and keep, a list of safe vegetables handy so your Pom can enjoy a tasty vegetable treat each day.
Poms really love eating potatoes. However, raw potatoes aren’t good for small dogs to eat so it’s essential to fully cook your potatoes, regardless of the variety. Sweet potatoes are a better choice of potatoes because they’re full of nutrients including vitamins A, B6, C, E and iron and calcium.
Your Pomeranian might enjoy certain extra crunchy options because they help to promote healthy teeth. Feed your Pomeranian puppy baby carrots and celery as they also help keep his breath smelling good. But don’t add dip as that may cause problems with his digestion
Doctors are always advising that we eat plenty of green vegetables and they’re right. Pomeranians also need to eat greens. One great choice is cucumbers and they’re perfect if your dog is lethargic or overweight because they’re low in calories and high in energy-boosting powers. Small puppies should eat spinach as it contains iron and various cancer-fighting properties. Then there are green beans, a superfood that contains plenty of vitamins and lots of calcium and fiber.
Broccoli is highly nutritious as long as you don’t feed your Pom too much because that can cause harm. Broccoli, Brussel sprouts and a few others contain isothiocyanate. In large amounts, your pet can experience gastrointestinal problems for your beloved pet, leading to excessive gas and diarrhea, or constipation, then leading to dehydration which is very dangerous for such a small dog. Broccoli contains 10% of a Pom’s RDA and, because of its dangerous ingredient, it may be wise to avoid feeding him these particular foods completely.
You could include some of the better options in a routine meal plan. There are numerous dog food brands that are largely “fillers” – useless, cheap ingredients that help make the companies a lot more profit while not providing any benefit for the dogs. Adding vegetables to these commerical dog foods will increase the nutritional value.
Many owners like creating meals from scratch. There are loads of recipes available but they mostly all follow a general pattern of a lean meat and a few nutritious, delicious vegetable options that satisfy your dog’s appetite without the need for junk food.
