Healthy foods to feed your dogs soul are not so different than what healthy food would feed your own soul…
They include fresh fruits and veggies right from your kitchen. Each one making great treats for your dogs, and treats you can share!
Some top dog snacks right from you fridge may include: carrots, green beans, blueberries, apples, frozen peas, sweet potatoes, bananas, and even broccoli!
Veggies (and Fruits) provide great nutrition for both you and your dog. In addition to the food items right from your fridge, giving your dog a yummy wholesome biscuit blending some of these wholesome ingredients can help build strong teeth and bones. As you can see Gussie the pup loves Melissa’s Nut Butter Veggies Power biscuits!
