My Fruit and Veggie Melee

My Fruit and Veggie Melee

Want to get more veggies and fruits in your dog’s diet? Well my fruit and veggie melee is a perfect mixture to add to your dog’s diet. Mix it with with kibble or canned wet food. It’s a perfect mix of vegetables and Fruit that I enjoy. The best part is you can mix it up each week to ensure that there is enough variety in your favorite pup’s diet. I usually try to combine different veggies and fruits that are in season and ripe. We also usually use at least three vegetables and fruits in the melee. You can use frozen or canned vegetables, just make sure that they do not contain added salt.

Vegetables are best served cooked and puree to break down the cell walls so that your dog can digest them properly and benefit from the nutritional value. Legumes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and squashes must be fully cooked in order to be digestible.

It’s all about your dog’s taste buds, but here is one of my favorite mix.

Ingredients:

(250 ml) 1 cup peeled carrots

(250 ml) 1 cup  green peas

1 banana

Directions:

1. In a large pot place carrots and pea in water to cover, cook until tender

2. Add banana to pot mix

3.Add pot mixture to a blender, and puree for about 30 seconds

Done.

Either use immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months. If frozen, thaw before using.

Please make sure that the veggies and fruits are safe. See:  Food I can’t tolerate

Other combinations to try:

A. 1 large pear, (250 ml) 1 cup fresh spinach, (125 ml) 1/2 cup grated carrot

B. 1-2 apples, (250 ml) l cup fresh lettuce, 1 cup green beans

C. 2 ripe bananas, 2 peaches, (250 ml) 1 cup pumpkin puree. (use plain pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling)

Note: Talk to your pet’s veterinarian before making serious changes to your animal’s diet.
