First of all beets are good for you, and they are also good for your dog. In fact my peep likes to add fresh beet to my meal to help keep my liver healthy.


Beets are a nutritional warrior of the root-vegetable realm. They’ve really got it all: beta-carotene, fiber, iron, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins A, B and C, just to start.
