Yuck, Vegetables! Well, June 17 is National Eat Your Veggies Day, and the Three Dog Blog would like to encourage that behavior. Just like for people, incorporating veggies into your dog’s diet is a way to improve his or her health. Not only do vegetables add healthy antioxidants to your dog’s diet, they also are a significant source of soluble fiber and roughage which can promote intestinal health in your dog. Three Dog Bakery is committed to creating the best food and treats for dogs using only the best ingredients and that’s why we use fresh veggies. We even oven bake our food and treats, to maintain the irreplaceable nutrients found in them. With slow oven baking, the nutrients are not boiled out, but kept in the dough making a much healthier (and tastier) treat.

Eat These Veggies Today:

Sweet potatoes: Yup, pups love sweet potatoes. We love them because they are high-energy, low-calorie, fat-free, yummy ingredient. They are rich in beta-carotene, Vitamin A and loaded with potassium. These nutrients help to ensure heart health. Good for enthusiastic tail-waggin’ and healthy hearts. That’s a win – win! Sweet Potatoes can be found in the following Three Dog Bakery Food and Treats:

Green Beans: Green Beans are a good source of plant fiber, vitamin K, vitamin C, and manganese. If your dog has a tendency to put on weight, then replacing some of her regular food with green beans is a great low calorie way to fill her up and help her maintain a healthy weight.

Broccoli: Broccoli is often classified as a “super food” for humans, and is the same for dogs. The nutrients found in this popular vegetable, such as vitamin C, folic acid, calcium and fiber are central to a healthy dog. It is also claimed to contain several anti-cancer ingredients which is important because cancer can affect dogs just as it does humans. Broccoli can be found in the following Three Dog Bakery Food:
