Bentley & asparagus

I always give the dogs fresh veggies with their last meal of the day. Last night all I had was asparagus, Ky wouldn't go near it so I gave it all to Bentley.

He loved it, scarfed it all down and wanted more. I thought, it's a holiday and veggies are good for him..why not. He ate quite a lot of it.

This is a public service announcement:
Save yourself...don't do it!!!

If I owned a gas mask I would have worn it to bed! Who knew a puppy was even capable of producing that much stink?!

The funny part was even the smell bothered him but he kept looking at us like WE were making that smell

Noted! Oh Joyce, Bentley's a legend! Barnaby stole and ate a tin of baked beans once and the result, well your description of needing a gas mask is spot on. Go Bentley!!

I am trying to find the website where is said that asparagus is not recommended for dogs. Maybe that's why!

When I started reading this thread, I wondered if you were going to regret your decision. Hope Bentley knows better for next time Ky was the smart one, I would turn my nose up at asparagus too.

My vet said it was fine to give him asparagus. Just no green grapes, onions or garlic.

EDIT:
Can dogs eat asparagus, or is asparagus toxic for dogs? - Questions & Answers | VetInfo/QA

yup yup: "There have been reports of very stinky gas, green colored poo, and even in a rare case diarrhea, although most owners do not report any side effects. If you would like to give your dog asparagus, I recommend giving a bit at a time to see how your dog reacts to it."

Joyce, add avocados to your list of no-no's. Avocado toxicity is not a pretty picture, either, and can be fatal.

Golden retrievers think life is a party thrown especially for them

What foods are bad for dogs? And why?

all this stuff on the net should be taken with a grain of salt. I guess it all depends on how much and what and when.

We'll make sure to have gas masks handy if Rose ever gets into asparagus - I love asparagus.
