Kale

Anyone every feed Kale to your dog. I put it in my last batch of raw.

C/P

Kale is one of the superfoods for dogs that is easy to add to their diets and usually very easy to find. It can be added shredded, chopped or leafy, steamed, baked, sautéed or raw, depending on how your dog will eat it. It provides many nutrients and lowers cholesterol. Kale is known to help prevent at least 5 types of cancer in humans and research suggests it does the same in animals. Kale serves as both an anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant. The unique combination of flavonoids with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories has been shown to alleviate chronic joint stress and daily wear and tear. Also for daily health, kale is known to contain essential vitamins often missing or insufficient in dog food including: beta carotene, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein and zeaxanthin.

Thanks for the info.

I do not feed raw, but always looking for healthy foods to feed as treats. Never would have thought of kale. My MacKenzie is part rabbit, and loves raw veggies, I am sure she will love kale too.

We feed kale to our guinea pigs as a treat, but we found that Cookie absolutely loves the stem parts, and will happily eat the entire leaf.

I feed my dog kale all the time. I make all of the food for my dog. I feed raw occasionally but mostly cooked food.
