Parsnips are dog-friendly!
A root vegetable closely related to both carrot and parsley, the parsnip is a biennial plant native to Eurasia. Considered to be an aphrodisiac by the Ancient Romans, parsnips were once used as a sweetener before sugar cane became available in Europe.
Benefits of Parsnips:
Low in calories and high in fibre, parsnips are a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals and make an excellent and beneficial occasional accompaniment to any dog dish. They’re considered to have anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. They can help reduce cholesterol levels, help boost the metabolism, enrich a dog’s immune system, enhance heart, muscle, nerve and kidney function and promote cell growth.
Oh, and the soluble and insoluble fibre makes them particularly beneficial to the digestive system!
Parsnips are a good source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, C, E and K. They’re also a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, zinc and fibre.
Preparing & Cooking:
Finely dice and boil with other vegetable ingredients or steam or boil whole and mash or purée.
Grate and sprinkle raw on top of your dog’s meal before serving or combine boiled or steamed parsnip with other ingredients and apportion or serve, or give your dog puréed parsnips as an occasional treat at supper time for example.

Do not peel your dog’s parnsips. Most of the nutrients are near to the surface, so simply wash them if necessary, top and tail them and they’re ready to go.
Follow recipe guidelines to ensure moderation and to avoid digestive issues.
