Peas are dog-friendly!
Small and protein-packed, peas are one of nature’s true nutritional powerhouses. Despite their size, they are amongst the healthiest so called human foods you can feed to your dog, and amongst the earliest cultivated crops, dating originally to the Neolithic period.
As with so many of today’s fruits and vegetables, peas, or garden peas as they’re commonly known, emanated from the Mediterranean area thousands of years ago.
Benefits of Peas:
Peas are a great source of vitamins C and K, and a good source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B9 together with protein, fibre, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc and potassium.
They can help retard the aging process because they contain antioxidants and flavonoids along with alpha and beta-cerotene.
They can also help strengthen a dog’s immune system, help reduce arthritis due to their antioxidant-rich anti-inflammatory properties, help boost a dog’s energy levels and assist in warding off both cancer because of their polyphenol, and osteoporosis because of their vitamin B and K content.
Oh, and they’re also low in calories!
Preparing & Cooking:
Garden peas (fresh or frozen) should be cooked as you would normally. They can be fed raw but the nutrients are less bioavailable that way.
Combine boiled or steamed peas with other ingredients and apportion or serve.
See recipe suggestion below or visit recipes for further suggestions.
Do not feed your dog peas if he or she has kidney problems. Peas contain purine, a naturally occurring chemical compound which produces uric acid. Too much uric acid can lead to kidney stones and other kidney conditions.
Fresh or frozen garden peas are just fine, but do not give your dog tinned peas of any kind because of their added sodium.
Sugar snap peas are also great and dogs can eat the pods as well.
With fresh garden peas you will need to shell them first.
Follow recipe guidelines to ensure moderation and to avoid digestive issues.
