Potatoes are dog-friendly!
The world’s most popular root vegetable, potatoes have their origins in modern day southern Peru and north western Bolivia where they were first cultivated before being introduced to Europe by the Spanish in the 16th century.
First domesticated somewhere between 7,000 and 10,000 years ago, the humble tater, tattie or spud was the principle source of energy for the Inca’s. Just to prove how far we’ve come in the modern world, today, in America, it’s possible to have potatoes delivered to friends and loved ones bearing personalized carved messages.
And people used to say we were mad for making homemade food for our dogs!
Benefits of Potatoes:
Boiled, mashed or baked, in moderation, dogs enjoy potatoes nearly as much as we do. They’re a good source of vitamins C and B6, potassium, manganese and fibre.
While white potatoes are not as nutritionally beneficial as sweet potatoes, dogs nonetheless benefit from as varied a diet as possible. And potatoes still contain sufficient nutrients, phytochemicals, flavonoids and antioxidants to contribute to good overall canine health.
Preparing & cooking:
Clean if necessary and cook the way you normally cook potatoes.
Serve baked, boiled or mashed, ideally with their skins on.

Dogs enjoy and can benefit from potatoes, but never raw, never green, never fried in oil, and certainly never with butter or salt on them. (So definitely no potato crisps or French fries)!
Follow recipe guidelines to ensure moderation and to avoid digestive issues.
