Yes! Black beans are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese. They’re also loaded with protein and fiber, which help to burn fat, regulate your pet’s blood sugar, and strengthen her immune system.
Dogs will enjoy black beans in limited amounts incorporated into other foods. Avoid raw or canned beans, or beans cooked with spices. Dogs can eat black beans:
- Soaked overnight, drained, and cooked
- Then mixed with rice, meat, and a vegetable for homemade dog food
- On their own in small amounts as a snack
