Yes. Lentils are a great source of iron, fiber, and plant-based protein. Lentil’s low-calorie, high-fiber content helps dogs feel fuller when eating and while keeping blood levels from spiking too sharply after a meal. This makes them a great supplement for diabetic pets.
Dogs will enjoy eating lentils in small or moderate amounts after they’ve been soaked and cooked without spices. Dogs can eat lentils:
- Mixed with a meat protein and vegetable for a homemade meal
- Blended and incorporated into a smaller portion of your dog’s store-bought food
- In small amounts as a snack or treat
