Yes! Millet is a grain high in phosphorus, B-vitamins, and iron. Phosphorus is essential for healthy bones, and iron maintains energy levels and overall health. While some dogs thrive on grain-free diets, millet is a healthy source of carbohydrates for most dogs, and easier to digest than wheat. Millet flour can be baked into treats, and is a common ingredient in dog foods.
Dogs can enjoy millet:
- As an ingredient in canned or dry food
- Baked into treats with other healthy ingredients, like eggs
