Yes! Green peas are a healthy treat for your dog as they are high in vitamin A, vitamin K, and various B vitamins. Peas are also a good source of fiber, iron, zinc, potassium, and magnesium. These vitamins and minerals are good for your dog’s vision, skin, digestion, immune system, nerves, heart, and more.
Peas aren’t recommended for dogs with kidney issues as they contain purines that can further aggravate the kidneys. Dogs that eat too many peas can experience gas and other digestive issues.
Dogs can eat green peas:
- Cooked as an ingredient in a homemade meal that’s balanced with a good source of protein.
- As a crunchy frozen treat.
- Washed and fresh from the garden. Avoid canned peas as they can be high in sodium.
