Yes! Beets are safe for your dog to eat in moderation and are a healthy source of vitamin C, fiber, folate, manganese, and potassium. These vitamins and minerals are good for your dog’s digestion and immune system as well as a healthy skin and coat.
While it’s rare, some dogs can be allergic. Monitor your dog if you decide to feed your dog beets.
Dogs can eat beets:
- Cooked and mashed as an occasional treat.
- Added to a homemade meal that’s balanced with a good source of protein.
- Shredded as a topping to your dog’s dinner.
