Yes! Parsnips are healthy for your dog to eat and contain vitamins C and B6 as well as folic acid and potassium. These veggies are good for your dog’s metabolism, support a healthy nervous system, and are beneficial for dogs with kidney disease as they help stimulate kidney function. Parsnips also have antioxidants that help fight cancer.
Dogs can eat parsnips:
- In small doses on special occasions. Dogs that eat too many parsnips can have digestive issues.
- Raw. Finely chop and sprinkle them on top of your dog’s dinner bowl.
- Cook and mash them as a part of a homemade meal balanced with a good source of protein.
