Yes! Turnips are healthy for your dog to eat and contain vitamins C and B6 as well as folic acid and magnesium. 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. Dogs with thyroid issues should avoid turnips as they can suppress the functioning of their thyroid.
Dogs can eat turnips:
- On special occasions. Dogs that eat too many turnips can have digestive issues.
