Yes! Kidney beans contain antioxidants that help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and ward off disease.
Raw kidney beans, however, contain a toxin that’s dangerous to pets, so make sure to cook the beans first.
Dogs will enjoy kidney beans that are cooked, not from the tin. It’s best to buy in bulk, soak the beans overnight, and cook them without seasoning or spices. Dogs can eat kidney beans in small servings:
- Mixed with a healthy grain, vegetable, and protein
- As a light snack
