Yes! Sugar snap peas are easy for your dog to digest and are high in vitamin A, vitamin K, and various B vitamins. These peas are also a good source of fibre, 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 are not recommended for dogs with kidney issues as they contain purines that can further aggravate the kidneys.
Dogs can eat sugar snap peas:
- Washed and fresh from the garden. Only feed your dog a few at a time.
- Cooked as an ingredient in a homemade meal that’s balanced with a good source of protein.
- Chopped into bite size pieces as a topping on your dog’s food.
