This week, I saw a nice looking head of cauliflower. Shiner has not tried cauliflower before, and it's been a long time since I've eaten it too so I picked it up and put it in my cart.
Of course, I've never heard that it's bad for dogs to eat Cauliflower so I had to search the internet to make sure. Just in case.
Can dogs eat cauliflower? The answer is yes, but in moderation as is the case with many treats. Cauliflower can make your dog gassy, so if you want to avoid it you might just feed a little bit at a time.
Other than that, cauliflower is a healthy snack for dogs and can be fed either fresh or cooked. Cauliflower is very similar to broccoli, but broccoli tends to have more flavor.
One interesting thing I just learned about cauliflower is that it contains isothiocyanate which is a carcinogen blocker and can prevent cancer cells from spreading. It's also a good source of vitamins and fiber for your dog.
Shiner was very curious in finding out what my head of cauliflower was. She kept trying to bite pieces off and she might think it's a toy. I'm sure she'd have a blast shredding it...
Stop by here tomorrow and we will share a tasty cauliflower dog treat recipe!
