  • carrots
  • celery

Ask Your Vet

If you are not sure if it is ok to feed it to your dog, call our local Albuquerque veterinarians and ask. We are happy to go over your dog’s dietary and nutrition needs. If your dog starts showing symptoms such as upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhoea, weakness, it is a good idea to call your vet. It is always better to be caustious becuase waiting too long, if your dog has toxic food poisoning, could be deadly.
