Dog Treat Recipe: Coconut Oil + Beetroot Powder Hearts

Can dogs eat beets? Yes! In fact, beetroot powder has many nutritional benefits for dogs. Click the image above for our YouTube Short.

According to the American Kennel Club:  

“Beets are loaded with fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including Vitamin C, potassium, folate, and magnesium. The skin contains betalain pigments, which have antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. 

In moderation, as a snack or food topping, beets are beneficial to a dog’s skin and coat and their digestion. Your dog should be getting all the nutrients they need in their regular diet, so think of beets as a little something extra.”
