Bring on the Broccoli
Joe Wicks calls broccoli stems ‘midget trees’. Selectively bred from various brassicas in Italy some two thousand years ago, I’m sure broccoli has had plenty of other names between then and now.

Can dogs eat broccoli? Well, yes they can. Of all the vegetables you can feed your dog, broccoli has to be right up there in the goodness department. I frequently use it in my homemade dog food recipes.
Broccoli is considered one of the most important of leafy green vegetables as far as nutrients are concerned. A study involving Scottish Terriers showed that feeding a dog leafy green vegetables three times a week can reduce the chance of a dog developing cancer by a whopping 90%.
Over the years, I’ve heard people say so many negative things about dogs and broccoli. But I’ve been feeding my dogs broccoli for years and never had an issue.
You can finely dice and steam or boil your dog’s broccoli. You can even serve it with other boiled or steamed vegetables for a light supper.
Dogs can even benefit from broccoli stems. Tougher than the rest of the plant, the stems are arguably the most nutritious and healthy for dogs. Simply finely dice the entire stem and boil or steam a little longer than the broccoli florets and the other vegetable ingredients being used.
I never waste any part of broccoli and my dogs thrive on it. Just ensure that broccoli makes up less than 10% of your dog’s daily diet. And only feed, say, once or twice a week.
So there you have it. The answer to the question, can dogs eat broccoli!
If you make homemade food for your dog, you'll need to supplement to make that food complete. My natural supplements are made in-house with canine nutritionist approved 100% natural ingredients with no additives or preservatives of any kind.
