Sweet potatoes are one of our favorite, “go to” foods for Brickle and Digby. Sweet potatoes are great for digestive health because they’re high in dietary fiber. They’re also low in fat and contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, and manganese. What else? Sweet potatoes are gentle on dogs’ stomachs and that is great for elderly dogs.
We created this recipe so that when you share a picnic with your dog, you both can eat the same foods. Easier meal prep means for longer and more enjoyable time together. Of course, for the persons’ portion, you may want to add salt! Enjoy and please…get outside and have a picnic!
