    Default how much fruit, how often?

    karlin said that my pup jasmine can eat bananas and apples which she really enjoys, i usually give her half an apple and half a banana about every 4 days, how often should fruit really be fed and how big or small a portion as i dont want to overdo it

    You can feed that amount every day if you want. Try her on some veggies too -- mine like carrot sticks and green or red bell pepper slices (not the hot ones of course!). Also pears are popular, and most berries.

    If you want her to get some nutritional value from most veg and fruit then it needs to be pulverised (eg very finely grated or put through a juicer or cooked and mashed) but even in sticks as a treat, these are low-cal treats and good roughage for them.

    Default Fruit & Dogs

    Are frozen green beans OK to give as well? This morning Sophie found a strawberry that I must've dropped yesterday in the kitchen - she ate it and I was hoping it was an OK berry for dogs to eat! (she even tried my potato salad for my lunch )

    Strawberries are great for them! Nice and soft; my mom's cavalier adores them. Also frozen green beans are fine, either raw or cooked. Good 'filler' for fat cavaliers needing to lose weight, too.

    We can't get Zola eat any of this stuff. I'd love for her to eat more veg but the closest we have come is when she chews up and then spits out carrot!
