Dogs can eat spinach!
Yes they can eat spinach. Spinach can be eaten by your dog especially if he is suffering from anemia. Spinach is rich in iron which aids in the production of red blood cells which is commonly low for dogs suffering from anemia. Most vets will advise you to add some green leafy vegetables to your dog’s diet if he is anemic. The most recommended green leafy vegetable that contains high amounts of iron is the spinach. You can boil it, steam it, juice it as well as add it directly to your dog’s meal. Just make sure you chop it as finely as possible before adding it to your dog’s food. You can serve it to your dogs in any way you want just make sure that it will be served cooked. Raw spinach can be quite difficult for your dog to digest and can often cause stomach ache or GI upset.
Spinach is also rich in beta carotene and fiber. It helps aid your dog’s digestion and promotes regular bowel movement. It would be advisable to give spinach to your dog if he is suffering from constipation. Spinach is also a good source of vitamin K which is needed for bone development.
