Sweet potatoes are a safe and healthy food for dogs. Sweet potatoes are a complex carbohydrate and a great energy source.
Sweet potatoes can provide dogs with several health benefits. The high fiber content of sweet potatoes can help improve a dog's digestive health, and unlike some other sources of fiber, they are low in fat.
Sweet potatoes are also high in beta-carotene which is an antioxidant that converts to vitamin A in the body. This antioxidant is important for healthy vision, muscle strength, and growth.
Adding sweet potatoes to your dog's daily diet can be done by steaming and serving your dog this healthy ingredient or finding a food or treat that is made with sweet potatoes.
As with any diet change, introduce this new ingredient gradually to your dog's diet. A sudden change or increase in this fibrous ingredient may cause digestive upset.
