    I give Brutus strawberries, bannana, apple (no seeds) , watermelon ( NO Grapes or Raisins) Veggies I give mostly everything but he loves green beans..Brutus gets 1 egg every other morning and every night with his Fromm he gets 1 -2 tbsp of plain yogurt with his food

    I occasionally feed veggies and sometimes fruit. Usko is the pickiest eater. He loves pineapple and I always give him the harder parts of the fresh pineapple and some softer too. I don't know how well his body uses fruits cause they haven't change a lot on the way out....
    All veggies I pure and freeze before mixing it with his raw food, but I can tell that it's never his favorite meal. I think if yor dog likes them and can handle them, why not, but they are not essential.
    If your bully is susceptible to yeast or other skin problems it's wise to stay clear of sweet fruits. Too much sugar is not good even from fruits. And when you start introducing new things do it one at the time so you know if your puppy can take it.

    Brutus is 11 months! Thanks! I waited until he was older b/c I didnt know any better! Brutus was just shy of 8 months when we started fruits/veggies.. @deserstskybulldogs can answer at what age to start ??? I would say 4 months but she knows much better! I was reading chat and see that you feed Euakaneba (I cant spell it) I would switch to better puppy food until 4 months or so! Eaukanuba is LOL I was feeding a 5 star and since swithching to a 6 star Brutus looks great! You should maybe switch foods give it about 1 mnth or 2 on new food and then slowly introduce the veggies/fruit...Fromm has great foods (puppy and then after 4 mnths you cn switch him to all stages (grain free)...Let me know if you need anything else

    LOL This site is the best! Taught me so much about food and ingredients...I have noticed a good difference in Brutus since switching! Food is really trial and error and what works for some doesnt work for all..I just like from b/c they have a lot of flavors and its no slow switch so its nice to just switch it up at times..Plus their food is made with real ingredients no bi products and fillers..Thats what everyone is here for to learn as much as we can!

    I tried the green beans for Otis but he kinda chewed and sucked on them and left them on the floor - he loves peeled apples and I have also been mixing a tablespoon of babyfood squash in his dinner at night (dinner is Blue Buffalo) right now, but plan to switch to Fromm soon.

    I purchased salmon oil and give a couple squirts every other day or so.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    Forgive maybe a silly question, the egg is raw correct?

    Speaking of eggs I just have to put this out there because it sounds so good: for human consumption: hard boiled egg wrapped in jimmy dean sausage (the roll kind) and baked or deep fried = yummy!

    Vegas is 3 years old, he gets banana, apple (no seeds) blueberries, melons, yogurt, baby carrots, fresh green beans. I switch them all around for his bedtime snacks, or a treat.
