    Default Bell Pepper?

    We have been conversing with our breeder about various food stuffs you can use as treats for bullies and the majority of it I was familiar with because of this site. However she mentioned that from time to time her bullies love to have small slices of green bell peppers. Is this something that you can give to your baby or is it something we should stay away from? Will the small amount of capsaicin hurt thier sensitive tummy?

    I don't know if it's good for them or not. Dudley prefers red peppers to the green ones...and somehow he always knows when I'm cutting up the red ones!

    Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them...

    Peppers are natures antioxidents. They are high in vitamins A, C and B6 which means they are excellent for the immune system. They are also high in beta carotene which research shows may protect from certain cancers.

    My guys get green peppers a couple times a week if I have them. Abby ate them daily. She could hear you slice into a pepper from 3 rooms away!

    For me, her name was Abby

    Thank you for the info. We have a lot from friends gardens that will never be eaten in time. I didn't want to try giving her any without checking first.

    @Twice is 9weeks too young to give her a small slice to see if she likes it?

    Nope


    I think the sooner you start them eating healthy the better it is for them.
