I have to respectfully disagree with this statement. Abby has been to a kidney specialist, 2 internal medicine doctors and a nutritionist. Yes, she has special dietary needs but they all agree that certain vegetables are good for not only her but my older, healthy dog too. Some vegetables are best served to them raw, some should always be cooked.

These are also great for them but they have to be cooked:
broccoli, cauliflower, corn, green beans, winter squashes, peas, potatoes (white or sweet)
Abby has been given special recipes by her nutritionist. The ingredients include tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, parsley, broccoli, chick peas, peas, lentils, raw sunflower seeds and cucumbers.
What I can't tell you is if the recommended cooked veggies are because of her condition or if they have to be cooked for everyone. When I go see her next week I will make sure to ask.
