Default Feeding Green Beans

Jake is on a diet on the vets recommendation and only has 40g of Acana split into two meals.

I give him fresh green beans which I have to put it the microwave otherwise he won't eat them.

How many should Ibe giving him, I know ome say they give 1/3 of a tin but I don't buy tinned.

Cheers

Deme x

Give him as many as he wants. Mine eats them raw right out the garden & she'll eat 3 or 4.

I agree, if he's hungry let him eat the green beans. You can have more fresh than what's in the tin, no sodium etc.

I think if you're giving fresh don't worry about how many he's getting.

But even though they say green beans don't have calories surely eating loads would have some. I can't give him more food than the vet has suggested as Jake is about 1.5lb over weight and needs to lose it with having the surgery on both back legs.

I believe a cup of fresh is 40calories or something silly so I think you're fine, and going by that ratio if you fed him 10 4" green beans it'd only be something like 18-20 calories.

I heard twice a day, 1/3 of a cup of beans with 1/3 cup of water and 2 teaspoons of canned food heated in microwave. That's the ratio I give Willow.

Depends on the size of the cup
