Default Broccolli and Cauliflower

Is it safe to feed Broccolli and Cauliflower to Chi's, I just wondered as I give Jake Runner Beans and Carrots and was thinking about what I could give him as a change that is not fattening and helps him to feel full.

Thanks in advance

I gave Brody several pieces of broccoli a couple months back. It was steamed and seemed so healthy for him! He loved it. Well he had HORRIBLE diarrhea from it. And bloating gas. It was awful. It just poured out of him and he even pooped in his bed at night. It took about 4 days for the diarrhea to finally stop. I will never feed broccoli again!! That was my experience.

I've given broccoli to macy and jordan, but only a tiny pinch, (like 4 or 5 of the individual sprouts) it does make them very stinky!

Broccoli & Cauliflower generally give dogs gas & upset tummies.

Thanks for that, I am gonna stay away from those two veggies, Before I changed to Acana Jake stunk the house out every night and boy did he stink.

I already give him green beans which he loves and carrots but I was looking for something else to give variety

steamed broccoli is Stottie's ultimate treat
i've never seen a dog so excited about a food before.
Diefie will eat it if he has to (he's such a piggy that he can't bare to leave it in his bowl).
They don't get it very often, maybe once a week, and they don't get much - perhaps one sprout off the main bunch or a chi mouthful.
i've never noticed any bad result after they've eaten it. if you're unsure, just give a tiny amount and see what happens.
