Honest Kitchen Spinach Dog Treat

It’s easy being green, thanks to this easy to make spinach dog treat.

Spinach does a dog’s body good—it’s full of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin K, beta-carotene and plant crude fiber. And although our dogs won’t chow down on a salad, it doesn’t mean that they can’t benefit from its wonderful ingredients. By sneaking spinach into these treats, your dog won’t even know he’s eating a healthy vegetable. Bonus: they’ve also got peas, carrots, Brewer’s yeast and Honest Kitchen’s Verve Beef recipe!
