If you’ve been hanging around the Turning Leaf community much, you know we add veggie goodness to our dog MSgt Mason’s nutrition plan. He honestly loves vegetables. Mix them into a good bone broth for a warm soup and he is in dog Heaven! One of the easiest veggie recipes I can quickly put together is green beans for dogs in purée form. But who wants to eat green paste slopped into a feed pail? Not me, so I thought it would be fun to make green beans for dogs into puréed veggie paws! Our male silver Lab LOVES them! He picks them over plain bone-broth paws every time.

Oh Yeah… There’s Always Some Bone-Broth
No veggie purée is complete without the collagen packed + flavorful goodness of bone broth. Bone-broth just makes
