A couple of years ago my Boxer was overweight( she will eat anything
that does not eat her first!) I needed to put her on a diet, but did not
want her to go hungry, my vet suggested Green Beans. I cut back on her
food and added a can of green beans to her dinner. She lost weight and
did not go hungry. Beans have very little calories, but add the bulk to
the food. They also add vitamins to the dogs diet. You must rinse them
well first as they do not need the added salt in their diet.
