Green cabbage: A nutrient-rich, leafy green veggie for your dog

It may come as a surprise to you, but the humble green cabbage is a superfood and super good for your dog.

A new addition to our ingredient line-up thanks to its inclusion in our Roo Bowl, green cabbage packs a punch when it comes to being a nutrient-rich option for your pup. A cruciferous vegetable that has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of any veggie, green cabbage is high in fibre and a good source of sulforaphane, a sulphur-rich compound that is known for its powerful heart health benefits and cancer-fighting properties.

A real all-rounder

Significant research has been conducted to determine the health benefits of green cabbage. Cruciferous vegetables are high in antioxidants and has been shown to help reduce the incidence of cancers in dogs. These antioxidants include vitamins C and K, as well as carotenoids and flavonoids such as anthocyanins and kaempferol. This type of vegetable protects cells against oxidative damage, and may therefore prevent other chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. 

Green cabbage is completely safe for your dog to eat, but it’s important they chow down in moderation to avoid any digestive issues and gassiness.
