Produce isn’t just for people! Some produce items are safe and healthy for dogs too (click here for a list of safe and unsafe produce items for dogs). Sweet potatoes are a great source of Vitamin A, which can benefit your pup’s coat, skin, eyes, and muscles. They’re also a good source of fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, and Vitamin C. It’s no wonder sweet potatoes are a common ingredient found in dog food.
