vegetable type

Asked April 29, 2019, 11:07 AM EDT

Hello! I have a rough collie puppy. In doing research for a healthy diet, I found information that collies should eat "a diet that is rich that low growing ground type vegetables". I have tried researching and am having no luck finding a chart or any reference to what vegetables these would be. Could you please help? Thanks so much, Linda and Isla

Linda & Isla,
Thank you for reaching out to Ask an Expert! While there are many recommendations that you may find online that are breed specific, very few if any have actually been fully researched. Extension recommends selecting a complete balanced feed that can be found at local retailers. Please note that there are feeds available at various price points, which correlate to their overall quality. You should select a feed source that meets your puppies growth stage and nutritional requirements.
Please take a look at the following articles that will help you decide what is best for your dog:
