Dogs Can Eat Runner Beans (Green Beans) in Moderation
It’s safe for dogs to eat runner beans (green beans) as long as it’s in moderation. Adding a small amount of runner beans to your dog’s diet could be beneficial in a number of ways. These beans contain a relatively low number of calories and are packed with nutrients like calcium, potassium, and vitamin K.
They can be served raw and cooked although we think the latter is a better option for dogs. When you cook the runner beans, we would suggest using methods like steaming or roasting. The most important thing is to serve the runner beans plain. Don’t add extra salt, seasonings, or ingredients that may potentially be harmful to dogs.
In addition to cooking the runner beans, we would also recommend having them chopped in tiny pieces. The tough, fibrous texture of the runner bean could be a little difficult to digest for some dogs if they are swallowing it in large pieces.
