Question: Can dogs eat Lima beans?

Answer From the Editors at Dog-Spoiling

Yes, dogs can certainly eat lima beans as well as other types of beans.

Beans provide a considerable amount of protein. To give you an idea, soybeans provide almost 10 grams per ounce, while lima beans have a little over 5 grams per ounce.

Lentils on the other hand have about 7 grams per ounce and these can also be sprouted from seeds.

Beans also provide a significant amount of fiber and are probably best cooked and even pureed.

We hope this information has been of help to you and others.

Cooked up some mixed veggies that included Lima beans which I hate lol. Fed some to my german shepherd on top of her regular dry food and she loved them!! Left her very gassy though, but I'll keep giving them to her as long as they are healthy for her.

Both my English setter and rescue Bichon Frise love lima beans ! Had them for the first time tonight will see how they do. They would have eaten the whole bowl if i let them!

My dog loves them too. But they pass through him whole, so we mashed them and still see them in his stools. I then pureed them and am not sure he gets nutrients from them as his stools are so frequent and large. He is on a vegetable diet due to food allergies.
