    apple?

    Has anyone tried just baking cut up apples in the oven? I have tried baking sweet potatoes in the oven and they love them!

    I have not. Mine will eat raw apples, they LOVE raw apples, but are not keen on raw sweet potatoes. They do like some good baked or dehydrated sweet potato though! Anything they will eat raw I do not bother cooking but if it's safe for them and already cooked, I let them eat that also.

It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born.

    LOL, if I bake an apple it's going to be for me, stuffed with butter, brown sugar and served with vanilla ice cream. I love my dog but all that butter, brown sugar and ice cream isn't good for him, he can eat his raw.

    Sweet potato, baked, is one of the foods we used during a serious illness with month and half long diarrhoea. Sweet Potato has about 6 times the fibre as an equal amount of pumpkin so be careful how much you give. Fibre can bind up or loosen.

    Same there, no apple gets past the cutting up stage with Mardi and Archie around. They love them raw. The baked sweet potato they get is what is left over from my plate; I can never finish an entire one. I don't purposely slice and bake them for the dogs.

    I have never baked apple either, I am not sure I would get passed the cut up stage with my 2, lol! I do dehydrate sweet potatoes, mine will not really eat them raw. (Maxx will, he will eat anything really but definitely not Emma!)

    Ha ha yes! Maverick hates carrots and spits them out. The apples he likes, but only if they don't have the skin.
