    • I’ve been making a homemade dog food recipe with diced carrots and green peas but both my 3 year old German Shepherd and 9 year old Bassett Hound seem to be passing both the peas and carrots whole in their poop. Any suggestions for a better substitute since they don’t seem to be digesting them?
