Pregnant dog eats vegetables
Our five weeks pregnant spaniel has developed a taste for (raw) vegetables and will eat almost anything. She' s been seen to devour radishes, tomatoes, baby marrows, asparagus and peas. Is this okay, and does it mean her diet needs supplementation? (She is fed standard adult dog food obtainable only from a vet.)

Dear Niki

The veggies are fine but increase her normal food intake a bit and remember to feed her as much as she wants after the puppies are born. It may be worth worming her as well.
