You may find them sometimes used in salads, stir fries and more. Pea shoots are packed with nutrients including vitamins A, B6, C, E & K, folate and more.

Can my dog eat pea sprouts? Yes! Can my puppy eat pea sprouts? Yes, again! Sprouts are an inexpensive way to add some fiber and nutrients to your dog’s diet.
