Exclamation Opinions on potato in vegetable mix! Please reply ASAP!

Hi everyone, I'm doing an online order to come into a P@H store for me and need it as soon as possible, so I'd really appreciate some quick opinions on this vegetable mix:

https://www.petsathome.com/shop/en/p...e-patch-snacks

I'm uncertain on potatoes and whether they're ok, and if so in what capacity, because my research has come up with conflicting opinions. Normally if I were unsure I'd just not feed them (pick them out of the bag), but my plan with this is to mix it into my homemade diet that I'm currently formulating - therefore, in order to be accurate with my nutritional calculations, I'd need to keep the potato in.

Yes or no?


Thank you so much! xxx

As far as I’m aware only cooked potato is safe and raw/dried potato should be avoided. It would be best to skip that mix all together than just cut out the potato. P@H do several other dried veg mixes though that are worth checking out.

I wouldn’t bother with it. Better just to give a bit of fresh veg . Other healthy treats/snacks are sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, linseeds, half a walnut, pecan or Brazil nut. The occasional blueberry or piece of apple or banana (for Syrians - not fruit for Russian dwarfs).

Thank you both! I ended up not ordering it and just getting some more dried beetroot & parsnip.
