Fruits you can feed your dog
Tempted to share a healthy snack with your dog?
Here’s a list of fruits you both could munch on, together.
Apples: Apples are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your dog.
Bananas: They are a great low-calorie treat for dogs. They are low in cholesterol and sodium, but because of their high sugar content, bananas should be given as a treat, not part of your dog’s main diet.
Blueberries are a superfood packed with fiber and phytochemicals, rich in antioxidants, and prevent cell damage in humans and canines alike.
Cantaloupe is low in calories, full of nutrients and a great source of water and fiber for dogs. However, it’s high in sugar and should be shared in moderation, especially for dogs who are overweight or have diabetes.
Mango: This sweet summer treat is loaded with vitamins A, B6, C, and E. also high in sugar, so use it as an occasional treat.
Raspberries are low in sugar and calories, but high in fiber, manganese, and vitamin C. They contain antioxidants that are great, especially for senior dogs because they have anti-inflammatory properties.
Strawberries are full of fiber and vitamin C. They also contain an enzyme that can help whiten your dog’s teeth.
- Watermelon: Watermelon is 92% water and full of vitamin A, B-6, and C, as well as potassium. Be mindful of removing the rind and seeds first.
While offering any of these fruits to your dog, make sure you:
- Take the peel off and deseed the fruit
- Provide all these items in moderation as they are sweet and serve as treats
- Keep in mind about your dog’s health conditions and allergies, if any
