While some human foods are perfectly safe for dogs,
others are very unhealthy and downright dangerous,
so it’s critical to learn which fruits and vegetables dogs can eat.
Dogs digest differently than humans do,
and eating the wrong foods can lead to health problems
Both fruits and veggies can be a great addition
to any dog diet but there are dangerous foods you need to avoid
A dogs diet should mainly consist of meat and fish .
Fruits, veggies and any other supplements
should be no more than 5 to 10% of it’s diet
When giving fruit to a dog
make sure to always remove the pit or seeds
and skip canned fruits and vegetables,
as canned fruits usually contain
high amounts of sugary syrups
and canned vegetables contain salts/sodium
Here are some
Fruits and vegetables
that you can give your dog
Apples are an excellent source
of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your dog.
They are low in protein and fat, making them
the perfect snack for overweight and senior dogs.
Just be sure to remove the core and seeds
before feeding an apple to your pet.
Banana’s are rich in potassium,
vitamins, fiber and copper,
bananas are exceptionally sweet,
and they’re also safe for your furbaby to eat.
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 full of antioxidants and fibers.
Blueberries are a superfood rich in antioxidants,
which prevent cell damage in humans and canines alike.
They are packed with fiber and phytochemicals as well.
And it is a fun treat to give as you can throw them in the air 😀
Broccoli is safe for your pet to eat,
but only in very small quantities,
as broccoli is fibrous and contains isothiocyanates,
which can cause mild to potentially severe
gastric irritation (diarrhea, gas)
Carrots are high in vitamins and fiber,
low in calories and their fibrous nature
can brush away tartar,
making them good for your dog’s teeth

that will naturally scrub your dog’s teeth.

is also known to freshen doggy breath

as they hold little to no carbohydrates, fats, or oils

and could potentially cause your dog to choke.

Pears are a great snack because they are high in copper,
vitamins C and K, and fiber.
Just be sure to first remove the pit and seeds
and cut the pear into bite size chunks
Pineapple is a healthy treat for dogs.

makes it easier for dogs to absorb proteins
