5 Fruits Dogs CAN Eat

Dogs love to beg for food, and sometimes it is difficult to resist the puppy eyes. If you decide to give them a bite or two, make sure it is safe for them to eat. They digest food differently than we do and eating foods they shouldn't, can lead to health problems, even long-term. Because every dog is different, consult with your veterinarian about what they can eat and the amount. 

  1. Apples

Apples are a great source of vitamin C and potassium contents! Dogs shouldn’t eat the seeds because they contain a small amount of cyanide, which is a toxin that can harm your dog, and they can easily choke on the core. 

  1. Bananas

Bananas are great ingredients for many homemade treats, whether it’s baked or frozen- for summer. A common pairing is with peanut butter but ensure that it doesn’t contain xylitol. They are filled with vitamins (B6 and C) and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, and zinc. 

  1. Blueberries

Aka antioxidant superfood is loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and phytochemicals. They make great treats, so if you are planning to teach your dog something new and simple blueberries can be it. Just make sure that you are not giving your dog too much, even though these fruits are safe to eat, they can have an upset stomach if they consume more than needed. 

  1. Strawberry 

Who doesn’t love strawberries on a warm summer day?! Wash and trim of the stem of the strawberry. If your dog is small or a puppy, cut the strawberry into smaller pieces or mash them to make it easier for them to eat. Cut the berry in half or serve it whole for larger dogs.

  1. Mangos

It is a punchy treat that your dog won’t be able to resist, which is high in vitamins and minerals! Peel and remove the pit of the mango because it can be a choking hazard and it contains cyanide, which is toxic to dogs.
