Fruits and Vegetables for Dogs

Fruits and vegetables play an important role in the human diet because of their high nutritional value in terms of vitamins, fiber and minerals.

These tasty and nutritious foods can also help improve your dog’s health by boosting his immune system, aiding digestion, reducing inflammation, and fighting obesity.

Feeding fresh food also allows you to control ingredients and portion sizes compared to commercial food. Before adding fresh foods to your dog’s menu, check out this list of fruits and vegetables that are safe for your dog.

Fruits

Apples: Apples are an excellent source of vitamins A and C and fiber, and are a refreshing treat. Just be sure to remove the stem, core, and seeds, as they are not safe for dogs.

Bananas: Rich in potassium, fiber, and magnesium, bananas also contain a lot of sugar, which gives them a sweet taste. Think of it as a special gift.

Blueberries: Rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients, blueberries are considered a superfood and can help fight cancer and repair cell damage.

Mango: Perfect for summer, mangoes are rich in vitamins A, B6, C and E, and also contain beta-carotene and alpha-carotene. Mangoes are also high in sugars, so it’s best to reserve them for special occasions.

Pineapple: Containing vitamins, folic acid and zinc, pineapple helps your dog’s digestion and supports the immune system. It also contains pineapple protease, a natural enzyme that breaks down meat, making it ideal for dogs with sensitive digestive systems.

Watermelon: Watermelon is 92% water and also contains vitamins A, B6 and 6 and potassium, making it an ideal food to keep your dog hydrated, especially on hot days.
