Fruits and vegetables are not just foods for humans—your dog can consume them too! Although there are well-known fruits and vegetables that dogs should stay away from (grapes, onion, garlic, etc.), there are plenty of other fruits and vegetables that your dog can consume, and probably love! And the best part: there are so many added benefits of including fruits and veggies into your dog’s diet! Below is a list of a few of fruits and veggies that your dog can consume, and their added benefits.
Apples are a great source of fiber and vitamin C, and they can also help clean your dog's teeth. However, it's important to remove the core and seeds as they contain cyanide, which can be harmful to dogs.
Blueberries are a great source of antioxidants and can help prevent inflammation. They are also low in calories and high in fiber, making them a great snack option for dogs.
Broccoli is considered a healthy food for dogs due to its nutritional content. It is a good source of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, fiber, and folate.
Lastly, sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber and vitamin A, and they can also help regulate your dog's digestive system.
If you’re thinking about giving your dog fruits and veggies, be sure to consult with your veterinarian and check to make sure that the fruit and/or vegetables are safe for your dog!
