Love sharing food with
your pet?  Certain summer fruits can be
good for dogs!  Here are a few good fruit
choices to feed to your pet!
Good Fruit Choices:
  • Bananas – Bananas are a great source
    of amino acids, electrolytes, minerals, and Vitamins B6 and C.
      However, bananas also have a moderately high
    sugar content.

    for working and athletic dogs that burn high amounts of energy.
  • Avocados – Although the pit of an avocado

  • Blueberries – Blueberries contain
    antioxidants, fiber and phytochemicals that can boost your dog’s health!
  • Strawberries – Strawberries are high
    in fiber and vitamin C.
      They also
    contain an enzyme that can help whiten your dog’s teeth.
      Just be careful and feed them in moderation –
    strawberries can be high in sugar.
  • Apples – Apples are full of fiber
    and vitamins.
      However, you don’t want to
    give your dog a whole apple.
      Slice it up
    first instead!
  • Cantaloupe – Cantaloupe have
    beta-carotene which can be good for your pet’s vision.
      Studies show that beta-carotene may even help
    prevent or reduce the growth of cataracts.
  • Watermelon – On hot days, the high
    fluid content in watermelon can help ward off dehydration!
While these fruits are
great choices for your pet, other fruits can make your pet feel sick.  Be sure to avoid feeding your dog grapes,
raisins, holly berries, cherries, juniper berries, baneberries, poke berries,
and mistletoe berries.  These fruits can
upset your dog’s stomach.
