13 Fruits For Dogs And Their Benefits

People love fruit and we know bananas and strawberries are great for us, but did you know they are good for your dogs as well?

Take a look at this list of 13 fruits for dogs and their benefits:

  • Apples: Rich in potassium, fiber, phytonutrients, flavonoids, vitamin C.
  • Bananas: Full of potassium and carbohydrates.

Here’s Happy, The Pug, eating a banana:

  • Blueberries: Loaded with antioxidants, selenium, zinc and iron. High in vitamins C, E, A and B complex.
  • Blackberries: Abundant in antioxidants, polyphenols, tannin, fiber, manganese, folate, omega-3. High in vitamins C, K, A and E.
  • Raspberries: High in dietary fiber, antioxidants, potassium, manganese, copper, iron, magnesium. Also source of vitamin C, K and B-complex.
  • Cranberries: Rich in vitamin C, fiber and manganese. Helps deal with urinary tract infections, as well as balances acid-base in dog’s body.
  • Strawberries: Full of fiber, potassium, magnesium, iodine, folic acid, omega-3 fats, vitamins C, K, B1 and B6.
  • Kiwis: Loaded with fiber, potassium and high in vitamin C.
  • Pears: Loaded in fiber, folic acid, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, copper, pectin and vitamins A, C, E, B1 and B2.
  • Watermelon: Abundant with vitamins C and A, potassium, magnesium and water. Do not feed your dog the seeds or rind.
  • Cantaloupe: Rich in vitamins A, B complex, C, plus fiber, beta-carotene, potassium, magnesium, thiamine, niacin, pantothenic acid and folic acid.
  • Oranges: Full of fiber, potassium, calcium, folic acid, iron, flavonoids, phytonutrients, vitamins A, C, B1 and B6. Do no feed your dog any part of the orange tree-see below.
  • Pumpkin: Loaded with fiber, beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, zinc, iron, potassium and Vitamin A. Note: Even though you can feed your dog pumpkin seeds, most recommend feeding them to dogs unsalted, roasted and then grounded. Do not feed your dog any other part of the pumpkin due to the small, sharp hairs on the pumpkin stem and leaves.
