Which fruits are safe for dogs

For a healthy and balanced diet, dogs need a proper diet enriched with vitamins, fiber, and minerals. When choosing your pet's diet, you should always consult a veterinarian, as some animals are prone to allergic reactions or intolerance to certain foods.

In any case, when you give your dog new food, you should start with a small piece to see how the body reacts to it. Not everyone knows that certain types of fruit are good for dogs. Read the OBOZREVATEL article to find out which ones.

Raspberries

Raspberries have pronounced protective properties. They are useful for maintaining visual acuity and increasing the body's resistance to various types of infection. Raspberries can improve your pet's immunity.

Apple

Veterinarians say that dogs can be given an apple - in small quantities, of course. For a better effect, you can grate it with carrots. Dogs are rarely allergic to apples, and the beneficial vitamins and minerals will help maintain their immune system.

Strawberries

According to experts, strawberries are generally good for dogs because they contain vitamins C, K, B1, potassium, and magnesium. However, there have been cases of allergic reactions to the red berry. So, if you want to try giving your pet some strawberries, offer a tiny piece first to make sure there is no intolerance.

Pear

Pears are included in the list of hypoallergenic foods, so if your dog loves these fruits, you can safely give them to him. It is better to choose ripe, soft varieties.

Watermelon

You can give your dog a slice of watermelon if he asks for it. However, keep in mind that watermelon has a diuretic effect. In addition, you should never feed your dog watermelon rinds.

By the way, some dog breeds may be more prone to various diseases, especially due to genetics. Read the article to find out if it is true that large dogs are more likely to get cancer.
