Dogs do not need to eat fruit as they are carnivores. However, fruit can be given to your dog as treat occasionally.
Here are some fruits that are safe for dogs to eat:
Apples are great snacks for senior dogs as they are low in fat but high in fiber. Apples also help to clean residue off a dog’s teeth, which helps to freshen her breath.
Make sure to take out the seeds and the core before feeding to your dog, as these can be choking hazards, and more importantly, the apple cores (as well as cores of plums, peaches, pears and apricots) contain cyanogenic glycosides which is toxic for dogs.
Bananas can also be eaten by dogs in moderation. They are high in sugar which is why they should not be part of your dog's diet on a regular basis.
Blueberries are rich in antioxidants which are beneficial for humans and dogs. They also contain a lot of fiber and can be used as an alternative to store-bought treats.
Cantaloupe is a great source of water and fiber for dogs but it's high in sugar, so should be consumed in moderation.
Mangos are a great treat for dogs during warm weather as they are high in potassium and several essential vitamins. Don't forget to remove the pit before giving a mango to your dog as it could become a choking hazard.
