Fruits and Vegetables you can feed your dog!

Fruits and Vegetables you can feed your dog! - Captain Zack

Consider feeding your dog a more nutritious diet this year! One simple dietary change can improve your dog’s health and wellness. Switch to all-natural fruit and vegetable treats. Commercially produced dog treats are often loaded with fat, sugar, preservatives, and artificial colourings and flavourings. Calorie-dense snacks can also cause your dog to put on excess weight.

Instead of treating your dog with over-processed, chemical-filled snacks reward them with healthy dog treats that have dried fruits and veggies. The fibre found in whole fruits and veggies can support your dog’s gastrointestinal health and help them maintain a healthy weight.

Dogs are omnivores. They thrive on a varied diet that includes fruits and vegetables. Here is a list of some of the best-dehydrated vegetables and freeze-dried fruits you can give as treats to your dog:

  • Green beans
  • Dehydrated Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Coconut 
  • Pineapple 
  • Mango 
  • Green Peas
  • Spinach

All of these fruits and vegetables are low calorie, nutrient-rich foods that can be easily chewed and digested. 

Any dog’s age and breed will influence its dietary needs. It is a good rule of thumb that if you are considering making any changes to your pet’s diet talk to your veterinarian first.

Your vet will be the best resource for information about your dog’s specific dietary needs. Here’s to a happy and healthy Year for you and your four-legged family members!
