Any dog owner wants their pet to be as happy and as healthy as possible. For that reason, you of course want to make sure they’re getting the very best diet.
In human terms, that means getting as many vitamins and minerals as possible. If you want to make sure your children are enjoying the healthiest diet, then you get them to eat fruits and vegetables.
But with dogs it’s different. Dogs are smaller than us, and they have different dietary requirements. When it comes to fruit, those different dietary requirements are specifically relating to their smaller stature. That’s because the amount of sugar in a piece of fruit is proportionately much larger for a dog as compared with a human.
And as you might know, consuming too much sugar is seriously bad news for a dog and can cause diabetes if not death. This is why it’s soimportant that you don’t let a dog eat a box of human chocolates.
But that’s not to say that there aren’t certain fruits and vegetables that your dog can eat. And by knowing which ones are safe and how to feed them to your dog, you can ensure that they get a balanced nutritious diet of fresh fruit, without risking their health.
