How to feed apples to your dog safely and comfortably

Dogs will love apples, just like humans! And while they may enjoy biting into a tart apple, most dogs will not eat raw apples. Here are three ways to feed apples to your dog safely and comfortably:

1. Cooked apples: Boil or bake an apple until it is soft. Let the dog eat the cooked apple as a treat or as part of their regular diet. Be sure to keep an eye on their Veterinary Check-Up appointment to make sure that they are getting the right amount of nutrients and fiber from the apple.

2. Apple sauce: Save apple cores and juices after you have cooked your apples. Pour them into a pot and add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or any other spices that your dog might enjoy. Cook the sauce until it is thickened and serve it warm or cold.

3. Applesauce: Applesauce can be served cold or heated up in the microwave or oven. Serve it with a dollop of natural yoghurt or cottage cheese for added calcium and protein.

What other fruits or vegetables can dogs eat?

Although apple consumption is typically discouraged for dogs due to the high level of toxins found in the fruit, there are other fruits and vegetables that can be safely consumed by canines. Some examples include oranges, grapefruit, strawberries, sweet potatoes, and peas. Dogs should avoid consuming avocado, apricots, cantaloupe, corn on the cob, grapes, honeydews, kiwis, mangos, papayas, pineapples, pumpkins, rhubarb and spinach.

Conclusion

There is some debate on whether or not dogs should be eating apples. Some people believe that apples are toxic to dogs, while others believe that the apple peel and other ingredients in an apple can be fed to a dog in small amounts with no ill effects. If you're unsure if your dog can eat apples, it's best to err on the side of caution and avoid giving them any.
