We know fruits and vegetables are packed with healthy vitamins and minerals. We know they perform wonders for the body. But do they offer the same benefits to our dogs?
Certain fruits and vegetables are definitely more suitable for dogs than others. (And some should absolutely be avoided—a few of those are mentioned here.) Research is mixed as to whether your dog needs veggies and fruits, but some promising studies have shown that supplementing with certain vegetables, in particular, is good for your dog. This study showed a reduced rate of cancer in Scottish terriers that ate leafy greens three times a week, for instance.
We’ve put together a list of the best, most nutritious and suitable fruits and veggies for your pet. These can help with stomach upset, freshen the breath, boost immune and heart health, and tidy up the digestive tract.
