One of the best and worst things in the world? Puppy eyes! And yes, we mostly cave in. It's hard to say no to such cute dog expression. But we must be careful... When they are craving what we are eating, especially when we are eating fruits or sweets, it can get dangerous. Some fruits are actually toxic, and your dog could be allergic to them. Please watch out for your dog's health. Your dog is what he/ she eats too. Here is a list of fruits your dog can eat and should not eat:
Fruits dogs can eat:
1.Apples - Great source of vitamins and low-fat! Keeps your doggie's teeth clean, and it's super healthy. Just remember to remove the seeds, the one thing that is toxic about apples.
2.Blueberries - Rich in antioxidants, which prevent cell damage in humans and dogs! Why not play catch with some sweet berries? Be careful with your carpet, recommended for hardwood floors.
3.Oranges - Healthy, full of vitamins, but be careful don't feed them the peel or the seeds. A little citrus doesn’t hurt anybody!
4.Pear - High source of copper, vitamins C and K, and fiber! What big party of strength! Your dog’s health will love pears.
5.Mango - Contains vitamins A, B6, C, and E, potassium. Not to mention is so sweet, colorful, and juicy. Your dog can be tropical too!
Fruits dogs cannot eat:
1. Grapes - Does not go well with your dog's stomach. Grapes are toxic and could cause kidney failure. Don't fall for the puppy eyes; your dog will always try. What you are eating is always yummy, even if it harms them.
2. Avocado - Can be healthy for humans, but a terrible idea for dogs. Avocados contain persin, which causes vomiting, and diarrhea for dogs! Keep all the delicious avocados for yourself. In this case, resisting sharing means caring.
3. Cherries - Contain cyanide, which disrupts oxygen, so blood cells don't get enough oxygen. This doesn't sound like a good idea for your dog's health.
4. Raisins - Similar to grapes they cause kidney failure, also vomiting and diarrhea. The toxicity level of raisins is acute. If your dog eats them by mistake, please call a veterinarian as soon as possible.
5.Tomatoes - Contain solanine a toxic substance for your dog. It's best to keep them to yourself; you can always make more pasta sauce for your spaghetti.
Hope you and your dog have a fruitful day! It always feels the best to stay healthy and connected to your body. If your dog ate any toxic fruits, contact a vet right away.
