Fruits and vegetables are typically a healthy addition to any human diet. However, this is not always the case for animals. Pet owners often like to feed their dogs scraps from the table or use human food as treats. While some fruits and vegetables are safe for your Dances with Wolves Ranch puppy, others can be harmful. Dogs have different digestive systems than humans and you need to be careful with the fruits and vegetables you offer your pet. This is especially true for puppies who have even more sensitive stomachs and can suffer long-term health consequences from eating the wrong foods.

NEVER foods:

Asparagus, Avocado, Cherries, Grapefruit, Grapes, Lemons, Limes, Mushrooms, Onions, Plums, Tomatoes, Dates, Figs, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Bell Peppers

CAREFUL foods:

These are foods that can be dangerous due to the seeds, pits, or high sugar content, so they should be given with caution. If your Dances with Wolves Ranch dog is overweight or diabetic, avoid the sugary fruits.

Apples (NO SEEDS), Apricots (no pit), Coconut (no husk), Mango (no core), Nectarine (no pit), Raspberries (limited amount), Spinach (limited amount), Watermelon (no seeds or rind), Blackberries (not too many), Oranges (no skin or seeds) Peaches (no pit),

Okay to eat:

Bananas, Blueberries, Cantaloupe, Cranberries, Honeydew, Kiwi, Pears, Pineapple, Raspberries, Strawberries, Tangerines, Cucumber, Strawberries, Celery, Green Beans, Peas

Err on the Side of Caution

Here are some things to keep in mind: this is not an exhaustive list and each dog is different. If you are not sure about the safety of a particular food or if your dog tends to have a sensitive stomach, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. A good rule of thumb is that anything that humans typically don’t eat, dogs also shouldn’t eat. For example, the skin, seeds, or the pit of any fruit. It’s also important to remember that dogs are carnivores and don’t actually need fruits in their diet. While the occasional fruit is okay, it’s best if fruits and vegetables never make up more than 10% of your dog’s diet.
