Benefits of Feeding Your Dog Apple

Many fruits and vegetables that are good for us can also be good for our pets. Apples are an economical and tasty snack, full of important nutrients, so you never have to feel guilty about giving into those puppy dog eyes. They are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K & fibre, as well as a wonderful teeth cleaner and breath freshener, helping to remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup.

    • High in Fibre – fibre aids in your dog’s digestion and improves colon health, as well as assists with weight management.
    • Vitamin A –  supports a healthy skin and coat and helps to strengthen your dog’s immune system and eye sight.
    • Vitamin K – apples have a large amount of vitamin K – an essential mineral that improves a dog’s blood health and liver.
    • Vitamin C – Apples are one of the best foods to contain large amounts of antioxidants like Vitamin C, which aids in the proper development of muscles and bones during the early stages of life – and don’t forget the amazing cancer-shielding properties!

Apples even contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids that can improve your dogs heart and brain functions. Essential fatty acids keep a dog’s coat shiny and may prevent skin allergies.

So it’s true what they say about an apple a day! Next time your having this tasty snack, make sure to offer a piece to your best bud. Just remember to cut away the core and seeds as these part of an apple shouldn’t be fed to your dog.
