Can Dogs Eat Fruit?

All the following fruits are safe for your dog or cat to eat. However, be sure to wash all fruits and remove rinds, inedible skins, seeds, and pits before feeding to pets.

  • Apple - Apples are high in fiber and low in fat, making them the ideal snack for more senior pets who will have low metabolism. They're also packed with vitamins A and C which are essential for maintaining healthy bones and tissue. Feed your pet apples in moderation and remove the core and seeds first, as they contain cyanide.

  • Apricot

  • Banana

  • Blueberries

  • Cantaloupe

  • Cranberries

  • Mango

  • Orange

  • Pear

  • Pineapple

  • Raspberries - Raspberries are low in sugar and contain lots of fiber and vitamin C. Their anti-inflammatory properties make them great for older pets. However, they should be given in moderation as they contain small amounts of Xylitol, a sweetener which can be toxic to pets in large doses.

  • Strawberries

  • Watermelon - Watermelon is almost 92% water, so it is great for keeping your pet hydrated. It also contains Vitamins A, C, and B-6, as well as potassium which helps maintain healthy muscle and nerve function.

Steer clear of: Cherries are toxic to cats and dogs, and grapes and raisins can cause kidney damage. Citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and grapefruit as well as persimmons can cause an upset stomach.
