Pups seem to love human foods, but not all of them are good for a dog’s stomach! Luckily, there are actually a number of human snacks that can be eaten and enjoyed by pups. Fruits and vegetables make healthy snacks to share with your pups – here are some to try out!
Rich in potassium and vitamin A, B6, and C, this makes a great refreshing snack for your pups! Just remove the rinds and seeds first.
Raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries are full of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Just limit consumption to only a few at a time, as some berries have a good deal of sugar in them and are best in small portions.
These fruits are full of potassium, biotin, fiber, copper, and vitamins and are easy to eat. However, they do have a lot of sugar, so don’t give your pup too much at a time!
These crunchy treats go great with peanut butter and give your pup vitamin A and C, as well as some fiber. Remember to only give slices, as the seeds are toxic to pups!
These crunchy veggies make great replacements for bagged dog treats due to their low calorie count, as well as their high fiber and beta carotene content. They can even help clean your pup’s teeth!
2. Potatoes (and sweet potatoes!)
Both of these should be served cooked and plain without added ingredients and are incredibly healthy. Sweet potatoes make especially healthy treats and their list of nutrients is endless!
These veggies have few calories, carbs, and sugar, so they’re a great weight-management snack to give your pups. In addition, they’re packed with vitamins, potassium, magnesium, copper, and biotin!
4. Green beans
In little bite-sized pieces, these can be great treats with a crunch and can be served, raw, cooked, and even frozen. They provide vitamins, manganese, and fiber. Talk about an easy, healthy snack!
Remember, as with everything else, moderation is key in these tasty treats. Feed your pup small amounts of each snack and you’ll have a happy, healthy dog! Like and share away!
