As a dog parent, you’ve probably wondered, “what foods are safe for my dog?”. Luckily, many human foods are safe in moderation for dogs, and they can even make for a special treat for your furry friend. Apples are a healthy, crunchy snack that many love. But are they safe for dogs?

Are apples safe for dogs?

The answer is yes; apples are a safe and healthy snack for your furry friend(s). They are full of fiber which can aid in your dog’s digestion and keep them a healthy weight. Though, they are also high in sugar, so too much apple may have the opposite effect. In fact, many dog treats have apple flavoring added to them to help curve your dog’s sweet tooth.

How much apple can dogs eat?

While apples are healthy for dogs, too much could lead to some undesired effects such as a bellyache or diarrhea. When adding new foods to your dog’s diet, make sure to monitor for behavioral or digestive changes, and contact a veterinarian fi you have any concerns.

Overall, apples are safe and healthy treats for your pup to enjoy in moderation.
