Can Dogs Eat Guava?

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. Guava is a sweet, vibrant, and juicy fruit that can sweeten any meal. But is this tropical fruit safe for dogs to eat?

Is guava safe for dogs?

Yes, guava is safe for dogs to eat in moderation. They’re packed full of Vitamin C, Iron, and Potassium, all of which your dog needs to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Though guava has a high sugar content, so it should not be given to your dog in excess to prevent weight gain.

Are there any risks?

While guava is generally an easy-to-eat fruit for dogs, the seeds and rind could pose potential choking hazards, so you should avoid feeding those to Fido. As always, chop the fruit into small pieces (especially if you have a small dog) and monitor their reaction to it after eating. If you notice your dog experiencing an allergic reaction, be sure to call your vet right away.

Overall, guava is a safe fruit to feed your pup, so long as you take the proper precautions before giving it to them.
