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. One of the most commonly questioned foods is watermelon, so is it safe for dogs?

Is watermelon safe for dogs?

The answer is yes; watermelon is safe for dogs, so long as you take a few precautions. Watermelon seeds can cause intestinal issues or blockages, so remove them before feeding them to Fido. Plus, the rind might make your dog feel sick, so remove that, too. But watermelon is full of nutrients and water, so it’s a healthy snack for a hot day.

Overall, watermelon is a safe treat that dogs can enjoy with their owners.
