5 Exotic Fruits Your Pet Can Eat Safely

While your canine friend enjoys our dog boarding service, he will sample a variety of healthy treats. Dogs love sweets, and there are several exotic fruits safe for dogs to consume. These five exotic fruits are packed with nutrients, and they are canine approved.

Mangoes are a delicious tropical fruit. Dogs can safely enjoy the skin of this fruit. Your dog could choke on a mango seed, so you should always peel the fruit before giving it to your dog.

Apricots can also safely be eaten by dogs. If you are going to feed your dog apricots, you need to remove the seed. Also, you should not let your dog overindulge on apricots. The seeds contain a small amount of cyanide. The cyanide is only harmful if eaten in large portions.

Cantaloupes are packed with nutrients. They are healthy treats for humans and dogs. Dogs cannot choke on the seeds, and the fruit does not cause digestion problems. In addition to being a tasty treat, eating cantaloupes can improve your dog’s vision.

Papayas are another healthy treat for canines. Like similar fruits, the seeds should not be ingested. Papaya seeds can cause intestinal blockage, and the seeds contain trace amounts of cyanide. Chop the fruit into large pieces before serving it to your dog.

Canines can eat boysenberries. Boysenberry seeds will not cause digestion problems, but large quantities of the fruit can cause diarrhea. Therefore, dogs should eat the berries in moderation.

If you have any concerns about your dog’s meals, we urge you to contact us. We are happy to provide you with details on our menu items. At our dog boarding service, the health of your furry friend is always our highest priority.
