The benefits of fruit and veg don’t just apply to humans. And now that summer has arrived, there’s no better time to start introducing them into his diet.
5-a-day might be a stretch too far, but giving your dog a bit of fruit and veg contributes wonderfully to a healthy, balanced diet. They are low in calories, low in fat and packed full of important vitamin and minerals, making a great alternative to manufactured dog biscuits.
Here are 11 types of fruit and veg that will promote your dog’s health and happiness this summer!
11- Cantaloupe melon
You can find cantaloupe melon all over the place now that summer’s in full swing, and what better treat to give to your pet? This juicy fruit has anti-inflammatory qualities, as well as being a great source of vitamins, potassium, magnesium and folic acid. The perfect snack to share with your pooch!
10- Frozen banana
Full of fibre and minerals, they are the perfect treat. Frozen banana is even better for cooling your dog down on a balmy summer day! Be careful not to give your dog too much though, as this could cause constipation.
