#6 – Blueberries
Blueberries for dogs have high levels of resveratrol with anti-cancer and heart disease fighting qualities. They make a great option for your dog’s diet. As an added bonus, the tannins found in blueberries also help prevent urinary tract infections. We wouldn’t recommend giving your dog a whole bowl of them, but a few here and there are more than acceptable, as long as the dog likes them!
#7 – Watermelons
Watermelons for dogs: If it’s lycopene that you’re looking to add to your dog’s diet, watermelon is your best source. The health benefits don’t stop there, though. Give your pooch a piece of this delicious summer treat and you’ll be loading him with up with tons of healthy vitamin A, B-6 and C, as well as thiamin.
#8 – Asparagus
When cut into bite size pieces, asparagus for dogs makes a healthy veggie option because of vitamin K, A, B1, B2, C and E, along with the folate, iron, copper, fiber, manganese and potassium that’s found in them.
#9 – Apples
Apple for Dogs: Besides the fact that it’s super fun to watch a dog eat an apple, the powerful antioxidants and loads of vitamin C will do wonders for your dog’s diet, as well.
However, make sure to avoid giving your dog the core of the apples as they are toxic to dogs. The core of an apple (as well as plums, peaches, pears and apricots) contain cyanogenic glycosides which is also known as cyanide which can cause dizziness, struggling to breath, seizures, collapsing, hyperventilation, shock and even coma. So make sure to never leave apple cores laying around for dogs to get their paws on.
#10 – Brussels Sprouts
Brussels Sprouts for Dogs: Maybe if your kid sees your dog eating her brussels sprouts, she’ll hop on board and eat them, too. And your dog should be eating brussels sprouts for their vitamins K and G, manganese, folate, fiber, potassium and vitamins A, B1 and B6.
