    My friend asked me to create a new thread because she couldn't find a suitable thread about this subject. She would like to know what kind of fruits can be given to dogs. She has found more information on that what can not be given to them. So my friend has couple questions about this:

    1. A)
    Could you make a list of fruits that CAN be given to dogs?

    Which ones of them can be cut into this sized pieces? My friend thougt that she could use them as treats:

    Can you give dogs juice that is made of the fruits that can be given to them?

    My dogs LOVE bananas, blueberries, watermelon, and baby carrots. So do I lol so probably because that's what we share the most.

    Introducing new foods into her diet may cause upset stomach issues such as vomiting or diarrhea. Be cautious to introduce only one new fruit or vegetable at a time to help you spot any health changes. Too much of anything can be a bad thing. I've used cut green beans as training treats and that's worked really well for me.

    Be sure to wash all fruits & veggies and to remove rinds, inedible skins, seeds, and pits before feeding to pets.

    • Apple
    • Apricot
    • Banana
    • Blueberries
    • Cantaloupe
    • Mango
    • Orange
    • Pear
    • Pineapple
    • Raspberries
    • Strawberries
    • Watermelon

      ****Steer clear of: Grapes and raisins can cause kidney damage , so avoid feeding these entirely. Citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and grapefruit as well as persimmons can cause an upset stomach.

      And veggies:
    • Asparagus
    • Bell peppers (red, green, yellow)
    • Broccoli
    • Cabbage
    • Carrots
    • Cauliflower
    • Celery
    • Cucumber
    • Green beans
    • Lettuce
    • Pumpkin
    • Spinach
    • Sweet potato
    Consider steaming or boiling cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, as they are much easier to digest when they are cooked.

    Never feed your pet onions or garlic as they are toxic in all forms: cooked, raw, and even onion powder. These cause damage to the red blood cells, ultimately causing them to burst. Rhubarb and wild mushrooms also contain toxins.


    Im sure you could cut just about all of these to bite size. I'm not sure why you'd want to make fruit juice for a dog, though?

    1. Apples: Source for potassium, fiber, phytonutrients, flavonoids, vitamin C. Note: Do not give dogs the core or the seeds, which contain arsenic. (Half of an apple slice is a good size treat.)
    2. Bananas: Source of potassium and carbohydrates. (1 inch is a good size treat.)
    3. Kiwis: Source of fiber, potassium and high in vitamin C. (A half a slice or one slice of kiwi is a good size treat.)
