Summer fruits your dog will love!
To celebrate the release of our gorgeous new Malibu Toucan dog rashie, we’re dishing out our favourite summer fruits that your dog will love too!
Before we dive in, remember that fruit counts towards your dog's treat intake, which should be no more than 10% of your pup's daily diet.
It's no coincidence that our Malibu Toucan dog rashie features tropical pineapples – they are one of our favourite summer fruits! They're full of B-complex vitamins as well as vitamin C.
Fresh pineapple is a yummy summer snack for dogs, but only in small quantities (too much can cause digestive issues). Simply peel and core the pineapple, then chop it up into bite-sized pieces for your pup to snack on!
Try to limit pineapple snacks to only a few bites a day, and avoid canned or dried varieties. These can sometimes contain added sugars which aren't good for your pup.
Queensland produces approximately half of Australia's total mango production, so it's only natural that we're snacking on delicious mangos here at Snoot HQ! Mangos are an amazing source of vitamin C for your dog and also contain vitamin A.
Mango pits can be very dangerous if ingested, so remember to peel your mango and remove the pit before sharing with your pup. Freezing mango chunks is also a great way for your dog to cool down in summer. Simply pop them in the freezer for a few hours and watch your pup enjoy this sweet icy treat!
No list of summer fruits would be complete without juicy watermelon! Packed full of potassium, magnesium, and vitamins A and C, watermelon is a sweet and healthy treat for dogs. It also helps to keep your pup hydrated on hot and humid days as it's made up of around 92% water!
Watermelon rind can cause a tummy upset, so make sure you remove it first. Also try to remove as many of the seeds as possible as they can cause an intestinal blockage.
Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are popular summer snacks for dogs. These superfoods are bursting with antioxidants and are low in calories. You can feed them one-by-one or sprinkle some over your pup's dinner!
If you're looking for an extra special way to serve up some berries, be sure to check out our recipe for Yoghurt Pupsicles! They make a great summer treat to enjoy by the pool or at the beach, just remember to bring enough for all your pup's friends!
