10 Foods that are Good for Your Dog

            So, last week was all about foods that you should never feed your dog under any circumstances. This week, I decided to switch it up with foods that are great for your furry friend’s health and can actually benefit them.

  1. Cashews

Cashews contain antioxidants, protein, calcium, and magnesium. However, they can also lead to weight gain so make sure to feed your pup cashews in moderation.

  1. Coconuts

Coconuts are great for your furry friends because they help to combat bacteria and viruses, as well as preventing bad breath and certain skin conditions like fleas and hot spots. Just make sure that you do not feed them the furry shell, since it can get stuck in their throat and cause choking.

  1. Eggs

Eggs are a great source of protein and can help to soothe an upset stomach.

  1. Fish

Fish is a good source of amino acids, which help with building muscle and boosting immunity. Sardines and salmon are the best sources of amino acids.

  1. Honey

Honey has vitamin A, B, C, D, E, and K, as well as helping to combat against allergies since the pollen helps to build immunity against allergens in the environment. Honey also has antioxidants, copper, magnesium, potassium, and calcium.

  1. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is great for your furry friend because it contains lots of protein, vitamins B, E, and niacin. However, you should make sure that the peanut butter does not contain xylitol, which is toxic for your pup.

  1. Carrots

Carrots are a great source of fiber, minerals, and vitamin C. Just make sure to cut them into bite-sized pieces to prevent choking.

  1. Blueberries

Blueberries also contain a lot of fiber, as well as antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. They are great for preventing illness.

Watermelon is also a good source of a vitamins A and C, just take care to remove the seeds and rind, since they can cause digestive problems and a choking hazard.
