Apples are a great healthy alternative to regular dog treats. They are full of fibre which assists with your dog’s digestion as well as Vitamin A and C which help obtain great K9 health! Apples can also help remove residue from your dog’s teeth which helps with the bad breath and overall mouth health. Please be careful to give your dog apples in moderation and make sure to remove the seeds as they can be harmful to your furbaby.
Cucumbers are packed with nutrients like potassium, copper and magnesium which are all vital in keeping your dog happy and healthy. They also have a high water content so a great option for hot summer days to keep your furfriend hydrated.
