5 Fall Foods To Share With Your Dog

by vomkompass

With the early release of the pumpkin spice latte (PSL), fall is coming faster than ever. Though your dog can’t enjoy a PSL, there are other fall foods that are okay to share with them.

The following fruits and vegetables are considered in season for fall according to this site

. Of course there are many more produce items on the list, but these fives are the best ones to share with your dog:

1. Apples
Apples are a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. Feel free to leave the skin on too; it’s full of plant chemicals that are thought to be cancer-fighting. The only part of the apple your dog can’t have is the core, which has seeds containing cyanide. They are only toxic in large amounts, so if they happen to eat a few, there’s no need to panic.

2. Beets
Beets are packed with nutrition including vitamins A, B, C, iron, potassium, and magnesium, among other vitamins and minerals. If your dog has liver issues, beets are particularly beneficial because of their detoxifying qualities.

3. Cranberries
Cranberries are rich with vitamins A, B1, B2, and C. They also promote urinary tract health, helping prevent UTIs. Too many cranberries could make your dog gassy, so only allow them to be eaten in moderation.

4. Green beans
Green beans are filling and low in calories. In fact, they’re often fed to dogs as a main component in their diet to help with weight loss.

5. Pumpkin
Pumpkin from the can is tasty and healthy, making it the ideal snack for your dog! It’s loaded with fiber and beta-carotene, and does wonders for the digestive system. If your dog is suffering from diarrhea or constipation, consider feeding them pumpkin.

Remember, human food is best shared with your dog in moderation! If you’re ever unsure of what people foods are okay to give your dog, hold off until you do your research.
