Apples are naturally healthy for dogs and serve as a healthy treat.Apples contain lots of fiber and Vitamin C, which is incredibly good for a dog’s immune system & bone and joint health .Top off treats by adding a few spoonfuls of ¬†applesauce.Freeze applesauce inside a Kong and watch your furry-best friend enjoy.Great for teething pups!



Like apples, pears are a great source of fiber.Pectin keeps your dog’s intestines healthy.Pears also contain Vitamin C, which plays an important role in antioxidant protection in a dog’s body ,as well as potassium, which helps in muscle contraction and nerve transmission.Great given as a slice or pureed with yogurt and given as a smoothie.Add some Omega’s and Spirulina and it makes for a super healthy doggie smoothie!
