Fruit for Thought

I love giving Benny scraps of my food. Whatever I am eating I am always guilty of giving him a piece of what I have (if its safe). With that being said I wanted to start giving him scraps of healthy snacks as I would like to keep my Benny healthy for many years to come as well as myself! Summer is coming and I want to look beach ready ūüôā As I was having my after workout fruit, Benny was staring at me with those big brown eyes and was drooling to the floor. So I¬†figured I would do some research and find out what fruit I would be allowed to feed my handsome friend. What I found was that most fruits are super healthy for Boxer Dogs!¬†Lately, I have been mixing some fruit into his diet as well as letting him sneak pieces of steak under the table. Here is a list of fruits your boxer will love and thank you for without them knowing you are doing something good for them. Also, fruits to avoid giving your furry friend. Try mixing in a few training exercises and use the fruit as a reward. These fruits are okay to give your Boxer¬†in moderation.

Bananas*, Cantaloupe, Mango, Pears, Watermelon, Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Oranges

*Do not give to Boxers with Addison’s disease or kidney disease.


Fruits to avoid for your Boxer:

Avocado, Grapes and Raisins, Cherries.
