Is feeding the dog fruit equal to supplementing the dog with vitamins? Is it equivalent to adding nutrition to the dog? Can dogs eat fruit? What kind of fruit should dogs eat? In summer, people will eat chilled fruit to cool off the summer heat. When dogs look at you longingly, you may also give them some soft food. But in fact, is it really good for dogs to eat water? The following small series has compiled some questions about dogs eating fruit for parents' reference. < br> 1. Do dogs need fruit to supplement VC? < /strong>
No need. Dogs are basically carnivores, and a big difference from people is that they can synthesize vitamin C from the meat they eat, so if you give your dog fruit just to supplement VC, you don't have to give it to him. < br> 2. What are the advantages of dogs eating fruit? < /strong>
Personal feeling is to regulate gastrointestinal function. When the dog is constipated or has poor appetite, it can be properly adjusted with fruit. Because the cellulose and water in the fruit can enhance the gastrointestinal function, and the cool and sweet taste of the fruit can give the dog a good taste. < br> 3. What kind of fruit does the dog eat? < /strong>
You can give your dog some apples, pears, cherries, watermelons and peaches, or a small amount of bananas. Your dog's stomach varies from dog to dog. When you give your dog a fruit on a whim and find that it is diarrhea, don't give it any more. < br> 4. Two notes for feeding dogs fruits: < /strong>
1. Don't give dogs seeds or cores of fruits, such as pomegranates, lychees, apricots, plums, etc. If the seeds and cores of fruits with many seeds or large cores can't be removed, don't give them to dogs. Because it is impossible for a dog to chew these seeds or kernels, and its stomach can't digest them, there is no difference between a litchi kernel and a pebble in a dog's stomach. In addition, the seeds of some fruits contain toxic substances, which can be dissolved in gastric juice by dogs when chewed, which may kill dogs. Simply put: Fruit seeds or nuclear dogs are absolutely not to be eaten. < br> 2. Be sure not to give your dog too much fruit: giving your dog a lot of fruit at once can easily cause your dog to have diarrhea. Any kind of fruit is the same. < br> PS: Dried fruits: peanuts and chestnuts, which are delicious but easily chewed, should also control the dog's consumption. Eating too much at a time can also cause indigestion. Moreover, it is said that dried fruits (especially almonds) contain more phosphorus, which is easy to cause kidney calculi.
