Fruits and Vegetables in your dog's diet.

Many dog owners underestimate the value and real importance of fruits and vegetables in dog's diet. Of course, many premium dog foods actually contain fruits and vegetables, and some of them are healthy.

However, we recommend you to follow these steps and to feed your dog fruits and vegetables.

  • If you can afford quality and well-balanced diet for your dog we recommend to add fresh or frozen blueberries to your dog's food. These berries have antioxidants, which will make the aging process slower and lessen the chances of getting cancer, cardiovascular disease and other chronic degenerative conditions.
  • You dog should also eat apples and mangoes. You can either slice fruits or make puree of them. The best way is the way your dog prefers.
  • Carrots and zucchini are rich with vitamins that will positively affect your dog's general condition. It is better to serve these vegetables raw before serving grate them finely to make them easier to digest. You can also boil vegetables but you should know that some part of vitamins and other nutrients will be lost during boiling process.
  • If your pet is prone to constipation you may try pumpkin. Both canned or fresh pumpkin will be good.
  • White or sweet potatoes are tasty source of carbohydrate for your dog. Smashed potatoes tastes incredibly good.
  • Make green leafy vegetables like spinach or cabbage part of your dog's diet. These vegetables provide important nutrients for dogs.
  • For your dog's immune system to stay strong your dog should consume a little orange or grapefruit. These fruits are sweet and contain vitamin C. Remember! Vitamin C is not recommended for Bullmastiff as a supplement. Hypervitaminosis with C- vitamin is very dangerous for this kind of breed. So one orange or grapefruit once in two days will be enough.

Please remember!
  • It is nor recommended to give fruit seeds to your dog, since they can be toxic.
  • When considering dog's diet the golden mean is desirable. Try to give your dog fruits and vegetables in small amounts. Too many fruits and vegetables can cause your dog to have diarrhea.
