Can dogs eat apples? It doesn't matter if your dog is eating a green apple or the apple skin. You might have a chihuahua or pitbull and you want to know if it is ok to give them an apple. Yes, in short, it is ok to give your dog apple. Many dogs of all breeds love apples. This is great because apples can be a super healthy treat.

Best Ways for Your Dog To Eat Apples

There are many different ways you can get your dog eating apples; you can serve it as a frozen treat (great for teething puppies), you can wedge the apple slice it into a Kong, you can make apple pops with apple sauce and greek yogurt, or even serve it grated as a dinner topping. Try to avoid feeding your dog large amounts of apple cores because they contain seeds and stems. Apple seeds have cyanogenic glycosides which can cause tummy upset and more serious problems if consumed in large quantities. If you are feeding your dog dehydrated apples be cautious. Dehydrated apples contain all of the nutrients of the hydrated ones but they have no water, so only feed little bits of dried apple to prevent tummy upset.
