Dogs love meat, that’s a pretty well-known fact, and dog food commercials certainly don’t squander the opportunity to remind us all that their brand contains the most “real meat.” But most dogs like eating a variety of things if they are ever given the opportunity to try them. Dogs like variety in their diet too, so it’s useful to keep in mind that things like fruits and vegetables can be beneficial for a dog’s health. The following fruit is a good starting point if your dog is not a veteran fruit eater.
This treat is probably something you are more likely to share with your dog if you happen to be eating it yourself, since it is not as easy as dropping a few blueberries on the floor for him to gobble up. Cantaloupe, like most fruit, is loaded with good vitamins and other nutrients that will benefit dogs just as they will benefit people. Cantaloupe has a good supply of vitamin A, which is known to promote good eyesight. It is also good for reducing the incidence of cell damage which can reduce the risk from cancer. B vitamins as well as vitamin C are also found in cantaloupe and can also reduce cancer risk. Cantaloupe is probably a safe choice for the majority of dogs because allergic reactions to it are uncommon.
