Can Dogs Eat Apples?

Yes, dogs can eat apples, but with some considerations.

The long answer: Dogs can eat apples, but only without any seeds. Be sure to remove the core completely before letting your dog eat apples.

How to feed apples to your dog: Remove the seeds and slice apples carefully, making sure no seeds made their way into the bowl.

Here are three ideas for apple treats your dog will love:

  1. Apple slices with unsalted peanut butter to give your dog that buttery goodness along with some fibre and vitamin crunch.
  2. Apple cubes with carrots and broccoli for a nice little nutrient packed bowl of goodness.
  3. Apple pureed with sweet potato for a smooth lick-able treat for training eager puppies.

In summary: Apples are a great source of nutrients but you need to be aware of exactly which bits of it your pooch is chomping. Do not give your dog the entire apple, as this will—over time—create a cyanide build up due to seed consumption. As long as you’re careful, apples are a great source of nutrient dense treats for your dog. Aside from apples, discover which other fruits dogs can safely enjoy in our “can dogs eat” category.
