Can Dogs Eat Pears?

The short answer: Yes.

The long answer: Pears are packed with vitamins (A, C, and K) and minerals (potassium, calcium, and iron). The good news is that your dog can enjoy occasional servings of chopped pieces of ripe pear! Thanks to its high water content, this crunchy and juicy fruit is also a hydrating treat.

How to feed pears to your dog: Wash the pear to eliminate dirt or chemicals that may be found on its skin. Take out the core and seeds to prevent choking and poisoning caused by the harmful toxin, cyanide. Slice the pear into bite-sized chunks before serving it to your dog. To aid with digestion, leave the skin on, as it has the highest amount of fiber.

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

  1. Chill some pear slices, then serve these to your pup after a run at the park!
  2. Bake a batch of pear and molasses dog biscuits for special events.
  3. Grain-free and egg-free coconut and pear cookies sound like a delicious tropical treat too!

In summary: Your dog will definitely enjoy snacking on pears. Hand him small amounts of this naturally sweet fruit when it’s in season. Discover which other fruits dogs can safely eat in our “can dogs eat” category.
