The list of toxic foods includes things in your home, such as tomatoes, grapes, raisins, tea, coffee, etc. So, it’s a good idea to look a food item up before giving it to your furbaby.
In this blog post, we will answer the question, “Can dogs eat peaches?” in detail and help you figure things out.
Let’s get started!
Yes or No: Can Dogs Eat Peaches?
Yes, fresh and juicy peaches are safe for dogs to consume.
You don’t have to worry if your dog accidentally ate a peach. The fruit is an excellent source of fiber and Vitamin A, making it an excellent occasional treat. Don’t give them to your dog as a frequent snack as they may cause diarrhea and other minor gastrointestinal problems.
Be careful of the pits!
But, do make sure not to give the whole peach to your dog! He might end up eating the pit, which is a choking hazard! It can also cause intestinal blockages.
What you can do is cut up some peaches and feed them fresh to your furry friend.
The thing about canned peaches…
While fresh peaches are safe, canned peaches may not be as they contain large amounts of sugar along with artificial flavors and preservatives. Some may also be laced with pesticides and cause a toxic reaction.
It’s better to be safe than sorry and save yourself an emergency visit to the veterinarian.
