People share food with their pets all the time, but some human foods are better to share than others. Apples are a great snack for dogs when used in moderation. Their sweet smell and firm texture provide some benefits while also delivering a mix of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Although there are some key things to keep in mind concerning preparation, there are plenty of ways to safely integrate apples into a dog's diet.


1. Benefits

Apples are tasty treats packed with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants that make a nice snack for dogs. They're low in protein and fat can be a particularly great snack for older dogs on low-protein or low-fat diets for health reasons. There are a lot of benefits for young, active dogs, too. In fact, some vets believe the antioxidants and vitamin C contribute to joint health while the fiber helps keep the gastrointestinal system regular.
