But is it safe for dogs? In general, dogs can eat pineapple and enjoy the sweet, fiber-rich treat as well so long as a few simple tips are followed. So, usher in the summer with a sweet treat for both you and your dog.


1. Nutrient-Rich

Feed your dog pineapple chunks as part of a balanced, healthy diet. Pineapples are rich in a variety of minerals and vitamins, including Vitamins C and B6, thiamine, niacin, and riboflavin. It also has manganese, copper, and potassium, which helps to reduce inflammation and prevent muscle cramps. While most higher-end dog food will contain similar vitamins, amino acids, and minerals, these components can be more effective in naturally occurring foods.
