Mcintosh, Gala, Fuji, Golden Delicious, Red delicious, sour green, and honeycrisp. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re referring to one of the best tasting fruits out there, the apple! Specifically I’m going to be answering the question that this site revolves around, Can dogs eat apples?

The answer is most certainly, YES! Dogs can eat apples! The one thing you need to worry about while you’re feeding your dog apples is that you should never let your dog eat the apples seeds. They can be very toxic to your dog. What I would recommend if you want to avoid the hassle of picking apple seeds out is to buy apples that are already cut into slices.

You can feed your dog apple chunks or apples cut into slices. The skin is also fine for dogs and puppies so don’t worry too much. Remember, apples are high in sugar so it is best to not make apples an everyday part of your dog’s diet as it can lead to weight gain and unhealthy habits. They are a great treat for your dog especially when you are rewarding them for good behavior.

The skin may be a controversial topic. Some people swear that dogs should not eat the skin of an apple however upon doing my own research I have not found a single person who says the skin is actually that bad. I’ve read countless times that it is perfectly fine to give the apple with skin to your dog as long as the seeds aren’t in there. When I give my own dog apple slices as a treat, I leave the skin on and she seems to love it!

So let’s see if you’ve been paying attention. Can dogs eat apples? If you’ve answered yes, then congrats! You have been paying attention and you should know all the do’s and don’ts when feeding apples to your beloved doggie!
