Does your dog enjoy eating fruits but you don’t know if you can give him some? Under no circumstances, you should give your dog certain fruits. They can seriously affect his health.
Follow this short brief to learn which fruits can be given to your dog and which can’t.


Avocado is one of the most dangerous products that you can feed your dog with. It contains the active ingredient called persin which leads to heart damage that can’t be treated. The high-fat content also affects the digestion and leads to gastrointestinal complaints.

Citrus fruits

Although citrus fruits are optimal sources of vitamin C, they contain a great deal of acidity. Dogs with acidification problems, therefore, tend to get gastrointestinal complaints from citrus fruits.

Raisins and Grapes

Raisins are absolutely not suitable for dogs as well as grapes. Dogs that have eaten the fruits in large quantities often show signs of poisoning: they vomit and are very sluggish. In addition, there is a risk that their kidneys fail. In this situation, it is advisable that you consult a veterinarian.

Note that your dog should consume safe fruits only in limited amounts. In addition, different fruits require different levels of preparation to make them safe for your dog. Make sure you know how to prepare each food before your dog takes a bite properly!

A healthy diet is important

Dogs’ diet should only consist of meals from raw meat and bones supplemented with mashed or minced fruit and vegetables, which are partly raw, partly cooked. The fact is: What the human being can eat raw, the dog can eat raw. However, you can give your dog some fruit as a between meal snack. It’s advisable that you feed your dog with fruit only from time to time. Dried fruit is also suitable as a healthy snack, but not as a regular treat. If your pet eats too much dried fruit, it can get flatulence and diarrhoea. In addition, dried fruit brings a lot of energy because it contains more calories than fresh fruit. That is why it’s best to keep an eye on the dog's weight so that your four-legged friend does not become overweight.


You can feed your dog with some abovementioned fruits but only in small amounts. For example, you can give your dog a small piece of a watermelon during hot, summer days. It will hydrate him and give him some sweet pleasure.
