Party Fruit For Your Pup

Sep 24, 2020 | Pets, Treat Recipes

Happy “Friday Treats Friday” everyone!  I’ve missed the last two weeks because I’ve been working hard on the cookbook.  This project has been so much fun and is nearing the end.  I set a deadline for publishing in October and I’m on track!  Because I’ve missed the last two weeks, I’m including two other recipes in my email newsletter for you to click on if you like.
 
Now let’s get back to this delicious treat I’ve made for Jake and Maggie!  My thought behind this recipe is simple, healthy, and colorful.  And what better way to add a treat to any puppy party is with this one.  We make appetizers for parties that include cheeses, olives, and simple ingredients so why not re-create that into a cantaloupe, spinach, watermelon, and blueberry treat for your pup?  Of course, you would not want to give them the toothpick but I wanted to show a more organized plate.  One way to do this is to fix up a bowl of fruit and serve in moderation!  Cut up this fruit and spoil your pup with this delicious plate!

Can dogs eat cantaloupe?  Yes but in moderation.  Fresh cantaloupe is a great treat for your dog and can be healthy for you too. Cantaloupe is rich in fiber and is about 90% water, so adding some to your dog’s diet can help promote hydration and healthy digestion.  They can even eat the seeds but it is best you omit those because they could possibly be a choking hazard for some dogs.
Can dogs eat strawberries?  Yes, dogs can eat strawberries. Strawberries are full of fiber and vitamin C. Along with that, they also contain an enzyme that can help whiten your dog’s teeth as he or she eats them. They contain sugar, so be sure to give them in moderation.

I’ve posted before that blueberries, veggies, and spinach are delicious and healthy for dogs (HERE) and setting up your pup’s birthday party ideas (HERE).  This is one recipe to include for both humans and the fur friends.  This is a cheap treat that are easy to keep in an air tight container.   Just make sure you wash all the fruit and veggies you give to your pup to remove any bacteria, sprays, and chemicals.
