11 Healthy Fruit & Vegetable Treats for Your Dog or Cat


My three-year-old rescue dog, Goblin, will do anything for a morsel of food, which is why I always keep a stash of dog treats on hand. But the cost of high-quality treats without corn and other fillers can start to add up, which is why I've bookmarked EatingWell's budget-friendly (and healthy) list of fruits and vegetables dogs can safely snack on — and there are quite a few for cats, too!

My dog is already a fan of apples, carrots and blueberries, but I've never thought about giving her things like celery stalks — apparently a good substitute for rawhide — or watermelon. And who knew my cat might enjoy the "semi-moist crunch" of zucchini?

A few things to keep in mind:
·         NEVER feed your pet the following foods, which are potentially toxic: Grapes, raisins, garlic, onion, avocado and chocolate.
·         Cats don't like fruit because they lack receptors for sweetness.
·         Treats should make up no more than 10 percent of your dog or cat's daily calories, so don't overdo it.
