Can dogs eat apples?

Yes. Apples, including the skin, are a healthy treat for dogs, but be sure to remove the core first.

In large quantities, apple seeds can be harmful to dogs. Apples are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, are low in fat and protein, and are loaded with fiber and potassium. There are many varieties of apples and all are dog-approved. However, if given the choice, opt for a green apple which is richer in Vitamin A and bit healthier.

I love apples but thanks to askPurrch I know I’m not supposed to eat the seeds or the stem.

I think I did a pretty good job navigating the core. What do you think?

Apple here! I’m a sweet pup with lots of fun energy. Pretty sure I’d be a great running companion. How about a loop of Prospect Park? You in?
