Pineapple for dogs? YES!
A lot of dogs love eating pineapple, which like other fruits should still be regarded as a treat, although it has fabulous benefits for them. Pineapples are extremely rich in Bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme complex that will help with your dog’s joint problems. They are also rich in vitamin C which is important in maintaining good levels of collagen that can be helpful in cases of degenerative joint disease, hip dysplasia and spinal disorders. Pineapple consumption has also been correlated with the prevention of coprophagy habits.
When feeding your dog with fresh pineapple, take care to ensure the skin is adequately removed, since they would have a hard time digesting it. Same as humans with this fruit! That is why we have made your life simple with our Tippy Taps Pineapple Chews. They are a sweet, delicious treat that your pet will love and we’ve done all the work for you. The skin is completely removed from our pineapples and we cut them in tiny prices prior to drying them, to ensure they are more comfortable for your pet to eat. The drying process is just enough to ensure your pet will have fun chewing on each piece.
Always ensure your pet has access to fresh water and make sure his daily treats do not exceed 10% of the daily caloric intake, which should mostly come from the usual dog food.
