Dogs Can Safely Eat Certain Parts of the Apple

Apples can make a good, occasional treat for dogs because they are a rich source of fiber and nutrients. You just need to be aware of the parts of the apple that are safe for dogs to eat and the parts that should be avoided because they could be toxic.

When you prepare apples for dogs, you need to first remove the seeds, stem, and core. The seed, in particular, is toxic to dogs because it contains a small amount of cyanide. Once the “dangerous” parts are discarded, we suggest either cutting the apple flesh into small chunks or to blend it and add it to your dog’s regular meal.

Despite the many health benefits that apples have to offer, it’s not considered a normal thing for dogs to eat so it should only be served as an occasional treat.
