Cantaloupe is a healthy snack for dogs to consume in moderation!
The great thing about homemade dog treats is that you know all the ingredients and you can choose the most beneficial and healthy for your pup.
Cantaloupe is a healthy and safe fruit for your dog to consume in moderation, in fact, cantaloupe is a hydrating fruit made of 90% water, low in calories, and full of vitamins and minerals thus it is the perfect healthy summer snack.
But like most fruits, cantaloupe contains a high sugar content so it should only be served to your dog in moderation.
You wouldn’t want to feed your dog cantaloupe daily. It’s fine for a quick hydrating snack, but too much too often raises the risk of diabetes and obesity.
Diabetic dogs and overweight dogs should only be offered cantaloupe occasionally and under the supervision of a vet.
Organic milled chia seeds have a lot of benefits for dogs containing many beneficial antioxidants, high fiber content, high protein, and are rich in nutrients, but should be served in moderation only and portions should be according to your dog's weight.
1/4 teaspoon of chia seeds for every 10 pounds of your dog’s body weight is an ideal amount. The seeds should also be soaked in water first.
Yogurt is high in calcium and protein. It also can act as a probiotic, which can be good for the digestive system. If you feed your dog yogurt, it should be plain and free of any added sweeteners, both natural and artificial. Added sugars are not healthy for dogs, and some artificial sweeteners, such as xylitol, are toxic for dogs
