We’ve put together this A-Z guide of vegetables and fruits to help relieve some of the worry you feel when it comes to serving your fur baby anything from the plant kingdom. We’ve done the research and found which foods aren’t safe, and those that are safe to help you keep your pup in tip top condition! One note—if you have questions about any of the foods on this list and need additional information on their safety for your pal, then be sure to check with your veterinarian. They are the most knowledge about your dog and his medical conditions and will be able to offer advice on the best foods for him, serving sizes, etc.

Some Things to Keep in Mind

While many foods are healthy for your pet and they’re listed as safe for dogs, it’s always a good idea to introduce a new food slowly at first. In beginning, you don’t really know if your pet can tolerate the new food, if he’ll like it, or even if he could have an allergic reaction to it. So, start slow by serving him small portions scattered throughout the week (about every other day or so).

Watch for any symptoms that seem unnatural for your dog and if you have any concerns, always check in with your vet

Watch for these symptoms—they could indicate an allergic reaction in your fur baby:

If your dog shows any of these signs, please call your vet immediately. Your dog may have eaten something he’s allergic to and may need treatment right away. An allergic reaction can become life-threatening very quickly.

Also, keep in mind that dogs are carnivores and their digestive systems are not created to digest plant matter. To help your pup easily digest veggies, it’s a good idea to cook them first, then serve the veggies to your dog. There are some veggies your dog can eat raw, but most should be cooked in some manner, before your pup eats them.

Now, with this information in mind, let’s get started—with the letter A, of course!
