Dogs have a reputation for eating whatever their “masters” do. Though it may seem cute that our furry buddies nibble on whatever crumb from our food that falls on the floor, there are always exemptions. […]
On the other hand, Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights free radicals or cancer-causing substances in the body.
Both of these substances pose a positive effect on dogs. And rose apples offer such benefits.
Rose apples are excellent sources of fiber
Having fiber in the food is very healthy.
These fibers help in the digestion of food, along with their passage through the digestive tract.
Since it is indigestible, fibers absorb water making the excretion of food smooth and flowing.
It can help dogs with constipation problems.
Additionally, rose apples are 93% water, so that makes it better.
So, can dogs eat a rose apple then?
With all that, it is undeniable that rose apples are healthy for our furry friends.
And these fruit species can be fed to dogs but in regulated amounts, more preferably as treats only and not the main course.
Since rose apples do not have Sodium in them, this might cause an imbalance when combined with its very high potassium content, which may lead to hyperkalemia or potassium toxicity if consumed in massive amounts.
Just feed them a few pieces here and there, and all will be well, if not healthier than before.
