Every dog loves a good treat and pineapple is considered to be just that. Pineapple can always be a great treat for your Maltipoo because it offers lots of health benefits when offered in small portions. Raw pineapple would be recommended instead of dried or even canned because of the added sugar that might be in it.
Can Maltipoos Eat Pineapple?
As we all know pineapple is one of the sweetest and juicy fruits out there so just as we love it our dogs find it just as good. Dogs can have pineapple, but you should only give them in small amounts, it may not contain anything toxic towards our dogs, but eating large portions may lead to severe healthy issues. Pineapple contains alot of nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin C and iron.
When feeding your maltipoo pineapple you should keep in mind that there are parts of the pineapple that we can’t digest which means our dogs will have the same issues. You should peel the outer section to remove all the spikes and properly dispose of it so your dog won’t try to eat it afterwards. You should also remove the inside core of the pineapple.
After that is complete you just need to cut it and only give your dog one bite and observe your dog to check for any allergic reactions or digestive issues. After you’ve made sure that its safe to eat you can then give your dog a small amount and store the rest for another time. Never give your dog more than 3 bites of pineapple in one day.
Can Pineapple be Harmful to My Maltipoo?
Even though pineapple can be very beneficial to your Maltipoo you should still be careful when giving it to them because too much pineapple can lead to digestive issues such as constipation or even diarrhea. Some dogs have more sensitive stomachs than others so even small amounts can give them stomach aches.
You’ll also find that pineapple has alot of sugar in it and we all know sugar isn’t a dogs bestfriend because that can lead to diabetes. The high acid amounts in pineapple can even damage your dogs tooth enamel and lead to decay so its real important to only give them small amounts from time to time and never too often. If your dog does start showing negative reactions please contact your local vet as soon as possible.
Can Maltipoos Eat Canned Pineapple?
Though dogs are able to eat raw pineapple we don’t recommend feeding them canned pineapple. Canned pineapple normally comes with preservatives that are high in sugar, plus added sugar to make it sweeter. This much sugar can give your dog an upset stomach and if continue fed can even develop other health issues such as diabetes and obesity. Only feed your Maltipoo fresh pineapple.
Pineapple can be a great treat for us and our dogs, but its also important to only feed it to them in small proportions because of the high acid levels and the high sugar amount found in pineapple. Pineapple does provide numerous health benefits because it is packed with nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin C and iron. Also only the inside soft fleshy section should be ate, the outside section and the inside core should be thrown away.
