When it comes to fruits and vegetables, it can be difficult for us dog owners to remember what they can share with their doggy best friends and which ones could prove fatal. So, where do watermelons come into this? Can dogs eat watermelons? The answer is yes, with a couple of precautions.
Watermelon seeds could cause an intestinal blockage, so make sure you remove all of them and slice it up. You should also not allow a dog to chew on the rind, this is because it can cause gastrointestinal upset.
The fruit itself is a health-food powerhouse, low in calories and packed with nutrients—vitamins A, B6, and C, and potassium and the fruit has only about 50 calories per 120g and is 92 percent water, so it’s great for hydration on a hot day. It also has no fat or cholesterol, so it’s pretty much guilt-free.
