Today is National Watermelon Day and possibly the best day of the summer…at least for us watermelon lovers.
Did you know you doggy just might love watermelon?
Perhaps more important “Is watermelon safe for my dog?”
Most definitely! But there are a few precautions to be aware of.
Basically, get them the seedless variety and don’t let them go green and eat the rinds.
“The fruit itself is a health-food powerhouse, low in calories and packed with nutrients — vitamins A, B6, and C, and potassium,” reports the AKC. Plus, it’s only 50 calories a cup and 92 percent water, which means it’s a super-hydrating snack on a hot summer day.
