For a simple snack, head to your freezer. “Ice cubes keep dogs hydrated and give them something to play with,” says veterinarian John de Jong. Make small cubes so Fido doesn’t chip a tooth.
We aren’t the only ones who enjoy munching on veggies. “Baby carrots are the main treat I give to my own dogs,” says professor Lisa Freeman. Just make sure to cut ’em up into small pieces first.
Most fruit is totally fair game for your dog, and it’s a sweet special treat, says Freeman. Her top picks? Bananas, apples, oranges, watermelon, strawberries, and blueberries.
