August 3rd is National Watermelon Day!
Did you know that watermelon is perfectly safe to feed your pup as a tasty summertime treat? It's true!
It's a very nutritious snack, with lots of vitamins such as vitamin A, B6 and C, as well as potassium! Watermelon contains fiber too, which helps to stop the sugar in the watermelon from having an overly unhealthy effect on your dog. The antioxidants in watermelon have also been linked to a decrease in inflammation.
Just make sure to remove any seeds and avoid feeding them the rind. Giving them a small piece as a cool, healthy treat is perfectly AOK. Go ahead, share some watermelon with your pup today and enjoy those "dog days of summer" together
