For those who didn’t know, here is a little fun fact – pups are carnivores (and absolutely need meat to develop properly and thrive), but are capable of digesting plant matter to a limited degree.
This means that it is perfectly safe to feed your pups fruits and vegetables as a treat! Within reasonable limits, of course. Always make sure that anything you feed your pups is safe for them to eat first!
Some of these vegetables that pups can safely eat include cucumbers! Now, it is important to note that all pups are individuals, with their own likes and dislikes. So it is a good idea to see if your pup truly likes whatever it is you are giving them – they could just be eating it for the sake of free food!
This Golden Retriever puppy named Maximus clearly loves his cucumber snack, however! Mom has given him some small pieces of cucumber to eat. Although he takes a while to chew them, he eats them with great gusto!
