5 reasons to feed our dog pineapple
We created our Chinese New Year Special Pineapple Tarts for dogs back in year 2020 and it has been a hit ever since. In fact, it is the only pineapple tart that is safe for dogs to consume. Our pineapple tarts are gluten free, sugar free and free from any artificial flavorings. Some pawrents have been asking if dogs can eat pineapple and the answer is YES THEY CAN! In fact, it is a highly nutritious fruit that should be added to their diet...in moderation. 
Here are 5 benefits of feeding pineapple to our dogs.
  1. Pineapple is a great source of vitamins and minerals: Not only is pineapple packed with vitamin C, but it also contains vitamin B6, vitamin K, manganese and dietary fiber, all of which are important for a healthy diet.

  2. Pineapple can support a healthy digestion: Pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that can help break down protein and aid in digestion. So, if your pup has a sensitive stomach, pineapple may be a helpful addition to their diet.

  3. Pineapple is a great source of antioxidants: Pineapple is a good source of antioxidants, which can help protect your dog's cells from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.

  4. Pineapple is a low-calorie treat: Pineapple is a low-calorie treat, which makes it a great option for dogs who are trying to maintain a healthy weight or if you are trying to manage their diet.

  5. Pineapple can be a great training treat: Dogs love the sweet taste of pineapple, so it can be a great way to motivate them during training sessions or reward them for good behavior.

As always, it's important to give pineapple in moderation, as it's high in sugar and if not given in small amounts can cause digestive issues. Also, never feed your dog the pineapple leaves or core. If you're introducing pineapple to your dog's diet, start off with small amounts and observe how they react, so you can be sure it agrees with them.

This year, we discovered a new way of cooking the pineapple jam and we are happy to say that our tarts can now stay fresh in room temp up to 2 weeks!

Our pineapple jam is cooked without any sugar, and sugar is a form of preservative in baked goods that keeps our human biscuits and tarts from getting moldy. This is why our cakes and tarts must be kept in fridge the moment you receive it. And it doesn't last as long as our human pineapple tart. 

Order our CNY Special Pineapple Tarts for your dog and feed them with a peace of mind. :)
