Because pears are so beneficial to humans, you may have wondered, "Can dogs eat pears?" 

Can they?

Yes, pears can be eaten by dogs! They're fine for them to have as an occasional treat, so save a slice for your pup the next time you're eating the ripe green fruit.

How beneficial are pears?

Pears are high in vitamin C and K, as well as fibre, but they are also high in sugar, so only a small amount should be fed.

It's no surprise that pears have health benefits for dogs, even if the nutrients aren't as effective as they are for humans.

Not as effective as for humans

Not all dogs like pears!

Just keep in mind that not all dogs enjoy fruits, so don't be surprised if your canine companion isn't interested.

How much to feed?

Always cut the pear into small, bite-sized pieces and give your dog a small amount first to see how they react.

To feed canned pears?

Canned pears are not safe for dogs to eat because the sugary juices they are packed in can irritate their stomachs and cause diarrhea.

Can puppies eat pears?

Providing your puppy with a small piece of fresh pear is safe, but make sure to only feed them the flesh and not the skin.
