Yes! your pet can eat pineapples.

Pineapple makes a healthy treat for your dog as it is loaded with Folate, Niacin, Riboflavin, Thiamin, Vitamins B6 & C, as well as other minerals such as copper, calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium, manganese and zinc.

Fresh pineapples should be used as the canned varieties have too much sugar for your dog to handle. Be sure to follow the 90/10 rule. Pineapples and other treats should not take up more than 10% of your dog’s daily intake.

You can feed pineapple to your dog by cutting chunks of the flesh into bite sized pieces to avoid choking. The spiny skin and the core of the pineapple should be avoided as they are hard to digest and may present a choking hazard.
