Introduce blueberries to your dog slowly at first, and in small amounts to avoid an upset tummy. Consider replacing one treat per day with a small handful of blueberries until your dog gets used to them.

Broccoli is good for fiber and digestion, plus it’s loaded with vitamins. Serve steamed broccoli to your dog, and chop it up into smaller, bit-sized pieces.


9. Chia Seeds
374
Chia seeds have a lot of fiber and nutrients. Sprinkle a few into your dog’s meals with a little coconut oil. Don’t overdo these, because chia seeds expand when they come in contact with moisture. When that happens, your dog’s stomach gets fuller much faster.


8. Apples
442
Apples have a lot of fiber to aid digestion. Don’t feed your dog any seeds because they contain small amounts of cyanide that could build up in your pet over time.
