Default Chi's and fruit ?

I've started using my juicer twice a day again (yay!), and Mateo and Lola
sit at my feet begging for scraps.

I was just wondering if there are issues with Chi's and fruit I might not be aware of ?

Typicallly I'll give them 2-4 TINY slices of pinapple, orange, or berries.
But generally I'll give them a little piece of anything that comes along.
When Poco was alive he got similar treats daily for the better part of his life.

They go mental now when I go near the fridge - lol.

ive never given mine orange as for me i think its too citrusy and sometimes when i eat an orange myself it hurts mmy tummy. i let him have good amounts of cantaloupe, honeydew, blueberries, watermelon, raspberry which he doesnt like lol, pineapple he barely touches, stawberry doesnt touch, mango he loves, given the isides of a peach before. what he really loves the best is honeydew juiced i have bever seen any runny poo from all the fruit i have given him. except for vegies when i give him too much carrots it makes his poo orange O.o;

Diefie loves banana, melon, oranges, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and apple.
he gets small amounts a couple of times a week as they are high in sugar and i don't want him getting any more pudgy.

i forgot peaches, my boy loves them.
but make sure they don't get the peach stone, they can choke or block and will poison your dogs.

my vet said to avoid plums and apricots too, because of the cyanide contained in the stones/pits.
just be careful not to give grapes or any seeds or skins and start off with tiny amounts of safe fruits to see if it upsets their tummies.
there's something in grapes that is poisonous to dogs, various seeds have cyanides and avoid fruit skins because of insecticides and fertilizers.

if you're not sure about something then don't give it, then go do a little internet searching from reliable sites.
i think there's even a sticky thread about human foods on here.

Roxie absolutely loves apples, never give them the seeds though (or eat them yourself!).

Yes definately no grapes, raisins, plums or apricots! No peach pits and absolutely NO seeds of any kind so if you are blending please make sure you do not let a seed slip in

There is a sticky in the chi chat forum on "Dangerous people food" and has a list of foods that are dangerous for them.
