What non-organic fruits and vegetables are safer for your dog?

If you feed your dog some yummy, healthy, safe fruits and vegetables like carrots, bananas, green beans, apples and more; feeding organic is the way to go. But sometimes you just can't find organic. So what's a dog to do?

In that case it's helpful to know which non-organic produce is the most dangerous when it comes to the levels of pesticide residue left on your produce when it reaches the grocery shelves.

The Environmental Working Group released recently their 'EWG's 2014 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce™, to help you make more informed decisions when selecting produce for you and your dog.

Some of the most pesticide laden non-organic produce included on their list are apples, carrots, blueberries and more. And the non-organic produce that has the least amount of pesticide residue include melons, green beans, watermelon and more.

You can see the full report on the Environmental Working Group website.

Remember: Safe fruits and vegetables are a great addition to your dog's diet, just be certain that the produce you feed them is not only safe, but free of pesticides that can be harmful to your dog's health.
