If you've got a blender at home and fancy treating your pooch, dog smoothies have been taking off in a big way.

Pet owners in search of the best dog treat for their canine chum are often turning to the Internet to ask everything from "Can dogs eat bananas?" to "Can dogs eat oranges?" and this tasty trend might go someway to explaining why.

Dog smoothies usually involve blitzing together fruit (and sometimes vegetables) as well as other pet-friendly favorite ingredients like plain Greek yoghurt to create a cooling concoction a pooch will lap up immediately.

There's two ways you can approach dog smoothies: it can be served in a simple bowl and given to your dog as a way to keep them cool in warmer weather or added to dry dog food to create interest and variety in your dog's food bowl. 

The idea is to create a healthy dog treat but is it nutritionally the best thing for your pup?  

Can dogs have smoothies?

Yes! You certainly can feed your pooch a homemade dog smoothie. Dogs can receive certain benefits from fruits like humans can, but be sure to keep everything in moderation and consider the overall balance of your dog's diet. 

This is because ingredients we consider healthy may actually contain higher amounts of sugar and starch than you expect, meaning your well-intentioned healthy dog treat might not be as nutritionally clever as you'd hoped. It will help to get a good idea of what human foods dogs can eat before you start.

Be sure to consult with your vet about any potential food allergies and specific dietary needs your dog may have, and keep it in small amounts to ensure your pup can enjoy the benefits of their homemade dog treat
