Can Beagles Eat Watermelon?

Yes, beagles can eat watermelon, provided you remove the seeds beforehand and serve it in treat size pieces. You’ve got to be sure it doesn’t replace their traditional diet (a diet of watermelon alone surely can’t be good for beagles!)

Is Watermelon Good for Beagles?

Watermelon can be a healthy treat for beagles in moderation. It’s low in calories and high in water content, which makes it a perfect treat on a hot summer’s day! Watermelon is also a good source of vitamin C and A, antioxidants, and potassium, essential for keeping your beagle healthy.

How to Serve a Beagle Watermelon

When serving watermelon to your beagle, it is important to remove the seeds and rind, as they can be a choking hazard. 

You can cut the watermelon into small, bite-sized pieces that are easy for your beagle to eat.

It’s also a good idea to avoid overfeeding them, watermelon should be given as a treat and not make up more than 10% of their daily calories.

Another good choice is you can cut it into slices or cubes and freeze them to give on a hot summer’s day (you could also blend it into a puree and mix it with their food)

It’s always best to consult with your veterinarian about any dietary changes for your beagle, especially if they have any specific health conditions.

Can Beagle Puppies eat Watermelon?

Yes, beagle puppies can eat watermelon, however a puppy does need a specific diet which shouldn’t be interfered with. When it comes to feeding your beagle puppy, it’s important to give them high-quality food that’s made just for their breed and size. Look for a food that’s packed with protein to support their growth and development, and has the right amount of fat and calories. Keep in mind that puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs, so make sure you pick a food that’s made for their life stage. Always follow the instructions on the puppy food package and if you’re ever unsure, don’t hesitate to ask your vet for advice on the best diet for your little beagle

As always, you should ensure that human food doesn’t completely take over your beagle’s diet. If you’re unsure of what foods to be feeding your beagle, check out our list of the best vet recommended beagle food.
