Every Cane Corso owner wants to share human foods with their pooch. It’s part of the fun, right? But Cane Corsos have different metabolic systems than ours, so sometimes what we consider healthy is not good for our Cane Corso.
If you’re a Cane Corso owner, you know how hard it can be to get your pup to eat healthy, so it’s important that you know which fruits and vegetables are safe for him or her. If you don’t know which ones are safe or not, then your Cane Corso might eat something toxic!
So below are the most common 37 fruits, vegetables & other snacks Cane Corsos can (and can’t) eat:
List of fruits Cane Corsos can or can’t eat
Wondering which fruits your Cane Corso can eat or not? Here is a list of some common fruits your Cane Corso can or can’t eat:
Can Cane Corsos eat apples?
Absolutely! Apples are a great snack for your furry friend. They’re packed with vitamins A and C, as well as fiber—the perfect treat for any Cane Corso. They’re also low in protein and fat, making them the perfect snack for senior Cane Corsos.
Just make sure you remove the seeds and core before giving your Cane Corso an apple slice, or any other part of the fruit. In addition to being difficult to digest, they can cause intestinal upset and vomiting if swallowed whole.
If you’re worried about sugar content, avoid processed apples like applesauce or apple pie filling—these contain added sugar that can be harmful for Cane Corsos. Instead, give your pup a fresh slice of apple that you’ve cut up yourself.
Avocados are not safe for your Cane Corso to consume.
Avocado fruit, pits, leaves, skin and the actual plant contain persin, so these parts are potentially poisonous to your Cane Corso. However, avocado oil is safe in small amounts.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat bananas! Cane Corsos love bananas for their sweet taste and low calorie count. They’re also a great source of potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and copper.
Bananas are low in cholesterol and sodium and high in sugar content. We should give them as an occasional treat rather than a regular part of your pup’s diet. If you do choose to give your pup a banana occasionally, just remember that it’s best to remove the peel before feeding it to your Cane Corso (the peel is hard for him to digest). You should also avoid processed bananas like banana chips or puddings—there may be added toxic ingredients present in these treats that could harm your pup.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat blackberries. Blackberries are low in calories and sugar and high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Frozen or fresh, either is fine.
Avoid processed blackberries like blackberry jam, jelly, blackberry-flavored ice cream, as they may contain harmful additives.
You should feed your Cane Corso 2 blackberries a day per 10 pounds of body weight.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat blueberries.
Blueberries are a healthy snack for Cane Corsos, as they are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. However, because of their high sugar content, it’s recommended that you feed your Cane Corso only 4-5 blueberries per 10 pounds of body weight. Frozen, fresh, dried or mashed—either is fine most of the time. Just avoid processed blueberries like blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt, blueberry pie, and blueberry pancake because they may contain harmful ingredients.
Can Cane Corsos eat cantaloupe? The short answer is yes. Cantaloupe are low in calories but high in other nutrients like fiber and moisture. However, cantaloupes are also high in sugar, so give your Cane Corso in moderation. Remove rinds and seeds, since they can cause choking if ingested by your pet.
No, Cane Corsos can’t eat cherries.
Although the fleshy part around the seed is safe, the plant contains cyanide. Cyanide destroys cellular oxygen transport in your Cane Corso and can cause serious damage. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including dilated pupils, vomiting and diarrhea, rapid breathing, heart arrhythmias and even seizures. The amount of cyanide in cherries varies by type and variety, but if you suspect your Cane Corso has eaten some, contact your vet immediately to see if treatment is necessary.
Grapes are very toxic to Cane Corsos, and even a small amount can cause sudden kidney failure in your Cane Corso.
Symptoms of grape poisoning include:
- Weakness and lethargy
- Loss of appetite
- Abnormal urination (increased urination, frequent urination, or blood in the urine)
Seek veterinary help immediately if you suspect your Cane Corso ate grapes. It is possible to recover from grape poisoning if you act quickly enough.
The short answer is yes, Cane Corsos can eat mango.
Mangoes are a delicious fruit that are high in vitamins A, B6, C and E. They also contain potassium and antioxidants.
However, take care when feeding your Cane Corso mango because it may cause diarrhea if the fruit isn’t ripe enough or if you feed them too much of it at once. As a general rule of thumb, stick to one-quarter cup of fresh ripe mango once a week as an occasional treat for your Cane Corso.
If you want to give your Cane Corso processed products made with mangoes like sorbet or popsicles, make sure they don’t contain any harmful chemicals like artificial sweeteners or coloring agents because they could be toxic if eaten by Cane Corsos.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat oranges. In fact, oranges provide a lot of good things for Cane Corsos: Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and moisture. While it is important to monitor how much you feed your Cane Corso, one or two sections of orange flesh as an occasional treat are enough for most Cane Corsos.
To ensure the safety of your Cane Corso and the freshness of his treat, remove all traces of peel, skin, pith and seeds before feeding him any part of an orange. This will help prevent constipation and diarrhea in your pup!
Yes, your Cane Corsos can eat peaches.
Peaches are high in fiber and vitamin A, which can help with digestion and boost the immune system. Small amounts of cut-up fresh or frozen peaches are safe for your Cane Corsos. However, remove the pit before serving it to your Cane Corso as it contains cyanide. Also, avoid processed peaches like peach cobbler or peach pie, as they may contain harmful preservatives.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat pears.
Pears are a great snack because they’re high in copper, vitamins C and K, and fiber. They can reduce the risk of having a stroke significantly. Just be sure to cut pears into bite-size chunks and remove the pit and seeds first, as the seeds contain traces of cyanide. Skip processed pears like canned pears as it may contain sugar syrups and other additives that aren’t good for your Cane Corso.
One small slice is ok for most Cane Corsos as pears contain sugar.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat pineapple.
Pineapple is a tasty snack for Cane Corsos, but you should be careful to only give it to them in moderation. The fruit not only contains vitamins and minerals that your Cane Corso needs but also contains bromelain—a protein-digesting enzyme that can help ease inflammation.
The skin is not safe for your Cane Corso to eat because it has sharp spikes that could hurt their mouth or throat. You should also remove the hard inner core from the fruit because it can cause blockages in their digestive system.
It’s best to give Cane Corsos about 2/3 small bites of raw pineapple at one time, since too much bromelain can cause diarrhea. Avoid canned or processed pineapples, as these often contain added harmful chemicals.
Yes, pure pumpkin itself is a great choice and a very healthy snack for Cane Corsos.
Pumpkin helps with your Cane Corso’s skin and coat. Also great for digestion and can help remedy both diarrhea and constipation in your Cane Corso.
Never feed your Cane Corso pumpkin pie mix. Canned pumpkin is ok for your Cane Corso but make sure it’s 100% pumpkin.
Many pumpkin supplements and pumpkin pup treats are available on the market today, so you won’t have to worry about getting the right product. Amount varies with your Cane Corso’s size and activity level, but start with a teaspoon per day.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat strawberries.
Fresh and frozen strawberries are both great for your Cane Corso’s health. They’re rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants—and they’ll keep your Cane Corso’s mind and body sharp.
Just like you should cut up grapes for your Cane Corso, be sure to cut the strawberries into small pieces before serving them to him or her. That way, there’s less risk of choking or getting a piece stuck in the throat. And always remove the stem from the strawberry before giving it to your pet!
Avoid processed strawberries like jams or fruit pies; instead, stick with fresh or frozen berries for maximum benefit for your Cane Corso’s health.
Yes, and they should! Watermelon is a low-calorie treat that contains vitamins, minerals, lycopene, and moisture. It’s safe to feed your Cane Corso the flesh of a watermelon as long as you remove the seeds and rinds.
To ensure safety, cut the watermelon into small chunks or slices and remove the seeds and rinds from each piece. Half a cup of diced seedless and rind-free watermelon is enough per 10 pounds of body weight.
List of vegetable Cane Corsos can or can’t eat
Wondering which vegetables your Cane Corso can eat or not? Here is a list of some vegetables your Cane Corso can or can’t eat:
Can Cane Corsos eat broccoli? The answer is yes! Broccoli contains Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and minerals, as well as fiber. It’s best to offer 1/4 cup of broccoli per 10 pounds of body weight for your pup.
Broccoli stems and florets are both safe to eat—either cooked or raw—but always cut them into small pieces so they don’t pose a choking hazard.
Can Cane Corsos eat cabbage?
Yes, they can! Cabbage is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is also high in fiber and moisture.
Cabbage comes in all colors, red, green and purple. All colors are safe and healthy for Cane Corsos. Red cabbage is more nutritious than green cabbage because it contains 10 times more vitamins than green cabbage.
You can offer your Cane Corso one small bite of lightly cooked or roasted cabbage per 10 pounds of body weight every day.
Can Cane Corsos eat carrots?
Yes, they can! Carrots are a low-calorie treat that is full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They’re also great for your pup’s teeth because they help clean them as they crunch on the orange veggie. Raw or cooked carrots are fine. However, cooked carrots are easier to digest than raw ones. Chop raw or frozen carrots into smaller pieces to avoid choking hazards. A single baby carrot is enough for an average-sized pup.
But how about carrot cake? Is it safe for Cane Corsos? As long as you don’t add any harmful additives, it should be fine. Just make sure you monitor the amount of cake your Cane Corso eats so that he doesn’t get too full and stop eating his regular food or become ill from eating too much cake in one sitting.
Can Cane Corsos eat celery? Absolutely! Celery is a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients. It’s also high in moisture and fiber, which helps promote healthy digestion for both you and your Cane Corso.
Celery is an excellent low-calorie treat for Cane Corsos, especially big pups. You can feed it to them as a snack or use it as part of a meal. There are many ways to incorporate celery into your Cane Corso’s diet:
-Cut the celery into bite-sized pieces so that they don’t choke on it. You should start with one or two pieces at first, then gradually increase the quantity over time as long as your Cane Corso tolerates it well.
-Add small amounts of peanut butter to the celery sticks (or mix them together) for an extra treat! This way, your pup will lick off all the peanut butter without having to chew any more than necessary.
-Top it with other treats, like yogurt drops or cheese cubes so that they get used to eating their veggies.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat cucumbers.
Cucumber contains vitamins, minerals, moisture and fiber. It also provides phytochemicals that help freshen your Cane Corso’s breath.
Cucumber seed and peels or skin are safe as long as they are organic. However, avoid processed cucumbers like cucumber pickles, as they may contain harmful additives like onions, garlic, salt, and sugar.
Amount depends on the size of your Cane Corso but we recommend only one or two pieces of cucumber per day.
Garlic is toxic to Cane Corsos.
Garlic contains N-propyl disulfide, a sulfur compound that causes hemolysis (the destruction of red blood cells) and anemia, which can lead to death.
Other symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, weakness and collapse.
The toxic dose of garlic per kilogram of body weight is 15 to 30 grams. Contact your vet immediately if your Cane Corso ate garlic.
The answer is no. A Cane Corso can’t eat onions.
Onions contain a sulfur compound called N-propyl disulfide, which causes hemolysis leading to anemia in Cane Corsos. This toxic dose is 15 gm/kg of the body weight of your Cane Corso.
In fact, every type of onion is bad for Cane Corsos—red, white, yellow—it doesn’t matter what kind you give them! Besides, all parts of the onion plant are toxic to Cane Corsos too, including the flesh, ring, leaves, juice and processed powders. So if you’re wondering whether you can feed your Cane Corso an onion slice for dinner? No! Not even one little piece!
Contact your vet immediately if your Cane Corso ate onions so they can assess the situation and determine whether immediate treatment is needed.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat zucchini.
Zucchini is a low-calorie treat and full of vitamins and antioxidants. It’s also high in fiber and moisture that Cane Corsos need to stay hydrated.
Plain raw, steamed, or cooked zucchini is safe for Cane Corsos to eat. However, raw zucchini provides more Vitamin A than cooked ones.
Amount depends on the size of your Cane Corso but start with just one or two small bites.
List of some other snacks Cane Corsos can or can’t eat
Wondering which snacks your Cane Corso can eat or not? Here is a list of some snacks your Cane Corso can or can’t eat:
No, your Cane Corso should not eat bacon. Bacon is an incredibly rich and fatty food with a high salt content. It can prove to be too much for a Cane Corso’s stomach to handle and eating a large amount can cause pancreatitis. However, giving your Cane Corso small amounts of cooked bacon infrequently should not cause harm.
Cooked, unseasoned lean beef is safe for Cane Corsos in small amounts unless your Cane Corso is allergic to beef.
Beef broth, beef stew and specialized Cane Corso beef jerky without an excess amount of salt are also safe for your Cane Corso. However, stay away from raw beef because it can contain bacteria that could make your Cane Corso sick.
Never feed cooked bone to your Cane Corso as it can splinter or break into pieces while chewing; instead choose large raw beef bone as a chew toy! For a 20 pounds pooch, one cup of kibble or 0.3 pound of ground beef is fine if you choose a raw diet.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat bread provided your Cane Corso is not allergic to it. However, only plain white and wheat bread is safe for Cane Corsos to eat. Avoid processed bread like bread with yeast, which can be harmful to your Cane Corso.
Bread doesn’t provide that much nutrients in your Cane Corso, so offer them in moderation. A crust is fine, but a whole slice is too much for your Cane Corso. Too much bread can cause bloating and even diarrhea.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat cheese.
Cheese contains vitamins and fatty acids, as well as proteins. It’s a great source of nutrition for your Cane Corso. However, you should be careful about what type of cheese you give your Cane Corso. Mozzarella, cottage, swiss and cheddar cheese are all safer than other types of cheese like blue or goat cheeses.
The amount of cheese you feed your Cane Corso depends on the size of your Cane Corso, but a few small bites are fine.
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat chicken.
Chicken is a good source of protein and omega-6 fatty acids. It’s also packed with vitamins and minerals.
Boneless cooked breast meat is the best option because it has less fat than leg or thigh meat. Avoid chicken skin as it contains a high amount of fat that can cause pancreatitis in Cane Corsos.
The amount depends on the size of your Cane Corso but give 1/8th to 1/6th cup of meat per 10 pounds of body weight per day if your Cane Corso is on a raw meat diet.
Can Cane Corsos eat chocolate? The short answer is no. The long answer is that they contain theobromine and caffeine that are toxic to pups. Cocoa powder (most toxic), unsweetened baker’s chocolate, semisweet chocolate, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate- all of them are toxic for your pup.
If your Cane Corso ate chocolate, contact your vet immediately. And educate your family about the danger of chocolate in Cane Corsos to prevent accidental ingestion.
Can Cane Corsos eat eggs? The short answer is yes. Cane Corsos can eat eggs, but you need to be careful about what kind of eggs you feed them.
Eggs are high in protein, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, which makes them an excellent source of nutrition for your Cane Corso. Just like humans, Cane Corsos can’t produce their own vitamin B12, so they need to get it from their diet. Eggs are one of the best sources of vitamin B12 for Cane Corsos.
It’s important that you cook the egg before feeding it to your Cane Corso. Raw eggs may contain harmful bacteria that could make your Cane Corso sick or even kill him! You also need to make sure that the egg doesn’t have any seasoning on it (like salt) because Cane Corsos shouldn’t eat too much salt since that can lead to dehydration and other health problems over time.
The shell of an egg is fine as long as it has been ground up into little pieces and there aren’t any sharp edges left over from cracking open the egg initially (which would hurt your Cane Corso’s mouth if he tried licking off all those tasty bits).
Yes, Cane Corsos can eat fish.
Fish is a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. It’s also rich in vitamins and minerals that your Cane Corso’s body needs.
However, there are some things to keep in mind:
1. You should avoid feeding your Cane Corso any long-lived fish species like tuna, shark or swordfish because they can contain high levels of mercury—a heavy metal that can cause neurological damage in humans and animals alike.
2. Smaller fish species with shorter lifespans like salmon, shrimp or tilapia are safe for your Cane Corso to eat.
3. Always clean your fish, debone them, then cook it before serving it to your Cane Corso so that you don’t introduce harmful pathogens into their system.
Ice cream is delicious, but it’s not so great for your Cane Corso.
If you’re thinking of sharing some ice cream with your Cane Corso, think again. In fact, there are several reasons you should absolutely not feed your Cane Corso any ice cream.
First and foremost, ice cream contains high amounts of dairy products and sugar. Both of these things can be harmful to Cane Corsos because they can lead to diarrhea and other digestive problems. It’s also important to note that ice cream contains lots of fat and salt, which are both bad for Cane Corsos’ kidneys and liver.
If you suspect your Cane Corso has eaten any type of ice cream product—seek veterinary help immediately.
Can Cane Corsos eat peanut butter?
The answer is yes, but with some caveats. Peanut butter provides protein, vitamins and healthy fats, so it’s a great way to give your Cane Corso a nutritional boost. But you’ll want to make sure that the peanut butter you’re using is pup-safe—meaning it doesn’t contain xylitol or chocolate. Also, be careful of peanut butter pretzels; they contain three times more sodium than regular pretzels.
As far as amounts go, start with a half teaspoon per day and work your way up from there based on the size of your Cane Corso.
Many people are unsure whether their Cane Corsos can eat popcorn. The short answer is: yes, but only in small quantities as an occasional treat.
Popcorn contains several minerals important to Cane Corsos, like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc. It also contains fiber and trace amounts of vitamins. So plain, air-popped popcorn is safe for Cane Corsos to eat in small quantities as an occasional treat.
However, avoid processed popcorn. Buttered popcorn or popcorn with other toppings like salt or sugar shouldn’t be given to your Cane Corso because they can cause choking and damage your Cane Corso’s teeth. Also, un-popped or partially popped kernels can be a choking hazard and may even cause damage to your Cane Corso’s teeth.
The short answer is yes, Cane Corsos can eat turkey. Turkey is a great source of lean protein and fatty acids, which are important for your Cane Corso’s overall health and development. You should always provide cooked lean, white, unseasoned and boneless turkey meat to your Cane Corso, however.
Turkey breast meat is the best option as it has less fat than dark meat, but either one is fine as long as you don’t add any seasonings or sauces to increase sodium levels in the meal. If you do add anything extra to the turkey meat, make sure it’s safe for Cane Corsos too or else you may end up hurting your pup’s stomach! Avoid turkey skin as it can cause GI upset and pancreatitis in Cane Corsos. Also avoid processed turkey because it may contain harmful chemicals that could make your pet sick if eaten regularly over time (e.g., BHA).
Just remember: 20 grams of white meat turkey or 15 grams of dark meat turkey per 12 pounds body weight every day will help keep your pup healthy while providing them with all the nutrients they need.
Can Cane Corsos eat yogurt? The short answer is yes, as long as it is plain yogurt and not a flavored type of yogurt. Plain yogurt is perfectly acceptable as a treat or a snack for Cane Corsos.
However, your Cane Corso’s ability to digest dairy products can vary. If you have any concerns about whether your Cane Corso will digest the yogurt, avoid giving it to them until you have consulted with your veterinarian.
Some Cane Corsos may have trouble digesting dairy products because they lack the necessary enzymes needed to process them properly. In these cases, giving your Cane Corso yogurt may cause diarrhea or vomiting.
If your Cane Corso does not have these digestive issues and does not have any known allergies to dairy products, then plain yogurt is fine for them as long as you monitor how much they consume at one time.
Avoid any yogurts with added sugar or artificial sweeteners; these are both bad for Cane Corsos and can cause problems with their digestive system or even make them sick if consumed regularly over time (for example: diabetes).
