Yes. Figs are rich in dietary fiber, which is good for the digestive system. They’re also a great source of natural sugar, which will give your pet an energy boost without the sugar crash that follows a dose of refined sugar.
Start out small, just one fig to make sure your dog doesn’t have an allergic reaction. If not, share only two or three figs with your dog no more than twice a week. Too much of the dietary fiber and natural sugar in figs can cause stomach upset and diarrhea.
