Since strawberry season is rapidly approaching (slow clap for Strawberries!!) we thought it might be a good idea to answer this burning question of dog owners: Can Dogs East Strawberries? There are so many limitations as to what you can feed your pets, and we’re here to let you know that it is perfectly fine for dogs to eat Strawberries.
Feeding your dog fresh strawberries is a great treat for him, just make sure you avoid giving them canned strawberries, or strawberries in any sort of syrup as those varieties are not safe for dogs.
Giving your dog fresh strawberries provides a sweet treat and just like in humans, has several health benefits for your furry friend. The fresh fruit helps strengthen their immune systems, assists with the aging process and helps them to maintain a healthy weight.
How can I feed my dog strawberries? For smaller dogs you can mash the berries and add it right to their food, and for bigger dogs, just cut them up into small pieces. We hope that your dog enjoys this sweet treat as much as we do! And for humans only, remember that Strawberries are always better when they’re Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.
