Can Dogs Eat Strawberries?

While consuming strawberries and whipped cream the other day, my wife and I looked over at my dog, and saw him staring in wonder, curiousity, and awe at the strawberries we were eating.

Because dogs can sometimes react negatively to treats with seeds, I did a bit of research to see about strawberries.

Can Dogs Eat Strawberries? Answer: Yes

Yes, you are able to feed your dog strawberries. However, it’s best to refrain from feeding your dog strawberries on an empty stomach. Additionally, it’s best to remove the stems and leaves from the strawberries, as they can cause slight stomach discomfort.

In saying that, strawberries are excellent for a dog, and are enjoyable and healthy, when given in moderation.

Nutritional Value

The best part of strawberries for your furry pet, are that they are low-calorie, offer anti-inflammatory properties, and best of all, contain antioxidants.

Strawberries also contain Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium, albeit in small levels.

Our pick for the best strawberry treats to feed your dog are the EXCLUSIVELY DOG Dog Smoochers Drops with Yogurt Treat, Banana/Strawberry. They are low-calorie, nutritious treats that are both nutritious for your dog, but something they will love!

What to Avoid

It’s best to avoid strawberry ice cream, or other strawberry sweeteners. Unfortunately, lots of these products do not offer the same nutrition, and are typically full of sugar, which can be unhealthy or fatty for your pet.

Strawberries are an excellent source of antioxidants, contain small amounts of nutrition, are low-calorie, and offer nice bite-size treats for your pet. Just be sure to remove the stems and/or leaves (if possible), and do not overfeed them to your dog.
