Are Blueberries Safe for Dogs?

As pet parents, our pet's well-being is a top priority. A significant factor in keeping your dog healthy is feeding them foods that are not only safe to eat, but are also good for them. We know that grapes and raisins are fruits that you need to keep away from your pet, but what about berries like blueberries? Luckily, this superfood is sweet, succulent, and perfectly safe to give to your dog!

Health Benefits of Blueberries for your dog

 

Blueberries are jam-packed with many nutrients that can make a great addition to your dog's diet. Blueberries contain antioxidants, which are known to have anti-aging properties and are known to improve the health of animals. Blueberries are also packed with Vitamins C and K, fiber, Calcium, iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus.

 

How to feed your dog blueberries

 

Your dog would love either fresh or frozen blueberries. Make sure they are thoroughly washed before feeding to your dog to get rid of any pesticides or dirt. Stay away from any blueberry flavored items as they most likely contain preservatives, added sugars and other ingredients that might be unsafe for your dog.

 

Like all foods and treats, make sure to give your dog blueberries in moderation. While it is a safe treat to give to your dog, too many blueberries could cause your dog to get diarrhea. If you are giving your dog blueberries for the first time, monitor them to make sure they don't have an allergy to the fruit.

What other berries can my dog safely eat?

 

Strawberries are another great treat to give to your dog as well as the following berries:

 

  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • cranberries
