Can dogs eat strawberries?

Yes, fresh strawberries are OK for dogs to eat, but they should never have processed strawberries out of a can. The syrup the processed strawberries remain marinated in can contain too many sugars and other ingredients that are harmful to your dog. If you feed your dog strawberries, be sure to only give him fresh strawberries.

Packed with vitamins B1, B6, C, and K, strawberries also contain fiber, potassium, magnesium, iodine, omega-3 fats and folic acid. Adding the fruit to your dog’s diet can benefit your dog in the long run, too, because the fresh alternative to other treats reduces salt intake. In addition to helping balance a healthy diet, strawberries can strengthen the immune system, which, over time, can aide aging dogs.

Even though they are nutritious, strawberries can still kill your dog if they are not cut into small pieces. Smaller dogs are especially susceptible to the large berry, but even big dogs can have an uncut strawberry become lodged in their throat. To avoid that, simply cut the strawberry into pieces and feed them gradually to your dog.
