Can Dogs Eat Strawberries?

The short answer: Yes.

The long answer: Feed your dog fresh and unadulterated strawberries only. That means no strawberries laced with sugar, dipped in chocolate or coated with nuts. Chop strawberries into bite sized chunks to avoid any choking hazards, as dogs – excitable creatures that they are – tend to be less particular about chewing every bite thoroughly before swallowing.

How to feed strawberries to your dog: Cube and serve fresh washed strawberries that aren’t coated with anything that dogs shouldn’t eat.

Here are three ideas for strawberry treats your dog will love:

  1. Strawberries, bananas, and peanut butter – all mixed into one big snack of ‘your dog will love you forever’.
  2. Freeze strawberries, then puree with some peanut butter or bananas for dog-friendly ice cream!
  3. Blend strawberries with bananas, then spread on an oven tray and bake at 250 degrees for about an hour – strawberry crunchy treats for play time!

In summary: Exercise moderation, wash and chop, and ensure no funny business with dips and coats – and you can safely give your dog strawberries. As with all other foods – look out for any allergic reactions. Aside from strawberries, discover which fruits your pooch can safely eat in our “can dogs eat” category.
