Benefits of Strawberries for Dogs

Yes! Strawberries are good for dogs. Feed your dog strawberries like any other snack, but cut into small pieces and not feed more.

We like to eat strawberries because they are sweet. But sweetness is sugar. And a lot of sugar, even sugar in fruits, is not good for dogs. This is another reason why you should feed strawberries moderately.

The advantages of strawberries are low in calories, sweet, rich in antioxidants, high in fiber and vitamin C. This is a benefit. Strawberry has other benefits to dogs, for example, it can slow the aging process, help control weight,strengthen the immune system, and even whiten teeth.

How to Feed Strawberries to Your Dog Safely

The safest way is to wash them thoroughly and cut them into small pieces for the prevention of suffocation and easier digest. Mash the berries and add them to the dog food If you have a puppy. Chopped frozen strawberries are great for summer.

If you're planning to change your dog's diet, call your veterinarian first. And, if you do start eating strawberries for your dog, take care to start with smaller amounts and watch for changes in your dog's behavior or digestive problems. If you notice anything strange, stop feeding your dog strawberries and check with your veterinarian. If you notice upset stomach, digestive problems, severe scratching or thirst, call your veterinarian. These all indicate that strawberries are not suitable for your dog.

 

Can I feed Canned Strawberries?

In addition, canned and syrupy strawberries may contain additives, such as artificial sweeteners xylitol, which can be dangerous or even fatal to dogs.

Are Other Berries Safe?

Yes! Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are good for dogs, but not all kinds of berries are safe. Dogs usually don't like the bitterness of cranberries. Certain foods-Juniper berries or pitted berries-can be dangerous to eat. Before feeding him, be careful and study any new food.

Hello ! This Is Skippy!

Skippy is 2 years old and weighs around 14 pounds. Skippy is a lovely and endearing dog. However, she will NOT be placed in a home with children, grandchildren, children who visit, or grandchildren who visit. Ideally, she will be placed in a home that does not have frequent new visitors or expect her to interact with strangers and are willing to confine her until their company has left. Once she's comfortable with her new family, she'll be fine, but this will require patience and discipline. The key word is PATIENCE in allowing her to get to know and trust you at her speed and the DISCIPLINE required to not smother her with affection until the two of you have become well acquainted. She requires ---an experienced handler--- as she has a high anxiety level and can be territorial. Move too quickly and she will nip. She is very happy to be at home with her people and enjoys long walks. She would love a large yard to get her energy out running and playing. She has a HIGH ENERGY LEVEL. She would do well with agility training or another high energy activity. Come meet and adopt Skippy and your 2019 is bound to overflow with happiness-plus!
