One of the most loved fruits and flavors in the world is strawberry. So wouldn’t it be fitting for dogs to also love strawberries? However, since strawberries are coated with little tiny seeds, it is often wondered if dogs can eat strawberries? Fortunately for pet owners and dogs, they CAN eat strawberries.
Whether they are frozen, freshly plucked or even in a sauce form, strawberries are good for dogs. Just be sure to avoid feeding any chocolate covered strawberries to your doggy.
In addition to strawberries, dogs can also eat a wide variety of fruits, such as apples and bananas, while there are also some fruits that dogs need to stay away from. We have broken down a list of the CAN and CAN NOT eat fruits below.
