The short answer is yes, dogs can eat strawberries.
Sure they can. Should they eat strawberries? It’s likely not harmful for them to do so unless they eat too many of them. It’s not so much a matter of strawberries being in any way harmful to dogs, it’s more a matter of them eating too much of something that’s not a normal part of their diet. Dogs are for the most part meat eaters, but they will eat vegetation as well, and grains and flour often make up a significant portion of some dog foods.
All Dogs Are Not Created Equal
– There isn’t always any way to tell what might hurt a dog to eat and what might not. The situation isn’t necessarily breed specific, except smaller dogs in general are more susceptible to suffering ill effects from eating the wrong things that are larger breeds. In addition, dogs can have vastly different eating habits. One dog can be the ultimate scavenger hound, eating anything and everything in its path. The next dog may be super choosy, with its preferences for food often extending to which brand of dog food it will accept.
Strawberries? OK – We seem to be straying farther and farther away from the original questions – can dogs eat strawberries? The purpose for doing so was first, to make note of a few things you should not feed your dog. Second and just as important is this. If a food type, such as fruit, is all right for your dog to eat, it doesn’t mean every food item in that group is going to be fine. But, if you avoid feeding your dog, grapes, raisins, onions, dark chocolate, and green potatoes or potato sprouts, it will probably live a long and healthy life.
