Can Dogs Have Strawberries
Yes, dogs can have strawberries but must be given in moderation. Strawberries are sweet and contain large amount of sugar. Large quantities of strawberries will upset your dog’s stomach.
Benefits of Strawberries
1) Did you know strawberries contain enzyme that help whiten your dog’s teeth? Strawberries contain “malic acid” that allow the particles that make stains on dog’s teeth break away.
2) Strawberries contain loads of Vitamin C which helps strengthen a dog’s immune system.
3) Strawberries are full of antioxidants essential for good dog health.
4) The natural anti- inflammatory agents in strawberries can aid dogs suffering from arthritis and from other musculoskeletal diseases.

1) Frosty Strawberry Hearts top w/ Toasted Coconut Honey Oats
2) Banana Strawberry Ice Cream
3) Banana Strawberry Hearts Ice Cream with Toasted Oats

I didn’t know all that about strawberries! We like to have fresh ones from our own garden in the spring, but don’t always end up with a lot! I love to add them to frozen yogurt treats for the dogs. We might have to try one of your other great recipes too now.
Sugar, your mama makes the prettiest, tastiest treats! May I come live at your house?

Ann Staub says
I didn’t know that about the teeth whitening. It’s weird but Shiner will eat the strawberry tops lol… I give them to her and she gobbles them up!
Nummy nummy! My momma uses a food dehydrator a lot, and I love love looooove getting homemade fruit roll-ups. The best thing is that they’re both safe for dogs and humans, since all it contains is fruit and a little honey! I’ll have to pass these ideas you have up to the Bosses/humans for contemplation! 🙂
