A representation of Strawberry

Strawberries are a delicious and healthy fruit that many people like to eat. But what about dogs? Can dogs eat strawberries? And if so, how much and how often? In this article, you'll find out everything you need to know about strawberries in relation to dogs.

What are strawberries?

Strawberries are not real berries, but aggregate fruits. This means that the small yellow seeds on the red surface are the actual fruits, which are surrounded by a fleshy receptacle. Strawberries belong to the rose family and are closely related to other types of fruit such as apples, pears and cherries.

Strawberries taste sweet and juicy and contain many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are particularly rich in vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system and protects cells from free radicals. They also contain fiber, which aids digestion and increases the feeling of satiety.

Benefits of strawberries for dogs

Strawberries can also be healthy for dogs if they are fed in moderation. The vitamins and antioxidants can support the immune system and reduce inflammation. The fiber can improve the intestinal flora and prevent constipation. Strawberries can also freshen breath and care for the gums.

Strawberries can also be used as a reward or a change in the diet. Many dogs love the sweet taste and soft texture of strawberries. You can offer them as whole fruit or pureed. However, make sure that you only use fresh or frozen strawberries and no sweetened or canned products.

Disadvantages of strawberries for dogs

Although strawberries are healthy, they are not suitable for every dog. Some dogs may be allergic to strawberries or develop an intolerance. Symptoms can include itching, skin rash, diarrhea or vomiting. When you give your dog strawberries for the first time, you should therefore only offer a small amount and observe his reaction.

You should also not feed your dog too many strawberries, as they contain a lot of fructose. Too much sugar can lead to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. As a rule of thumb, strawberries should not make up more than 10 percent of your dog's daily calorie intake. This corresponds to about one to two strawberries a day for a medium-sized dog.


Strawberries are delicious and healthy fruits that are also suitable for dogs in moderation. They can strengthen the immune system, aid digestion and freshen breath. However, make sure that you only feed fresh or frozen strawberries without sugar or additives and that your dog has no allergies or intolerances to them.
