It's no surprise that these bountiful berries are a steadfast favorite when it comes to healthy summertime snacks. But is it safe to give strawberries to your dog so he can enjoy them too? The short answer is, yes! Strawberries are one sweet summer treat that can be savored by dogs and humans alike.


1. Are strawberries safe for dogs?

If you caught your pup "red-handed," you can rest assured that strawberries are not poisonous or toxic to canines. However, you should always check with your veterinarian before sharing any human food with your pet just in case, because certain medical conditions or medications might interfere with your dog’s ability to digest certain foods.
