Does your dog eat blueberries on a weekly basis?
Mine does! It’s one of his favorite treats, in fact. Teton enjoys the many benefits of blueberries in a few different ways. He gets them as a ‘just because’ treat, as a mix-in with his dry dinner, or in combination with a pill (cheaper and easier than a Greenie Pill Pocket).
Here are some reasons your dog will benefit from eating blueberries:
Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants.
Blueberries contain high levels of Vitamins K and C. Vitamin K is instrumental in blood coagulation and bone health. Vitamin C works to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Blueberries are a great source of dietary fiber.
Blueberries contain a significant amount of manganese, which keeps bones and nerves strong, helps fight off free radical damage, assists the thyroid gland, and synthesizes cholesterol and fatty acids.

I can’t get my dogs to like blueberries, or fruit of any kind! What’s up with that? Veggies I’ve had more luck with. What’s Teton’s favorite veggie? 🙂
Veggies are definitely a staple for Teton in our house, too! His favorite is carrots but he also likes sweet potato, avocado, and peas. What are Lulu and Pippa’s favorites?
