Blueberries: The Sleeper Hit

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.

Best of all, blueberries are deeelish.

And frankly, they’re cheaper than a bag of dog treats.

So, next time you reach for a handful of blueberries, toss a few to your dog.  It’s a quick, cheap, and easy way for them to get the nutrients they need.

    1. 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?
