Everything you could possibly want to know about dogs and blueberries.

The Benefits of Blueberries

This small, cute, blue fruit is a mighty vessel containing powerful antioxidants and vitamins that can benefit you and your dog.

“Blueberries do the same for dogs as they do for humans: great antioxidants, fun treats, provide fun snacks to share with the furry family,” says Dr. Cathy Alinovi, DVM.

Dr. Al Townshend, Wellness Staff Veterinarian, adds a few more reasons why you should add blueberries to your dog’s diet:

  • Blueberries contain antioxidants, which may protect your pets cells against “free radicals.” This is a process your body goes through when breaking down food and can cause damage to your pet’s cells and DNA.
  • Blueberries can be beneficial to older dogs as studies have shown they may help with cognitive functions.
  • As blueberries are a good source of silicon, it is said they can help aid in the rejuvenation process to a dog’s pancreas.
  • Keep your pup’s heart healthy by feeding them blueberries. Studies have found dogs who eat blueberries have controlled blood sugar levels and may experience improved cardiovascular health.
