Benefits of Blueberries for Dogs

Blueberries aren't just delicious for humans; they also offer numerous health benefits for our canine companions.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider adding blueberries, in the form of fresh fruit, frozen, or dried in treats and dog food, to your dog's diet:

1. Antioxidants: Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C, E and K1, which fight free radicals and support overall health.

2. Minerals: Blueberries are no not only a natural multi-vitamin, but they are also rich in minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

3. Gut & Heart Health: Soluble fiber contributes to digestive regularity and healthy blood sugar levels.

4. Immune Response: Anthocyanins (the colorful pigment found in various flowers and fruits) go further than providing blueberries with their iconic shade of purply blue. These antioxidants join the ranks of vitamins A, C, and E to neutralize free radicals and support a healthy immune response.

5. Low Calorie: If you're watching your dog's weight, blueberries are a great option. They are low in sugar content and contain only about 1 calorie. This makes them a low-calorie, nutritious treat.

6. Bone Health: Blueberries contain essential nutrients like Vitamin K1, which is essential for bone health in dogs. This vitamin plays a role in blood clotting and heart health.
