Can Dogs Eat Raspberries? When it is or isn’t an Emergency

Yes, dogs can eat raspberries in moderation. Raspberries can make healthy snacks for dogs as they are packed with antioxidants. Raspberries also contain less natural sugar than other fruits. Some dogs may suffer from an upset stomach if they eat too much sugar.

How many raspberries can a dog eat?

Raspberries should only be considered occasional snacks despite the many health benefits they offer to dogs. To be on the safe side, we would only let a dog eat no more than one or two raspberries. The main reason is due to the presence of natural xylitol, which is toxic to dogs. Theoretically, it will take a huge amount of raspberries to make a dog fall sick from the effects of xylitol but you should still exercise caution in case the dog is sensitive to the content in raspberries.

Any difference between black and red raspberries?

Both red and black raspberries are safe for dogs to eat in moderation. Some dogs may enjoy eating black raspberries more because it has a sweeter taste. Health benefits between the two types of raspberries are negligible because you would only be feeding a small amount to your dog. Your dog should be getting his dietary needs from his regular dog food in any case.
