Yes, dogs can eat strawberry yogurt as long as it is free of any harmful ingredients like xylitol. Pre-packaged strawberry yogurt is also safe for consumption. However, it can have high sugar content. We suggest feeding all-natural strawberries and yogurt to your dog.

How Much Strawberry Yogurt Is Safe For Dogs?

The amount of yogurt your dog can have depends on size, age, and previous experience with dairy products. If your dog has a severe case of lactose intolerance, we suggest not adding yogurt to its diet.

A small dog can have a teaspoon of yogurt a few days a week, while a larger breed can have one or two tablespoons of yogurt twice a week.

What Happens If Your Dog Eats Too Much Strawberry Yogurt?

If your dog eats too much strawberry yogurt, the excess dairy product will probably lead to digestive issues. If the consumed yogurt is processed, chances are that it is high in sugar, which can spike blood sugar in dogs. This can lead to a risk of diabetes and obesity.

Are Some Strawberry Yogurts Better Than Others?

Processed strawberry yogurt you buy from stores tends to have additives, artificial flavoring, and a high amount of sugar. These ingredients can be harmful to a dog’s health.  A quick tip: It is best to prepare strawberry yogurt by blending Greek yogurt and fresh strawberries. This will help make it a healthy treat for your dog without risking any health complications.
