No. While cranberries in their raw or juice form are healthy for dogs to eat (in small amounts), dried cranberries are not. They contain preservatives, have a higher sugar content than raw cranberries, and have been leached of most of their healthy vitamins and minerals.
Symptoms to Look For
If your dog has eaten dried cranberries, he may experience diarrhea or stomach upset, but cranberries aren’t toxic or highly dangerous to dogs. Any symptoms should pass within 24 hours. But, if not, certainly call your vet. And avoid giving dried cranberries to your dog in the future. Try raw cranberries instead.
