Yes. Dogs are omnivores, and they benefit from many different fruits and vegetables for the same reasons humans do— these foods are low in fat and sugar, and high in vitamins and fiber. Raspberries are among the fruits that dogs can safely enjoy in moderation.
Be sure to feed your dog fresh or unsweetened frozen raspberries, rather than raspberries that have been dusted with sugar or packed in syrup. Too much sugar isn’t good for a dog’s health, and can lead to diabetes and other health issues down the line.
Also, keep servings to less than a cup, because eating tons of raspberries could present a problem thanks to trace amounts of the sweetener xylitol, which is harmful to dogs in large quantities.
Not all dogs like fruits and veggies, but they’re a healthy snack for the ones that do. If your dog likes them whole, there’s nothing wrong with sharing a few raspberries with your dog periodically. You can also try sprinkling them on your dog’s daily meal, or handing a frozen raspberry to your four-legged friend as a crunchy snack.
