Homemade Treats For The Berry Best Pets


Our pets constantly put a smile on our faces, and they deserve the berry best! Berries are a “human food” that is good for pets, too! 

Of course, follow your veterinarian’s advice, and feed treats in moderation. The American Kennel Club recommends that all treats should only make up about 10% of your dog’s diet each day.

Here’s how to treat your pet with berries from California Giant Berry Farms

Blueberries: Blueberries are good for pets because they are low in calories, and contain antioxidants and other nutrients that support their immune system and overall health. When training a puppy at home, try rewarding a good boy or girl with a blueberry instead of a calorie-heavy biscuit from the pet store.

Frozen Treats: A simple way to keep your buddy cool in the summer is with frozen treats! Try mixing blueberries with plain Greek yogurt and spreading that mixture into a popsicle or ice cube trays.
