Yorkies can eat strawberries and most enjoy this nutritious summertime treat.

Strawberries are not only delicious but they are a nutritional powerhouse loaded with fiber and vitamin C and potassium, with smaller amounts of calcium, iron and magnesium.  Strawberries are not as high in sugar as some other fruits but they do contain fructose and this should be considered when determining the amount your fur baby eats during any one meal and total amount eaten during any given day.  Of course, it is always best to consult with your vet to discuss specific nutritional requirements since dogs, like their human friends, are all unique.

The below nutritional values are taken from the USDA and are based on 100 grams of strawberries.  The strawberries we regularly purchase average 20g per berry so you can divide the below by 5 to get an amount per strawberry.  Of course, it would be best to weigh the strawberries you buy to get an idea of grams per berry.

Also, be sure to wash strawberries thoroughly before give them to your precious fur baby, they are known to contain high levels of pesticides and other chemical residues.
