Goji berries are the type of superfood that you can eat by the handful and reap a ton of health benefits from. They make a great addition to shakes and cereals and make the perfect cup of tea. But, does that mean they are great for our dogs?
Yes, goji berries are just as good for dogs as they are for us. They have a wide range of health benefits and even help to boost your dog’s immune system.
Benefits of Goji berries
Goji berries are loaded with vitamins and nutrients that can benefit your dog. These include vitamins, B, C, and E, along with nutrients such as protein, iron, and calcium. When eaten in the right portions, it will help to improve your dog’s muscle, bone and nerve health. This will help to slow down aging, reduce the risk of conditions such as arthritis, and improve cognitive function. It will also give your dog’s immune system the protection it needs against other diseases and infections.
Feeding your dog goji berries
As usual, before feeding anything new to your dog, especially human foods, consult your dog’s veterinarian and especially if your dog has any existing conditions. He/she will also advise you on the correct amount to give your dog, and the frequency. He/she may also suggest goji berry supplements if your dog does not fancy the taste.
Always serve your dog fresh or dried goji berries, and not the ones you wish to dispose of.
