Raspberries offer a deeper concentration of antioxidants than most fruits due to it’s high levels of flavonoids, ellagic acid, vitamin C, and quercetin.

Raspberries contain trace amounts of naturally occurring xylitol which can be fatal for dogs, so it’s crucial not to overdue portion sizes.

Sprinkle 1/8 tsp per 15lbs of dog per day, at the most, every other day.
Added fruits and veggies should not exceed more than 10% of a dog or cat’s daily intake!
