Yes…and no. While pomegranate fruit offers a host of benefits for us humans, dogs may not process the nutrients in the same way, and sometimes raw pomegranate can be harsh on a dog’s digestive tract. Pomegranates are not toxic for dogs to eat, so don’t worry if your pup has stolen a few from your plate. However, they may upset your pup’s stomach if he’s eaten too many, possibly causing vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. If he’s eaten any of the peel, he could also experience these discomforts.

If you’re looking for your pup to benefit from the high antioxidants found in pomegranates, then a good alternative snack to share with your pup are blueberries. This fruit is also rich in antioxidants and won’t cause any stomach upset!
