Things that are good and bad for dogs: 1. Blueberries are good for dogs. Super food rich in antioxidants. Packed with fiber and physiochemical. Good for a frozen treat. 2. Chocolate. Very toxic, because it contains a substance called methylxanthines which stops a dog’s metabolic process. Even a little bit is harmful; the darker the chocolate the more toxic it is.
