Acai Berry and Pomegranate
I've been reading about the health benefits of acai berry and pomegranate. Are these "super fruits" harmful to dogs? I want to boost my ten-year-old German shepherd’s immune system and overall health.

Neither pomegranate (Punica species) nor acai (Euterpe species) cause serious or life-threatening effectsgastrointestinal upset is a typical sign of ingestion of either plant.
Since certain human medications and supplements can be harmful to pets, however, we strongly recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian for guidance on how best to support your pet’s immune system and manage any health issues.
