Can Dogs Drink Rooibos Tea? (Benefits/Risks)

Yes, dogs can drink rooibos tea as it’s a healthy choice for your pet dog.

Rooibos tea, or redbush tea, is healthy for dogs because it can help to calm pets. It also has properties that aid in giving older dogs more energy and relieves digestive problems.

Rooibos tea contains minerals like calcium, magnesium, chloride, manganese, iron, and potassium. Other nutrients found in rooibos tea are thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, ascorbic acid, catechin, and tannins.

Rooibos is caffeine-free so it does not have the effects for which other caffeinated teas are enjoyed or avoided. Rooibos also has no tannic acid and therefore does not have the adverse effects that black tea has on dogs.

Rooibos is beneficial to dogs as it puts them in a calm state, but don’t drink too much because rooibos also contains oxalic acid, which can lead to urinary stones if consumed in high doses.

Can pitbulls drink rooibos tea?

Yes, pitbulls can drink rooibos tea.

Any dog can drink rooibos tea as long as they do not have any adverse reaction to it.

Please check the label of the rooibos tea for oxalic acid and consult your vet if you’re still unsure of how much or how often your pet should drink rooibos tea.
