Yes! Sliced cucumbers are a great treat for your dog. On hot summer days, they’ll keep your pet hydrated. You can also use cucumbers as training treats, boosting B-vitamins in the process. Don’t feed your dog a whole cucumber—it can be a choking hazard. As with everything, cucumbers should be eaten in moderation.
Your dog can enjoy fresh cucumber:
- Along with a meal
- As a snack or reward
The additives in pickles can be harmful to dogs, so you should not include them in your pet’s diet.
