Not if they’re wild. While not all mushrooms are poisonous to dogs, the ones that are present a very scary risk. You should never let your dog eat a wild mushroom. Death Cap mushrooms are common up and down the American West Coast, for instance, and can cause death in dogs who ingest them. Other wild mushrooms can cause varying levels of damage to a dog’s system. If you suspect your dog has eaten a wild mushroom, be sure to call your vet.
Mushrooms purchased from a grocery store and known to be safe for human consumption might be okay for your dog to eat. As long as your dog doesn’t have any allergies to them, button mushrooms are a healthy choice that pack plenty of vitamin D.
