Yes! Artichokes are healthy for dogs and contain vitamin C, folic acid, potassium, niacin, and lots of antioxidants. These vitamins and minerals help prevent illness and support your dog’s immune system, muscles, metabolism, and more. Artichokes may also help dogs with irritable bowels.
Dogs can eat artichokes:
- Raw! This ensures your dog will get the maximum amount of nutrients.
- In small doses. Cut the artichoke into bite-size pieces that are easy for your dog to eat and digest. In addition, your dog must eat a well-balanced meal with a good source of protein.
- Unseasoned. If you feed your dog a roasted artichoke, avoid any seasonings that are unsafe for dogs such as onion or garlic powder.
