Maybe. Corn is safe for your dog to eat including corn kernels. However, be sure to monitor small dogs as they may choke on a kernel. Do not let your dog eat the kernels off a corn cob. If part of the cob is eaten, your dog is at risk for an intestinal obstruction leading to digestive issues.
Also, avoid giving your dog corn kernels that have been salted because your dog can become quickly dehydrated if they consume too much salt.
Symptoms to Watch For
Watch for these signs of choking if your dog has been eating corn kernels:
- High pitched squeaking
- Loss of color in tongue or gums
- Loss of consciousness
