Yes! It’s safe to feed your dog iceberg lettuce. However, it provides only a small amount of nutritional value including fiber, potassium, zinc, calcium, folate, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. These vitamins support the health of your dog’s vision, blood, liver, colon, immune system, and more. Your dog shouldn’t eat a large amount of this vegetable, or it can lead to gas and other digestive issues.
Dogs can enjoy raw or cooked iceberg lettuce, but your dog will have an easier time digesting cooked lettuce. Dogs can eat iceberg lettuce:
- Cooked as an ingredient in a homemade meal that’s balanced with a good source of protein.
- Steamed and given to your dog as a treat on occasion.
- Chopped finely or blended and sprinkled on top of their dog food.
