Yes! Pickles are safe for your dog; however, they are high in sodium and shouldn’t be fed to your dog on a regular basis. Pickles aren’t rich in nutrients but do have a small amount of vitamin A, K, iron, calcium, and magnesium. Cucumbers are a healthier option for your dog.
Dogs can eat pickles:
- Rinsed and chopped as a topping on their dog food from time to time.
- As a treat on special occasions.
- Plain! Avoid pickles with additional flavoring or seasonings like garlic that are unsafe for your dog.
