Yes! Sweetcorn is safe for your dog on occasion. While it offers your dog some fiber, it’s also loaded with sugar and carbohydrates. You must ensure your dog has a balanced diet with plenty of protein. Corn is a filler in many dog foods, and it’s not a nutrient-rich food for your dog.
Dogs can eat sweetcorn:
- Sprinkled on top of their dinner bowl on special occasions.
- As an ingredient in dog food or a homemade meal balanced with a good source of protein.
- Avoid the cob! If your dog bites off a piece of the corn cob, it can cause intestinal blockage and lead to serious digestive issues.
