Yes! Zucchini is safe for your dog to eat in moderation and is a good source of vitamin C, potassium, calcium, beta-carotene, and folate. These vitamins and minerals are important for your dog’s bones and the healthy functioning of your dog’s muscles, nerves, vision, and immune system.
If your dog eats a large quantity of zucchini, he may be gassy or could experience other digestive issues.
Dogs can eat zucchini:
- Grilled, baked, or added to a homemade meal that’s balanced with a good source of protein. Avoid seasonings such as garlic or onion powder that are unsafe for your dog.
- Sliced thin and frozen as an occasional treat.
- Shredded raw as a topping to your dog’s dinner.
