Yes! Cooked prawns, with the shells removed, are an excellent source of protein, B-vitamins, and phosphorus. Protein helps your pet maintain healthy muscles. Vitamins B3 and B12 boost gastrointestinal health, and phosphorus is essential for healthy bones.
Raw shellfish can carry intestinal parasites, so prawns should be cooked before consumption. The shells can be hazardous, particularly for small dogs, so these should be removed.
Dogs can enjoy prawns:
- As an ingredient in tinned or dry food
- As a snack or special treat
