Ah, celery. It’s such a versatile food. It gives a satisfying crunch to a tuna fish sandwich. Swap some peanut butter and a few raisins on it, and it becomes a summertime treat for kids of all ages (and some adults, too). With the help of a juicer, it can add a healthy punch to every morning.
However, there’s one question that every vegetable/dog lover out there should be asking the next time a hungry pooch stares at those green stalks: Can my dog eat this?
The Verdict: Can Dogs Eat Celery?
Here’s the good news: yes, celery is perfectly fine for dogs to munch on, with a few qualifications (as usual). It’s a healthy, high-fiber, vitamin-rich treat that should be suitable for all dogs. As an added bonus, it may even improve your dog’s breath. Go ahead and try a few celery stalks if your dog has the type of breath that stops you in your tracks.
Just remember a couple of things before you give your dog celery. First, double-check with your veterinarian to make sure your dog doesn’t have any special dietary restrictions. Second, be sure to cut the celery into bite-sized pieces to reduce the risk of choking.
Aside from those considerations, feel free to drop pieces of celery for your dog whenever you like!
Protecting Your Pet
As seen with the close scrutiny of their food, any pet owner’s goal is to keep their furry friend as safe as they can. Pet health insurance, and, in this case, dog insurance, can make sure you have rock-solid financial support just in case something does happen.
