As a dog parent, you’ve probably wondered, “what foods are safe for my dog?”. Luckily, many human foods are safe in moderation for dogs, and they can even make for a special treat for your furry friend. Cucumbers make a great addition to your diet, but are they safe for dogs to eat?

Are cucumbers safe for dogs?

Yes, cucumbers are a safe, healthy treat for your dog. They are very low in calories and high in Vitamin K – an essential nutrient for dogs. Cucumbers can be a great snack to keep your dogs hydrated, considering they are 96% water.

How much is too much?

It’s important not to overfeed your dog cucumbers because it can lead to gastrointestinal upset. But never fear, it’s unlikely much will come from overfeeding. But be careful not to feed your dog too big of pieces, as they can be choking hazards, especially for small dogs and quick eaters.

Cucumber is a fantastic, healthy option for your pet to enjoy. Whether it helps them cool down or perk up, you can’t go wrong with this food.
