Can Dogs Eat Peppers?

Yes, when it comes to sweet bell peppers, they are a perfectly safe snack for pups, as long as they’re eaten in moderation. Red, green, yellow, or orange — toss a couple pieces your dog’s way next time you’re looking to add some beneficial vitamins and nutrients into his diet.

Can My Dog Eat Spicy Peppers?

No, unlike the refreshing bell peppers, spicy peppers – including jalapenos and chili peppers – should not be given to dogs. If your pup has stolen one from the table, then he should be fun, but pay careful attention to be sure he’s okay.

If you have other concerns regarding your dog’s diet, we recommend contacting your veterinarian.
