Can Dogs Eat Celery?

The short answer: Yes, but in limited quantities.

The long answer: Celery is a low-calorie vegetable that can be fed to your dog as a treat. However, due to the stringy consistency of celery, your dog may end up with stringy feces that’ll be difficult for him to pass. Too much of it may also cause your dog to pee more than usual.

How to feed celery to your dog: Wash the celery properly. Remove the leaves, and cut it into small, chewable pieces to prevent choking.

Here are three ideas for celery treats your dog will love:

  1. Freshen up your dog’s breath by giving it to him as is!  
  2. Come up with homemade dog food made up of celery, carrots, broccoli, and brown rice.
  3. Your dog will love the smell and taste of this hearty chicken casserole which has a stalk of celery in it.

In summary: Low in fat and cholesterol, celery can be given to your dog as an occasional crunchy treat. Aside from celery, discover which other vegetables dogs can safely eat in our “can dogs eat” category.
