Cabbage is a leafy green vegetable that is often chopped up and added to salads and other culinary dishes.
Cabbage is one of the more healthy veggies available which makes it a great option for humans to eat.
However can dogs eat cabbage as well?
Yes, but with a few considerations in mind.
It needs to be given to your dog in moderation as it can cause flatulence in your dog.
Secondly it is best if you slightly cook the cabbage to reduce the risks of the natural compound Thiocyanate which is found in cabbage. It can possibly affect your dog’s thyroid gland and hypothyroidism is possible but unlikely.
Therefore if you slightly cook the cabbage this reduces this risk. Make sure to not overcook the cabbage though as it will remove all the nutrients that are good for your dog.
One of the good benefits of cabbages for dogs is that it can help with their skin.
Therefore yes dogs can eat cabbage but it can cause gas and should be slightly cooked.
