Popcorn for Dogs?

popcornIs it safe to let dogs eat popcorn?

A very small amount of popped popcorn that does not have butter, salt, or other seasonings added can be okay for your dog. I would not let any dog eat a large quantity. Also, avoid letting your dog snack on unpopped kernels. There are better snack options for your dog than popcorn. Small amounts of unsweetened Cheerios or shredded wheat are fine, as are many fruits and vegetables. Certainly feel free to speak with your veterinarian about healthy snacks and treats for your pup.
