Can Dogs Eat Capsicum?

The answer is, yes, dogs can eat capsicum (also sometimes known as red peppers and bell peppers). Capsicum is not only tasty and packed with nutritional value for your dog's health, but they are also non-toxic to your dog, unlike other vegetables you need to look out for, so you can include these in your dog's daily diet.

If you are on a healthy kick and you buy bell peppers from the local shops, you can share them with your dog so you can both have a healthy snack. Dog owners and their furry companions can benefit from eating foods packed with nutritional value.

Like any animal, including humans, dogs need to get the proper amounts of vitamins and nutrients in their diets; this is one reason that bell peppers and other vegetables are a good thing to feed your dog. Red bell peppers, in particular, have high levels of vitamins like vitamin C and many antioxidants.

So, the next time you're at the supermarket, and you're buying vegetables for your salad of healthy evening meals, throw in a bit of capsicum for your dog as well. But remember, like cucumbers, there is a choking hazard and the chance of an upset stomach if dogs eat bell peppers too often.

It goes without saying, but chili peppers are best avoided - not only can they give your pup a sore stomach, but they are also toxic.
