Can Dogs Eat Broccoli?

Like humans, vegetables are always a healthy option for a treat and as a part of a meal. Most dog foods usually have a mix of fruits and vegetables in the ingredients. While some vegetables can be toxic to dogs, like onions; there are many vegetables that are healthy for dogs, like broccoli.

Yes, dogs can eat broccoli. As long as it doesn't have any extra seasonings, oils or other additions mixed with it, dogs can eat broccoli cooked or raw. Any seasonings or additions could irritate your dog's gastrointestinal system.
