Some "human food" treats are safe for dogs, but many aren't. So what about olives? Are they safe to feed to dogs?
Some foods in your fridge or pantry aren't poisonous to your dog, but you shouldn't give them at random. Olives are an example.
The top veterinarian of Petco, Whitney Miller, DVM, MBA, DACVPM, advises that if your dog eats a simple, unsalted, and pitted olive, they will likely be alright.
Even though olives are rich in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants, you shouldn't feed them to your dog on a daily basis.
Although olives can be a delightful and healthful snack, there are a number of hazards associated with them that make them best avoided.
Pits can harm teeth and induce choking. Olives filled with cheese and preserved in olive oil can upset your dog's tummy.
Onions and garlic, both of which are harmful to dogs, are sometimes used as stuffing of olives.
