In general, it’s safe for dogs to eat store-bought button mushrooms. These mushrooms can be offered both cooked and raw. When cooked, it’s important to serve them plain by not adding any additional seasonings. We also recommend cooking the button mushrooms with non-frying methods, such as roasting and steaming.

The occasional button mushrooms (as a treat) could be good for your dog’s health. These mushrooms offer a number of health benefits such as containing immune-supporting nutrients and improving gut health. Button mushrooms are also relatively low in calories so you don’t have to worry about potential weight issues when dogs are fed these white mushrooms.

The above only applies to store-bought, edible mushrooms. We wouldn’t recommend letting your dog eat wild button mushrooms unless you are a mushroom expert. Other mushroom varieties that may have toxic properties could be easily mistaken for button mushrooms.
