Cauliflower Rice is Safe for Dogs to Eat in Moderation
Yes, it’s safe for dogs to eat cauliflower rice as long as it’s in moderation. Cauliflowers are nutritionally-dense vegetables that will offer a wide range of important nutrients to dogs. The cauliflower rice is simply chopped-up pieces of the cauliflower floret so dogs will still gain the same health benefits.
Despite the health benefits, it’s important that you only let your dog eat a small amount of cauliflower rice because this cruciferous vegetable has a reputation of causing gas. If you don’t want your dog to become a fart machine then make sure the cauliflower rice is not a daily staple of your dog’s diet.
We would also recommend serving cooked cauliflower rice instead of raw ones. Cauliflower is one of many vegetables that has goitrogenic properties, which can cause disruptions to the production of thyroid hormones. Cooking the cauliflower rice will reduce the effects of this.
