Can Dogs Eat Couscous? When it is or isn’t an Emergency
Yes, most dogs will be okay with eating a small amount of couscous as long as it’s prepared plain and served in moderation. Couscous is a healthy whole grain that’s packed with nutrients like vitamin B-6, magnesium, and iron.
Couscous, however, is made from wheat so dogs that have wheat or gluten sensitivities should avoid being given couscous. As we mentioned before, only serve plainly-cooked couscous. Don’t cook this grain with seasonings or ingredients like garlic, onions, and common spices.
We believe the best way to serve it is by mixing a small amount of couscous into your dog’s regular wet food. Again, think of this as more of a treat than as a replacement for the dog’s regular diet.
