Can Dogs Eat Mustard Safely?

No, you should avoid feeding your dog mustard. The yellow condiment is made from mustard seeds, which can be problematic for dogs. Mustard seeds contain chemicals that may cause inflammation along the dog’s stomach and intestinal tract. A visit to the emergency vet could be necessary if your dog accidentally eats a large amount of mustard.

A tiny amount of mustard isn’t likely to be dangerous for a dog but you should keep a close eye in case your dog starts to exhibit symptoms like vomiting and diarrhea. It’s important that condiments like mustard and ketchup are stored in a place that’s not within a dog’s reach.

There are many other human foods aside from mustard that dog owners should not give to their pets. You can check out our pet food database to quickly find what those human foods are.
