Can Dogs Eat Napa Cabbage? When it is or isn’t an Emergency

Yes, it’s safe for dogs to eat napa cabbage and other varieties of cabbage (such as red cabbage) as long as it’s in moderation. A little bit of napa cabbage can be good for a dog’s diet. Napa cabbages, for example, are known for being rich in antioxidants and dietary fiber. They are also a source of other important nutrients for dogs such as folic acid and vitamin C.

Dogs can eat napa cabbage both raw and cooked (without any seasoning). We would, however, recommend giving your dog cooked napa cabbage. One concern with raw napa cabbages is the presence of thiocyanate, a natural compound that may increase the risk of hypothyroidism.

Dogs may also find it a little more difficult to digest raw napa cabbages. The best way to serve napa cabbage is to steam it without any seasoning then to cut it into tiny pieces. You can serve the cabbage on its own or mix it in with the dog’s regular food.
