Can Dogs Eat Parsley Safely?

Parsley

Yes, it’s safe for dogs to eat parsley in tiny amounts. Parsley could be beneficial for your dog’s health because it is packed with vitamin A and vitamin C. Parsley also contains folic acid, which is considered an essential vitamin for household pets. Folic acid may help dogs maintain normal metabolic functions such as red blood cell production.

Parsley can be enjoyed by dogs in a number of ways. We recommend sprinkling a tiny bit of parsley on top of your dog’s regular food or you could even make your own dog biscuits that include a bit of chopped parsley. It’s very important that you only serve parsley to your dog in small amounts. An excessive amount of parsley could make your dog sick due to the presence of a compound called furanocoumarin.
