Yes, dogs can eat spaghetti squash but with certain caveats and restrictions. The most important part is to make sure that all seeds and skins of the spaghetti squash are removed before you feed them this winter vegetable. The flesh of the spaghetti squash is the part that’s safe for dogs to eat.

It’s also important to cut the spaghetti squash into smaller pieces and cook it so that it becomes soft and mushy. This reduces the likelihood of the spaghetti squash pieces causing blockage in the dog’s intestinal tract. Last but not least, make sure to serve it without any seasoning.
