Dogs Can Eat Sweet Corns in Moderation

Yes, it’s okay for dogs to eat sweet corn as long as it’s in small, infrequent amounts. As plain as they may look, sweetcorn does offer a bit of nutritional benefit. For example, they contain dietary fiber, vitamin C, and magnesium. Your dogs, however, should already be getting most of the nutrient they require from the regular dog food so they wouldn’t necessarily miss out from not eating sweet corns.

When you serve sweet corn to dogs, it’s important that you only serve the kernels. Don’t ever let your dog eat the cob as they can pose a major choking or obstruction risk. We would also be careful with feeding your dog canned sweet corn. Some of these canned products may contain additives that aren’t healthy for dogs.
