What happens if a dog eats Brussel sprouts? A moderate amount “clears the pipes,” so to speak. Too much and your dog can suffer from stomach upset and diarrhea. Even small and moderate amounts of Brussels sprouts will cause flatulence. And while it may send you running from the room, it’s not harmful to your dog.
Is it OK for dogs to eat raw Brussel sprouts? Yes. Brussel sprouts are rich in fiber and antioxidants, which help reduce inflammation in the body and improve overall blood circulation. They’re also loaded with vitamins, including vitamins K and C, which are good for a dog’s immune system and bone health.
How much Brussel sprouts can a dog eat? It’s best to limit a serving of Brussels sprouts to a moderate amount. One to four pieces depending on the size of your dog and the size of the Brussels sprouts is plenty. For large sprouts as pictured here, half of one for small dogs and up to two for a large dog would be plenty.
Do Brussel sprouts make dogs fart? Raw Brussel sprouts will make dogs farts because they contain a chemical called isothiocyanate. While isothiocyanate does help the dog’s digestive system, it also comes at the price of stinky dog farts.
