Corn, also called maize, is a cereal grain many of us are very familiar with. Do you enjoy corn on the cob? Then you know all about corn! It’s a healthy vegetable that offers lots of fiber, B Vitamins, and more.

Can my dog eat corn? Yes, but only in moderation. Corn isn’t toxic to dogs, but it’s hard to digest (for both dogs and their humans). Your dog could experience some digestive issues if he eats too much corn very often. Keep in mind that your dog should never be allowed to chew the whole corn cob. The cob is not digestible, and if eaten, could cause your dog to develop a bowel obstruction. This is a very serious condition that can only be treated by a vet. Can my puppy eat corn? Yes, but again only in moderation—served occasionally only in small amounts. If your puppy ate a little corn, it should be OK.
