Garden rocket, also called arugula, is a popular cruciferous vegetable (related to Brussel sprouts, broccoli and kale). It’s used in everything from sauces, to casseroles and is packed with nutrients. You’ll find garden rocket contains protein, Vitamins A, K, C, folate, calcium, and more.

Can my dog eat garden rocket? Yes—your fur baby can enjoy this healthy vegetable, but in moderation. It’s been known to cause stomach upset and other digestive issues if eaten in large amounts or eaten too often. The plant is non-toxic to dogs. Be sure to cook the arugula before giving it to your dog, to make it more easily digested. Your dog may enjoy raw garden rocket, but most people find their dogs like the veggie best when it’s been cooked, chopped and added to their pup’s regular dog food. Can my puppy eat garden rocket? Yes, but only in moderation. If your puppy ate too much arugula or ate it too often, he could develop stomach problems (vomiting) and/or diarrhea.
