Can corn make dogs sick?
While small amounts of corn are safe for a dog to ingest, giving your dog an ear of corn can be dangerous.
If your dog is determined enough (which let's face it, most dogs are) they will eat the cob and all.
The cob can be a choking hazard and can cause intestinal blockage.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
