Generally dogs can eat cooked mushrooms, but always check with your vet.

Whenever I write about mushrooms I like to talk about this, because I find that my readers are curious, Should dogs eat mushrooms?

According to my research, Mushrooms sold in grocery stores are generally harmless to dogs.

However, we often eat mushrooms cooked with butter, garlic, onions, and oils, which are not great for dogs to eat, and can cause digestive issues.

A dog’s diet doesn’t actually require the nutrients from mushrooms, so avoid that and give them a treat they’ll enjoy a bit more.

I find that my dog turns his nose up at any sort of mushroom!

Of course, the real risk with mushrooms and dogs is when dogs try to eat wild mushrooms they find outside, so always watch out for that.


Mushrooms don’t actually freeze well, and that’s why I like to keep canned mushrooms in my pantry. Canning keeps the mushrooms at the right texture for adding to recipes or cooking.


Canned mushrooms are already cooked, right? So why should we cook them?

This is a great question because there really isn’t a need to cook canned mushrooms, but cooking them makes them SO much better.

This is because canned mushrooms are very watery. They soak up the maximum amount of liquid while they are in their little cans.

Cooking dries the mushrooms out a bit, giving them a more realistic texture. Cooking also gives you an opportunity to add seasonings and oil to really amp up the flavor of your mushrooms.
