Can my dog eat coconut?

Sometimes. Coconut contains triglycerides which may cause discomfort and bloating. Many dogs can eat coconut with no problem, but other dogs may be more sensitive and allergic to the triglycerides. The safest option is to consult with your vet before giving your dog any coconut.

If your dog doesn’t taste coconut that may have fallen accidentally to the floor, you should take that as a sign that your dog knows enough to avoid it. Untreated, bloating can be fatal.


If you want to share coconut with your dog, some experts suggest coconut oil as a replacement. But, again, you should speak with a veterinarian first.
