Can my dog eat squash?

Yes, dogs can eat squash that is properly prepared.

Loaded with vitamins, dietary fiber, phytonutrients, squash not only provide a nutritious snack, but a 2005 study indicated that squash and other yellow-orange vegetables like carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potato can help reduce bladder cancer. The same study found similar positive results for dogs when they ate leafy green vegetables like spinach, collard greens, parsley, Swiss chard, turnip greens, beet greens, kale, and dandelion greens.

The fleshy fruit of the squash is most commonly used, ideally unsalted and roasted.

Do not feed any part of the squash rind, stem or leaves to dogs, however. Only the inside of the squash is edible.
