Can my dog eat lobster?

Yes. Rich in antioxidants, phosphorus, vitamins B12 and B3 (also called niacin), lobster can be a healthful addition to your dog’s diet when cooked, shelled, and served in moderation.

Lobster shells and legs can get stuck in the digestive tract of dogs so it’s important that canines only consume lobster meat, not shells or legs.

Though low in calories, carbohydrates, and fat, lobster – and shrimp and crayfish –  is high in cholesterol. Consequently, it’s suggested that too much lobster meat can be an unhealthy addition to your dog’s diet. Most veterinarians suggest that dogs should be limited to a small serving of lobster per meal to avoid adding too much cholesterol or mercury to their diet.
