Mushrooms Dogs Can Eat
In terms of mushrooms dogs can eat, it’s actually quite simple. If it’s a mushroom you can eat, your dog can eat it too.
The very best mushrooms for your dog are what are known as medicinal mushrooms. These include Cordyceps, Maitake, Reishi, Shiitake and Turkey Tail mushrooms.
But if you can’t find these, white button, portobello, chestnut or closed cup mushrooms will do just fine.

I don’t know about you, but my dogs mean everything to me. With the help of my resident dog nutritionist, I seem to spend every waking moment thinking about how I can make their lives better. And that includes extending their lives for as long as possible!
It’s no secret I make homemade food for my dogs. I feed them the widest possible variety of fresh natural ingredients. That includes all the mushrooms dogs can eat, including those mentioned above.
Mushrooms are packed full of vitamins and nutrients including beta glucans, flavonoids, prebiotics, digestive enzymes and antioxidants. One of their most well-known benefits is the amazing boost they can give to the canine immune system. They also have anti-aging capabilities. Digestive health and anti-cancer benefits are also good reasons to add them to your dog’s diet.
When the likes of button mushrooms are on sale at my local food wholesaler, I buy them by the kilo. I use some if I’m cooking that day, but most I dehydrate and bag for when I might need them. Don’t tell my dogs, but I even snack on their dehydrated mushrooms occasionally. For me personally, it’s my favourite way to eat mushrooms. They make a really tasty, healthy and nutritious, low-calorie snack.
So I’d recommend adding mushrooms to your dog’s diet. They can help your dog live a longer, healthier life. And isn’t that what all of us want for a companion animal who gives us so much and who asks for so little in return?
If you make homemade food for your dog, you'll need to supplement to make that food complete. My natural supplements are made in-house with canine nutritionist approved 100% natural ingredients with no additives or preservatives of any kind.
