Dog Safe Easter Foods

Easter is a time for new beginnings. As those of you who have been with us for a while have no doubt noted, NWBR had been kinda coasting along for a while. Well, things are about to change for the better: more activity, more excitement, more LIFE, and hopefully more boxers saved. Please bear with us as we go through our own journey to become a better, more engaging rescue than before.

To kick things off, here is an excellent article by the good folks at PUPFORD.COM about:


Those who celebrate Easter usually do so with a few main traditions: egg hunts, family gatherings, and – most importantly – food.

And with so many of us including our dogs in our Easter celebrations (see exhibit A below), we want to make sure we are including them in a safe way.

Unfortunately, one of the most common problems that land dogs in the emergency vet on holidays is the ingestion of toxic food.

With Easter quickly approaching, we want to help families have an egg-celent time, without any-bunny getting sick from eating something dangerous or toxic.

Ok – got the puns out of our system, time to get back to business.

Today we’ll discuss Easter foods that are safe to share with our dogs (and those that are NOT!) as well as a few popular recipes for special Easter meals to share with our four-legged family members.

There are a good number of foods on your Eater table that are safe to share with your dog – if prepared in a dog-friendly way.

So what can you share with your pooch?


Veggies are great to share with your dog because they are low-calorie and full of nutrients. Vegetables likely to make an appearance on your holiday dinner plate that you can share with your dog include:

  • Carrots

  • Cucumbers

  • Celery

  • Zucchini

  • Green beans

  • Broccoli

  • Cauliflower

  • Brussels sprouts

  • Peas

  • Potatoes/
