Crab meat is safe for dogs

Cooked crab meat is safe to feed to your dog. Crab meat is high in protein and a good source of vitamins C and B12, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, and selenium. Boil or steam the crab plain and limit using any additional ingredients that may be harmful to your dog. Raw crab may contain parasites or bacteria which can be harmful to your dog. Remove the shell since it can be hard and sharp which can cause an obstruction or damage the gastrointestinal tract.
