Oregano is safe for dogs

Oregano is safe in moderation although it is a gastrointestinal irritant and can cause mild vomiting and diarrhea in dogs. It contains antioxidants and has antimicrobial properties. Oregano is best used fresh or dry if giving it to your dog. Essential oils can cause liver damage and other problems depending on concentration, so it’s best to avoid oregano oils.
