Can dogs have cooked onions?

Hey fam

Are onions exclusively toxic when raw, or can dogs also consume cooked onions? I am aware that onions are harmful to dogs, but I am not sure if boiling them makes them okay.

Hey there! Unfortunately, onions are bad news for dogs no matter how you cook them. Raw or cooked, fried or boiled, all parts of the onion (including the flesh, leaves, juice, and even onion powder) are toxic to our canine friends.

The reason is a compound in onions called N-propyl disulfide that can damage a dog’s red blood cells and lead to anemia. It’s important to keep all onions out of reach of your pup.

No, onions are naturally bad for dogs, onions contain some compounds that can be very toxic to dogs which can damage the dogs red blood cells and cause a condition for the dog known hemolytic anemia.

All parts of the onion plant are toxic to dogs, including the flesh, leaves, juice, and processed powders. Whether raw or cooked, fried or powdered, onions and the rest of the allium family, which includes shallots, leeks, chives, and garlic, are harmful to dogs.
