Default Is Parsley bad for Maltese?

Hi SM Family,

My wife started to pay more close attention to the ingredients of the treats we've been giving to our boy Biscuit. One of his favorites is the Trader Joe's Chicken and Brown Rice stick. However the ingredients indicate there is parsley included.

Is parsley safe for Maltese?

Love and hugs to everyone!
Vinh and Ann

Parsley itself is not harmful. I do wonder where the chicken comes from that is put into the treats. I am sure you have heard of all the Chicken Jerkey Treats making animals very sick and sometimes causing death. I know your treats come from Trader Joe's...I love the store myself but have never gotten any dog products from them. I would do a little investigating on where the chicken comes from.

I hope Bicuit is feeling good.

I make home cooked food for our little girl, and always add a dash of parsley. Parsley is perfectly safe for dogs. It's rich in vitamins, potassium and other minerals. It helps improve digestion and it's biggest bonus? It combats bad doggy breath

Me too... I home cook. Parsley is a common ingredient I use.

Grace LOVES herbs and spices... so I cook for them and me at the same time (I do onion separately). Parsley is one of her favorites

A small list of safe herbs for dogs. Both of mine love watercress!

I had never heard of it being harmful, but the ASPCA lists it as toxic to dogs:

ASPCA | Spring Parsley

Not sure if there is a certain quantity is toxic, must be because a lot of dog recipes contain parsley.

Looking through the list, I was also surprised to see Pointsettia as relatively safe for dogs.

Whoa! I think Spring Parsley is different from regular parsley! This specific list of forbidden plants says "Spring."

I think it is confusing because they list Petroselinum crispum as the plant, which is flat leaf parsley, but there is another plant known as spring parsley but it is not common or edible. What is bad about the site is that they do not specify quantities. If small amounts of parsley was dangerous, I think we would already know it.
