Dogs and stinkbugs

Do you think it's ok for dogs to eat stink bugs?

  • Our dogs have each tried to eat a stinkbug once and that was all it took for them to learn to steer clear of them, although they will still point them out to us (gotta love a lab/pointer...lol). I doubt eating them would hurt your pet, but I don't think you have to worry about your dog eating them on a regular basis, either, once one lets its stink off in your pet's mouth.

  • Ours won't go near them. He doesn't like millipedes either. But he will eat grasshoppers and crickets.

  • I really do not think this is a good addition to their diet.
