Can dogs eat prickly pear?


No, they don’t eat prickly pear cactus. Instead, they have a few small spines that they get from the surface of the plant.

“A thorn prick on the paw is the most common injury you can get. It can sometimes be pnful, and they are a common thorn prick that most dogs get,” says Dr. Jennifer Smith-Stewart, a University of California-Davis veterinarian who has evaluated many dogs for zooming.

Zooming is defined as injuring, tearing, or puncturing a soft-tissue structure (skin or tissue) to reduce movement.

To prevent further injuries to your dog, keep them off prickly pear cacti and teach them to keep their paws away from it.
