Is Okra toxic to dogs?

Species: Dog
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age: 11-15 years
Without thinking, I gave my dog a small amount (appx 1/4 cup) of oven fried okra.
Should I be concerned?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Okra is not toxic to dogs. I wouldn't recommend regularly giving anything fried to a dog, but it is unlikely that you've done any harm!
