Can dogs eat Lobster brain?

can dogs eat lobster brainNo


  • Contrary to popular belief, "lobster brain" is not the brain of the lobster. The soft green stuff in lobster is tomalley, a digestive gland. It has a creamy texture with an intense flavor. It's considered a delicacy.
  • Lobsters do not filter-feed, and they may consume shellfish infected with toxins and proteins that accumulate in the lobster brain, so there's a risk of contracting paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxins. Symptoms include excessive drooling, weakness, vomiting, and unstable walking.
  • This lobster paste may trigger allergic reactions in some dogs.
