Before you feed your dog celery, you should make sure that you cut them down into small pieces, so your dog can easily chew. You should remove any leaves and the strings before giving some to your dog. Like many vegetables, dogs can have a hard time digesting the raw celery, unless it is pureed or cooked a little. It tends to pass through their digestive tract without being much changed.

Any celery you feed your dog should be served to them raw, cooked, boiled or whatever else you could think of. You may even cook some celery, mashing it up a little and adding some to a portion of dog food.
