Serena Williams ate her dog's food and lived to tell about it

Serena Williams was not dogging it in her Italian Open match Thursday, but she’d have a good excuse if she was.

Williams revealed Wednesday night that she tasted her dog’s food — from her swanky hotel’s dog food menu — a decision that she almost immediately regretted.

“I ran to the toilet like I was going to pass out,” Williams said in a series of Snapchats, which she prefaced by saying she knew she was going to get dogged for her decision.

But, she says, she was tempted to taste it after looking at the the previous day’s doggie dining options.

“Yesterday he had the beef and vegetables and I promise you, I was like ‘That looks so good’,” Williams said. “It was like fresh greens and boiled chicken and beef that was seared, it was seared tenderly and it was just perfection.”

Chip, her three-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, gobbled up the grub and on Wednesday, his meal — the 15 Euro salmon and rice — looked so good she had to taste it.

“I’m like, what the heck, I’m going to try it, it looks good,” Williams said. “So I ate a spoonful. Don’t judge me, I ate spoonful!”

But two hours later, Williams was passing judgement on herself, saying that food fought back.

“It did taste weird, it was a little, I don’t know, it tasted a little like a house-cleaner kind of thing,” she said. “I don’t think it’s consumable for humans and they should’ve wrote that!”

They didn’t, but she did. Williams showed the menu in the video and at the bottom she scrawled “If you are human, do not eat this. It makes you sh*t!!”

There were no after-effects by Thursday, though, as Williams rallied back from 3-5 down in the opening set to beat Christina McHale 7-6 (7), 6-1.

No matter how delicious dog food looks or smells, it’s still dog food.
