Q. Why is one permitted to serve kitnios to a pet on Pesach?
A. Ashkenazim have a custom to not eat kitnios but are permitted to own and benefit from kitnios. (Rema 453:1 and Mishnah Berurah 453:10) Therefore, they can serve kitnios to pets, and must only make sure that there is no chametz in the feed.
