Can dogs eat nuts?
No, dogs shouldn’t eat nuts.
Certain types of nuts can contain toxic substances and induce an upset stomach or an intestinal obstruction in dog’s gastrointestinal tract.
These scenarios can lead to emergency surgery and unpredicted veterinary expenses.
Additionally, the shells of nuts are associated with the risk of tearing gastrointestinal tissue as they move through dog’s digestive tract.
The majority of nuts have high quantities of fats.
The fats can induce vomiting and diarrhea, and potentially pancreatitis in dogs.
Lots of commercially-available nuts are also wrapped with salt and other chemicals, which can lead to dehydration or even be poisonous to dogs.
