Can Dogs Eat Peanuts?

Peanut butter is a popular taste for dog treats, and you might already be giving your pooch dog-safe peanut butter in a tongue-clucking hollowed-out toy or bone.   

As a result, "it's likely for you to assume that peanuts are safe for dogs to eat," said Dr. Claudine Sievert, a veterinarian and veterinary nutritionist from Kansas.   

Some peanuts are okay for dogs, but not all of them are. Read on to find out everything you need to know about feeding your dog peanuts.  

Peanuts can be a healthy choice because they are high in protein, vitamin B-6, good fats, vitamin E, and niacin, according to Sievert.1. However, not all peanuts are suitable for dogs, and there are some risks involved.  

The only peanuts that dogs should consume are unsalted and dry-roasted. "Salted peanuts contain more sodium than your dog needs, so they are unhealthy," says Sievert.  

However, if you drop a couple of salted peanuts on the floor by accident and your dog vacuums them up before you can, they will be safe.  

Honey-roasted peanuts, as well as other flavored peanuts, are not suitable for dogs.  

Boiled peanuts, a Southern staple, may be fine if they're plain and unsalted, but most of these treats have a lot of salt or seasonings like Cajun flavoring, cayenne pepper, and other spices that can upset your dog's stomach.
