Can dogs eat almonds?

“Dogs should not eat any nuts!” That’s too alarmist.

Almonds are not toxic for dogs, it’s no problem that dogs eat a few almonds.

Almonds are rich in monounsaturated fats, which are relatively safe fats for dogs. Studies have proven that inmonounsaturated fats can improve heart health and protect the heart blood tube and the brain blood tube. Beyond that, nuts like almonds with skins on have more fiber than some without.

In fact, almonds are better than most nuts for dogs, but this isn’t mean dogs can eat many almonds. Dogs can’t digest too much fat, eating too much fat can increase the risk of pancreatitis for dogs and cause gastrointestinal discomfort. The almonds are usually roasted and salted, too much sodium consumption is bad for dog’s health.

On the whole, I don’t recommend to feed your dogs with nuts, because most of the dog owners don’t know which nut is toxic. If you do want to feed with nuts, just choose almonds and cashews. But you need to know they are only as snacks, not to feed too much.
