Can dogs eat almonds

Let’s know about Can dogs eat almonds. Whatever you are eating, your dog suddenly craves some of it. ever happened to you? Yes, welcome to the club made up of just about every dog ​​owner! No matter what it is, your little friend wants in on the action!

But, unfortunately, and especially when it comes to the food we give our dogs, it doesn’t always work like that. Everything we eat can be safely eat by dogs.

And when it comes to nuts, this is a very important and delicate topic, as some types of nuts can be toxic to your dog.

Nuts and Toxicity in Dogs

Two examples of such nuts that are toxic to dogs are walnuts and macadamia nuts, while two examples of nuts that are safe for dogs are cashews and peanuts.

(If you want to learn more about the facts before feeding your dog cashews or peanuts, check out these two quick reads we wrote about earlier – this article about cashews for dogs and peanuts for dogs about this article).

Certain types of nuts can cause serious problems in your dog such as an upset stomach, to dangerous events such as a toxic poisoning and an obstruction in their digestive system to all kinds of serious issues such as the need for surgery to save their lives.

Not to mention that the average cost of dealing with poison from nuts in your dog is over $400, I’m sure that’s something you’re not looking forward to trying right now, right?

(Here’s a nice little infographic we found from Dog UK about nuts and dogs – check it out, it’s very interesting and easy on the eyes.)

So, with all this talk about nuts in general, what’s the take on almonds? Can dogs eat almonds or should they be kept as far away as possible?

Can Dogs Eat Almonds? short answer

The short answer is no [sorry if I burst my bubbles there

While almonds are not necessarily toxic to dogs (like the other nuts mentioned above), they can still cause a whole world of health problems for your dog.

This means that you should not intentionally feed your dog any almonds under any circumstances.

Almonds are wonder food for humans, but dogs don’t get any of the nutritional benefits that we get out of them.

And add to all the potential health hazards for your dog if you eat almonds, there’s really no reason for you to feed them.

Why are almonds not safe for dogs?

Just so it’s clear one more time, almonds are not “toxic” to your dog in the full sense of the word, but can cause a number of potential problems nonetheless.

– Stomach upset: Since your dog cannot digest them easily, almonds can upset your dog’s stomach and give gastric intestinal upset

– Prevention: Since dogs don’t chew on their food like humans, eating whole almonds could potentially block their esophagus, the stomach windpipe, which could potentially be fatal for your dog.

Pancreatitis: Since almonds are rich in fat, they can cause pancreatitis in dogs. You can tell if your dog has pancreatitis if they begin to vomit, have diarrhea, lose appetite and show weakness and lethargy.

As soon as you suspect that your dog has organized pancreatitis, you should have them checked out by your veterinarian so that they can properly treat them and so the disease does not develop into something fatal.

– Water retention: especially true if your dog eats salted almonds. Water retention becomes a terrible problem for dogs that have heart disease, as the combination of the two can be fatal and lead to the death of your dog.

Dogs love the smell and taste of salted almonds, and will eat them when they have the slightest chance, so it is your duty to ensure that almonds of any kind are kept as far away from your dog as possible.

Not to mention the fact that salted almonds can cause sodium ion poisoning in your dog.

Tomatoes are another human food that causes water retention in dogs, so you should be careful about such issues.

What to do if your dog eats almonds

First of all, if your dog finds his way to some almonds and consumes some, please don’t panic, there’s really no need.

As we established above, some almonds will not be toxic to your dog. Just do your best to make sure that doesn’t happen.

If your dog had some almonds and you didn’t choke them after some time because of an obstacle or some other false signal, you have nothing to worry about.

But, if you think or know that your dog has just eaten too many almonds and/or has any signs of illness or something is wrong, immediate action and treatment is needed.

You must immediately stop whatever you are doing and call your veterinarian, they will tell you what course of action is necessary from there.

Your veterinarian will probably induce your dog to vomit to relieve the risk of poisoning by almonds.

Can Dogs Eat Almond Butter?

As we covered peanut butter in the article discussing whether or not dogs can eat peanuts, it is only logical that we can or should not eat almond butter in this article.

And, the good news is that just like peanut butter is good for your dog in moderate amounts, almond butter is also good for your dog in moderation.

Almond butter is a goldmine of vitamin E just waiting to be tapped by your dog, which does all sorts of health wonders for his body.

If you want to feed your dog almond butter, make sure you do your proper research and stay away from brands that use artificial sweeteners (especially Xylitol, which can prove fatal if your dog consumes them) could).

Xylitol is a deadly substance that we’ve talked about before, as in this article about what types of ice cream dogs can eat, you need to know your facts about it.

You want to make sure that you only feed your dog 100% natural, plain, unsweetened and unsalted almond butter.
