It's normal for dogs to try and sneak a few bites of human food while their owners aren't looking. Unfortunately, some of the foods humans can safely enjoy are highly toxic to dogs. Chocolate, grapes, and onions are just a few common foods which could cause a dog to end up in the veterinarian's office. Almonds are a healthy food choice for humans because they are high in healthy fats, protein, and vitamin E, but are they safe for dogs?


1. Are Almonds Dangerous For Dogs?

Almonds aren't poisonous for dogs. If a dog manages to eat a small amount, they will be fine. However, almonds can cause gastrointestinal problems in dogs. They may experience vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, flatulence, and appear lethargic. The dog may go off their food. If the symptoms are severe, they should visit their veterinarian.
