Can dogs eat ham? It's a question that you may have asked yourself when considering what treats to give your beloved pooch.

1. Can I Feed My Dog Ham Products

The good news is that you can give your dog several ham products, including ham and ham bones. Ham, being a meat product, isn't dangerous for dogs to eat. However, it doesn't contain optimum nutritional value either. High in sodium and fat, ham should be given as a treat in moderation. It is also important to monitor your dog after you have given him some ham. If he vomits, call your vet for advice and avoid all ham products in the future.
