Are soy nuts bad for dogs?

Species: Dog
Breed: Yorkie
Age: 2-5 years
Are roasted soynuts safe for dogs?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Soy nuts are not toxic to dogs. However, it's not something I would recommend giving on a regular basis or in large amounts. They could cause some intestinal gas. Also, many soy nuts are covered in salt which is not healthy.

If your dog eats one or two, that is perfectly ok. But I wouldn't make them a regular part of his diet!

Dr. Marie.
