Is it OK to feed dogs canned tuna? Is canned tuna good for dogs? Yes, you can feed your dog canned tuna, as long as you do so in moderation and only infrequently, and you choose the version that’s packed in fresh water instead of oil or salted water.

What happens if a dog eats tuna? “Tuna can contain high levels of mercury,” Whittenburg says. “If a dog consumes large amounts, it could cause mercury poisoning.” And mercury poisoning can cause irreversible neurological and renal damage.
