What happens if my dog eats almond butter? While almond butter can be a nutritious occasional dog treat, it has a high fat content and can cause an upset stomach. Too much almond butter can lead to gastrointestinal distress and weight gain or obesity in dogs, so feed your dog almond butter in small quantities.
How much almond butter can a dog eat? Almond butter isn’t toxic to your dog assuming it has no additives that are unsafe. Dogs can eat almond butter on occasion; however, avoid regularly feeding your dog a lot of almond butter as it’s difficult to digest and may cause intestinal distress.
Is almond butter better than peanut butter for dogs? Almond butter contains vitamin B3 to help keep your dog’s fur healthy, strong, and shiny and also supports the liver and the eyes. It also has high levels of Vitamin E, even higher than peanut butter, which helps remove harmful free radicals from your dog’s cells and increase the function of their immune system.
Are any nut butters bad for dogs? Pecans, macadamias and pistachios can all cause gastric upset and/or obstructions, and those highest in fat (especially macadamias and pistachios) can cause pancreatitis. Of course, any chocolate coated nut or chocolate/cocoa-containing nut butter should also be kept out of your dog’s reach.
