Erdnüsse für Hunde: Lecker oder gefährlich?

Peanuts for dogs: tasty or dangerous?

3 minutes

The question of whether our four-legged friends can snack on peanuts can sometimes cause uncertainty. But don't worry, we have the answers for you.

Benefits of Peanuts

Peanuts are not poison for dogs. On the contrary, they are full of proteins, healthy fats and a variety of vitamins - all nutrients that your dog also needs.

The catch with seasoned and salted peanuts

Despite these benefits, seasoned or salted peanuts are not ideal for dogs. High amounts of salt can lead to thirst, water retention and, in extreme cases, even salt poisoning. Artificial additives and spices are also not beneficial for your pet.

The trap with fat content and aflatoxin risk

Even natural peanuts have their pitfalls. They are relatively high in fat and, when consumed in large quantities, can lead to digestive problems and obesity. Another risk is shriveled or incorrectly stored nuts, which can be contaminated with aflatoxin, a mold toxin.

Peanuts as a treat

A few peanuts every now and then as a special reward shouldn't hurt your dog. However, make sure that they are unseasoned and unsalted. Peeled, natural peanuts are best suited for this.

Conclusion

Overall, it can be said that dogs can eat peanuts from time to time. The most important points are summarized here:

  • Peanuts are not toxic to dogs and contain beneficial nutrients.
  • Avoid seasoned or salted peanuts as they can be harmful to your dog.
  • Peanuts are fatty, so they should only be consumed in moderation.
  • Peanuts that have not been stored properly can pose an aflatoxin risk.
  • As a treat, some unseasoned and unsalted peanuts are okay occasionally.
