When you type in nuts and dogs the first site that pulls up is one that says that nuts are bad because of salt content. It is off of another forum. I think that is one of the problems with google. This one is minor, but Sienna...... I think that you need to be careful about googling to find the answers because you can pull up unsound advise. It is okay not to know the answer. Let those that do reply to the poster.
I didn't google it. It's just something I know, and some dogs also have allergies to nuts. If people want to disagree that's fine, but you can't say the nuts are healthy for dogs and untouched by the manufacturers.
Nuts are not a normal part of a dogs diet, period. That dosent make them bad. Nuts are a wonderful food if not salted. People like to salt them.
Dogs can also be alergic to beef, chicken, lamb, white rice, whole grain rice, cats, peas, carrots, potatos, humans, fleas, ticks, various vaccinations, other breeds of dogs, grass, trees, flowers, floor cleaners, pollen, arasol sprays, fruits, bedding, concrete, metals and the list goes on.
So saying that some dogs are alergic to nuts carries the same weight as saying some dogs are long haired.
You don't pretty much copy and paste and parrot what you'd read. You seem to have a fairly well rounded opinion, usually meaning you didn't read one source and decide you knew it all. And then get attitude when people point out the advice is wrong or dangerous. Tylenol anyone?
To have nuts cause bladder stones you'd have to be feeding copious amounts and often. Being not the easiest thing to digest, don't see why anyone would do that. Few nuts now and then as long as they aren't macadamia nuts isn't going to do anything.
Mafia is correct IMO...they are fine if you are simply giving them a few as a treat on occasion, now filling their food bowl with them would be what causes issues. Mainly it has to do with them being difficult to digest, just as in humans...not salt content.
