peanuts/ any danger?
« on: October 10, 2006, 01:37:07 pm »
It's the time of year we keep out salted-in-shell peanuts for all to eat in our office. I know excess salt is not good for a dog. Other than that allergies shouldn't be an issue. Is there any reason or danger to a dog getting a beggars share of peanuts, and peanut shells, every day for a few weeks?

Peanut itself is not really bad for dogs - they eat peanut butter all the time. But I would be careful of whole nuts, especially with the shells, because I would be concerned that peices of nut or shell might become lodged in their digestive tract
