Even I have come across this bitter experience with my Sasha. She ate roasted almonds which I have prepared for a dessert. Dogs poisoning symptoms are common, and there is no exception for almonds too. Your dog may exhibit severe stomach upsets, digestive issues, coma, and much more.
Now, let’s see in what quantity can dogs eat almonds and how to prepare them for our beloved pup.

While both peanut butter and almond butter have the same kind and amount of fiber, the differences really show in the vitamins! Almond butter has a substantial advantage over peanut butter when it comes to vitamin E. Your dog’s body needs vitamin E for a healthy skin and coat, and it can even help him recover from some health conditions! Almond butter is also higher in magnesium which nourishes the nervous system. It also contains 100% more iron, keeping blood oxygenated.

Our Bouvier des Flandres just loves Almonds and the almonds never seem to bother her…We only give her the Fresh Non salted kind… as soon as you get a handful, she’s right there looking for one… and more! She hates potato chips, or popcorn… a fussy eater… but she will always track ya down if she smells you have an almond!
I am glad to see other dogs like them too… thought she was just weird.Dogs eating almonds opens up the door for them to a rich source of Vitamin E, magnesium, copper, high-quality protein, unsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants and more.– Pancreatitis: Since almonds are rich in fat, they can cause pancreatitis in dogs. You can tell if your dog has pancreatitis if they start to vomiting, have diarrhea, show a decreased appetite level and show weakness and lethargy.– Water Retention: Especially true if your dog eats salted almonds. Water retention becomes a terrible problem for dogs which have heart disease, because the combination of these two can be fatal and lead to the death of your dog.An almond or 2 every now and then most likely will not be harmful to a dog. But the probem is the fat content. Too much of certain types of fat are difficult for a dog’s pancreas to handle. Most nuts are not really good for dogs for this reason. The more nuts, the harder it is on the pancreas. Effects may not be immediate, but it is like our pancreas, cumulative abuse takes its toll. Also Macadamia nuts will straight out hurt your dog, so never give those or anything that has been in contact with those.I have two Bernese Mountain Dogs and occasionally give them almonds, raw unsealed Costco bran. My male has a sensitive stomach but never seems bothered by the almonds. both dogs really love them, but being Berners, they pretty much like anything.Dogs love the smell and taste of salted almonds, and will eat them at the slightest chance they get, so it’s your duty to make sure any kind of almond is kept as far away from your dog as possible.Nuts seem an unlikely source of delight for a dog, but there are some dogs who develop a taste for nuts because they’re salty and high in fat. Before you let your dog munch on your favorite brand of almonds, there are a few things you should be aware of.
