Can My Dog Eat Pistachios?

  • Not a substitute for professional veterinary help.

Imagine: you’re sitting on your porch, enjoying a bowl of pistachios. You accidentally knock the whole thing onto the ground, and your dog hoovers up some nuts before you can stop them. Pistachios are a healthy and tasty treat for humans, but can dogs eat pistachios?

Can Dogs Eat Pistachios?

Maybe not. Pistachios aren’t inherently toxic to dogs, but nuts aren’t a recommended treat for our furry friends. They’re high in fat and can contain a mold that puts your dog at risk for liver damage. Nuts can also give your dog an upset stomach or cause an intestinal obstruction leading to more serious digestive issues. In addition, pistachio shells are a choking hazard.
