Can dogs eat salt and pepper?

This is a great question and one that I’ve wondered too. I’ve seen articles online that say no, but it’s not the truth. My theory is that when dog food is made, it is mixed with water to help prevent the food from drying out. Then salt is added to the dry food. After that, the dry food is then mixed with the dogs water. This means that a dog eating too much dry food that has too much salt is actually eating both the salt and the water in the food.

As you can imagine, water and salt don’t exactly mix. This means that the dog could end up eating both salt and the water and it could really screw up their tummies! To be sure, if your dog is eating excessive amounts of dry food, I would encourage you to find a good commercial dog food to feed them instead of homemade food. In fact, do a web search for “high quality dog food” and it should pop up as a resource. Just keep in mind that they are NOT created equal. Some are just as good as the kibble in my grocery, but some are actually better. Ask your vet which he/she recommends.

I would also recommend to put a salt tab on the bowls. This would prevent your dog from having to get salt from the table as much and then having to spit it out. (A small pinch of the salt tab in the dogs mouth and then spit out would help prevent it.)

I hope this answer helps!
