    Peanuts are not a true nut but a legume..not the same as tree nuts at all…same goes for cashews.

    the only way to keep your dog healthy is to make your own, what I eat they eat, will not feed them canned food, I then know what they are eating

  • Cyndi

    I wouldn’t be too worried. Just keep an eye on him. He’ll probably get a bit of runny poop, but I doubt there were enough onions on the sandwich to cause any harm. Maybe the hot sauce will deter him from doing it again, lol!

    You would be surprised at how many foods are not so great for dogs. A good website for checking certain people foods for your dog is:

    They also cover lots of human medicines that people commonly give to their K9s which can be very dangerous, even fatal.

    Unless he has pancreas issues he should be alright. I bought clarified butter for myself but couldn’t tolerate the taste of it so fed it to my toy breed dogs (in small amounts of course) and they LOVED it.
