Can dogs eat unsalted, shell-less sunflower seeds?
I know that dogs can't eat macadamia nuts and walnuts. What about unsalted, shell less sunflower seeds? Just curious!

I actually did some reading on this. My youngest dog Gidget likes to steal the ones I drop while eating them myself.
Apparently they can be given to dogs in moderation, but the sunflower oil can cause digestive upset if too much is consumed.
So I don't freely give her the seeds, but if she picks up a few that I have spilled, I don't make a fuss. She has never gotten sick from them, and my other dogs don't like them.
Hope this helps.

I would say keep these to a minium. I don't think it would be good to feed them many.
And some dogs could get some really bad irritation from the shell
I would be super careful with feeding a dog inappropriate things. Be safe :)

My dog loves seeds...he has never seemed to have any issue with them and I always crack him a few when I partake in seeds....
