Can Dogs Eat Anchovies?

Yes, you can safely give anchovies to your dog in moderation. The good thing about anchovies is that they are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids as most fish are and they have many beneficial health properties.

They have anti-inflammatory properties and provide help to a dogs fur, cardiovascular system, joints, brain and fur.

Serving Amount

One thing to remember is that anchovies have a lot of salt in and on them and therefore too many for your dog can be bad for their health and dangerous.

So like most things you feed to your dog moderation is key and giving a small dog 2 – 3 anchovies a day is more than enough. Possibly even a few less and balance it out with other foods that are good for dogs.

As for larger dogs they can have up to 5 a day.

Make sure that the anchovies are just a snack and can be added to other foods a dog is having such as their dog food.
