Can Dogs Eat Edamame?

Just like humans, dogs need a well-balanced diet, which means feeding them kibble in most cases. But a little bit of human food every once in a while can boost your dog’s health, provided you feed them the right things. Many kinds of beans make excellent treats for your pup. But is edamame one of them?

Is edamame safe for dogs to eat?

Absolutely! Edamame is totally safe for dogs to eat, given that you feed it in moderation and only serve them plain edamame. Edamame is a kind of soybean, which are also fine for dogs. Just avoid edamame with soy sauce or sea salt.

How should edamame be prepared for dogs?

You’ll want to give your dog plain edamame. Edamame with sea salt or soy sauce is too much sodium for your pup and could potentially harm their health.

How much you’ll want to feed your pup depends on its size and age. Like with any treat, you’ll want to abide by the 90/10 rule: 90 percent of your dog’s calories should come from regular dog food and the other 10 percent from treats.
