Can Dogs Eat Caviar?

Posted on

You're enjoying your Imperia Caviar. It melts like butter, and your mouth is exploding with rich sea flavors. As you savor your treat, your dog gives you an endearing look, eager for a taste.

Is caviar OK for dogs? In moderation, yes — but before you serve your dog a few of these glistening jewels, there are a few things to keep in mind.  

Caviar's Nutritional Facts

Before offering your furry friend a rare treat, consider the nutrition caviar provides so you can make an informed decision. Caviar contains:

  • Proteins: A tablespoon of caviar contains about 3.9 grams of protein, and this nutrient is an essential nutrient for dogs. Working dogs and puppies especially benefit from extra protein. 
  • Salt: Caviar has a high sodium content, which is an essential component of its unforgettable flavor. That said, an overly salty diet can leave your dog thirsty and dehydrated, and feeding your dog more than two grams of salt per pound can be lethal. Moderation is key.
  • Fats: Fish eggs contain fats with positive health benefits. Monounsaturated fat can boost your pet's high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) help fortify the cardiovascular system. 
  • Carbohydrates: Caviar's carbohydrate count is low — perfect for maintaining your dog's weight. 

The Benefits of Caviar

You can safely share a few pearls of caviar with your canine companion. In fact, fish eggs boast bountiful health benefits.

Like all fish products, caviar contains lots of omega-3 fatty acids. Dog food and supplements commonly contain this nutrient, as it benefits your dog's skin and joints and promotes a shiny coat. Omega-3 fatty acids can enhance cognitive functioning and memory as well. Caviar is also heart-healthy, as omega-3 fatty acids can help control blood cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure. 

The vitamins C, E, and A in caviar can boost your canine companion's immune system. Caviar also contains ample amounts of vitamin B12 and iron. These nutrients are essential for red blood cell and nerve cell production, and they help break down carbohydrates and fat. 

How Many Fish Eggs Can I Feed My Dog? 

Because of Caviar's high sodium count, dog owners must be cautious of how much caviar they offer their four-legged family members. Feeding your dog fish eggs is safe, but you need to do so in moderation to avoid health complications. Consider fish eggs a quality dog treat that's only enjoyed once or twice a week.
