Edamame are all the rage these days. What are they? They’re soybeans that are still in the pod. These young beans are soft and edible. Edamame can be eaten raw, cooked in dishes or even steamed and boiled on its own. Some people add salt and seasonings—it just depends on your preferences. This versatile veggie is packed with nutrition: protein, Vitamins A & C, iron, and calcium.

Can my dog eat edamame? Yes, but only in moderation and only occasionally. You can serve these to your pup raw, out of the shell (your fur baby can’t digest the shells). They make a healthy snack or can be added to his regular dog food. Can my puppy eat edamame? What would happen if my puppy ate edamame? Puppies can also eat edamame. However, if your puppy eats too many beans, he could develop excess gas and/or diarrhea.  The same is true for adult dogs. One note: soy products are a known allergen to both humans and dogs. Some dogs are allergic to any type of soy, so be sure to watch for signs and symptoms of allergies when your pup eats edamame.
