Hi,

Not all nuts are alright for dogs to eat. Macadamias and Walnuts are toxic to dogs.

Most nuts are high in fat, and excess fat can contribute to pancreatitis in dogs, but if you limit the amount of ingestion of cashews, plus feed non-salted ones, they do contain some natural elements that are healthy. Cashews are rich in magnesium and monounsaturated fats which are both very healthy nutrients. You can read more about what NOT to feed your dog, here:
