Hello, and thanks for writing in.


Dogs can eat a small amount of shrimp without any problems. The only concerns would be if the shrimp are raw (possibility of food poisoning), if the shells are eaten (can cause irritation or blockage if enough are eaten), or allergies (if he is allergic to shellfish).


I hope this helps.
