As with anything small amounts are best for treats. Do not let your dog swallow the tails or shells because those are too sharp and can cause intestinal upset or injury.
But shrimp are not toxic to dogs though if they have a lot of butter or other fat on them the fat could be an issue causing pancreatic inflammation.
Hope this helps you!
