Can dogs eat pecans

Customer Question

Can dogs eat pecans ?

To my knowledge pecans are not toxic to dogs but I certainly would not be feeding him a whole bunch of them. I would be concerned that they would cause gastrointestinal problems like vomiting and diarrhea. Below is a website that lists most of the foods that are toxic to dogs. Macadamia nuts are definitely toxic so please make sure you don't feed any of them to him.
