Yes. Chickpeas are rich with fiber, which helps dogs feel fuller faster and longer. They’re also a great source of protein, though they shouldn’t be used as a replacement for animal protein. Avoid chickpeas in hummus form, as well as canned chickpeas. The latter contain preservatives that are harmful to your dog’s digestive system.
Your dog will enjoy chickpeas in small amounts after they’ve been cooked without seasonings. Dogs can eat chickpeas:
- Blended or whole, mixed with an animal protein and vegetable
- Blended or whole and served as a snack
- Replacing regular flour with chickpea flour in recipes
