Maybe not. If the Italian sausage is processed with seasonings such as onion powder or garlic powder, these are toxic to your dog. Consuming these seasonings puts your dog at risk for anemia. In addition, spicy seasonings like red pepper will upset your dog’s stomach.
Even if you find an Italian sausage without any of these seasonings, this meat is high in fat, and it’s not a recommended protein for your dog.
Symptoms to Watch For
Watch out for these symptoms of anemia if your dog has consumed onion or garlic powder:
- Loss of appetite
- Dark colored urine
- Lethargy or weakness
