Maybe not. While summer sausage is not toxic, it’s not a recommended source of protein for your dog as it contains unhealthy levels of salt and fat. Summer sausage may also contain seasonings that are toxic to dogs including onion or garlic powder. If your dog regularly consumes a large amount of summer sausage, he may experience mild to severe digestive issues, pancreatitis, kidney damage, or salt poisoning.
If you’re concerned that your dog has eaten too much summer sausage, watch for these symptoms:
- Abdominal pain
- Increased thirst
- Increased urination
