- Not a substitute for professional veterinary help.
No. For several reasons, it’s not a great idea. Baked beans are high in fat and sugar, and therefore pose a greater risk to dogs with diabetes. Baked beans also contain (tomato-based) ketchup, and tomatoes are harmful to dogs. If your dog gets into a tin of baked beans accidentally, he may not exhibit any side-effects. But certainly avoid baked beans whenever possible. If eaten over time, dogs are likely to develop pancreatitis or suffer damage to their red blood cells. If your dog does have a reaction to baked beans, call your vet immediately.
Symptoms to Look For
- Upset stomach, vomiting, or diarrhoea
- Decreased appetite
