Usually, dogs love being with their owners and will happily try out any foods their human owner is eating. Maybe some owners don’t even consider the consequences as they toss bits of whatever they are eating to their dogs. But have you ever wondered, if you are conscientious about what your dog eats, whether seafood is OK for your dog to eat – what about shrimp, for instance?
Most of us humans love and enjoy eating shrimp. It’s considered a highly delicious addition to a lot of other foods we eat, such as pasta. And often we love to pour cheesy-mushroom and garlic type sauces, or favorite flavorings like butter and garlic and other sauces over. We love it so much that we often move on to the larger versions of shrimps known as prawns. In the USA, shrimp is the most popular seafood eaten – one source says that the average person eats around four pounds of shrimp each year.
Shrimp consists of a small, soft, edible body – this is inside a flexible shell. The shrimp has a semi-rigid tail fin, small legs, and tentacles on its head. Whether it’s jumbo, cocktail, gulf, battered, buttered, boiled or broiled, you will find shrimp from fast food joints to dive bars to 5-star restaurants. Naturally, you will want to share this delicious delicacy with your canine companion.
