Caviar is a food delicacy that isn’t considered toxic to dogs so it’s unlikely to harm your pooch if he accidentally eats a small amount. Caviar, however, does contain a lot of salt so it can pose a risk to the dog’s digestive health if they eat too much caviar.

One tablespoon of caviar could contain around 240 mg of sodium. Healthy dogs that weigh about 33 pounds shouldn’t consume more than 100 mg of sodium per day. You can already see how much of a health risk a single tablespoon of caviar could pose to small to medium-sized dog breeds.

Dogs that suffer from salt poisoning could show symptoms that range from mild to severe. If your dog isn’t acting normal after eating some caviar then a trip to the vet is necessary.
