A Tiny Amount of Clam Could Be Okay for Dogs
It’s safe for dogs to eat a tiny amount of clam as long as they are fully cooked. We would suggest not feeding your dog more than one or two clams. The shellfish should not be considered a replacement for regular dog meals. It should be viewed as more of an occasional treat.
When you serve clams to dogs, make sure to take the meat out of the shell. They should also be served plain. Do not adding any seasoning or ingredients that are considered harmful to dogs. We would also avoid feeding your dog fried clams given the amount of oil that accompanies the clam meat. Instead, it would be better to boil or bake them until the clams are fully cooked.
