No, dogs should not be fed any food that contains garlic salt. The powder in garlic salt is partially made from dehydrated garlic, which contains a compound that’s harmful for dogs. This includes disulfides and thiosulphates. Dogs that accidentally ingest garlic salt or any other garlic-based products open themselves up to serious conditions like Heinz-body hemolytic anemia.

Whenever you cook or bring meals that contain garlic salt, it’s very important that they are well out of the dog’s reach. The dog might get away with it if he only ingests a small amount of garlic salt but anything larger may potentially need a trip to the vet. Keep in mind that eating a lot of salt is also bad for dog as it will make him very thirsty. Excessive salt intake may also lead to sodium poisoning so nothing good comes out from a dog eating garlic salt.
