No, dogs should not be fed spicy food under any circumstances. Spicy food may contain ingredients like onion and garlic that are toxic to dogs. Even if they don’t contain such ingredients, the chili and spice used to make the spicy food could make your dog sick.

Dogs don’t have the same capacity as we do to handle spicy food so it’s more than likely for them to start experiencing gastrointestinal problems like diarrhea if they are given spicy food. According to Wag!, dogs are likely to feel the heat much more intensely than we do. A pepper that is only slightly spicy to us could put a dog under a lot of stomach pain.
