No, you should avoid feeding your dog sweet potato chips. Cooked sweet potato is safe for dogs to eat in moderation but sweet potato chips are a whole different matter. They may contain a high fat and oil content if the chips were fried. Some dogs may not respond well to the high fat content and start to develop symptoms like diarrhea and upset stomachs. Store-bought sweet potato chips may also contain artificial additives which your dog may not respond well to.

The only way to feed your dog sweet potato chips is by making it yourself. One suggestion is to peel off the sweet potato skins, cut the sweet potato flesh into small slices, then bake the sweet potato chips until they start to shrink and become crispy. This way, you avoid the oil and artificial additives that make store-bought sweet potato chips unhealthy for dogs.
