Don’t Let Your Dog Eat Tuna with Mayo

Tuna Salad

Tuna and mayo are a popular combination used in many meals like sandwiches and salads. It’s not something you would want your dog to eat though. First, you need to consider that mayonnaise has a high fat content. Dogs that are allowed to eat fatty foods on a regular basis are more likely to suffer from serious health conditions like pancreatitis. In the short-term, some dogs may also suffer from mild stomach problems if they are allowed to eat too much tuna with mayo.

The other problem is the tuna, which is known for containing a relatively high amount of mercury. From our perspective, it’s always better to be safe than sorry by only letting your dog eat fish that pose less mercury risk like tilapia.

You need to also keep in mind that some tuna with mayo recipes may contain ingredients that are actually harmful to dogs. This may include ingredients like onion.
