Your dog would probably love to chow down on a hotdog. But is that a good idea? Hotdogs could be considered a kind of mystery meat, full of ingredients that you might be surprised by, or might not recognize. Many of these ingredients can be toxic to dogs. Many hotdogs contain ingredients that are not good for dogs, such as sodium nitrate, which has been linked to cancer; monosodium glutamate MSG ; and sugars or artificial sweeteners.
Hotdogs also contain seasonings, such as garlic and onion powder, and garlic and onions can be toxic to dogs. The biggest problem with hotdogs, though, is salt.Spiral-Sliced Hot Dogs - TVWGG - streetwearjobs.com
According to the National Academy of Sciencesa dog weighing 33 pounds only needs milligrams mg of sodium per day. The average hotdog contains more than mg of sodium, so feeding your dog only one-half of a hotdog would probably put him way over his daily sodium limit. Feeding a dog too much sodium can lead to dehydration.
And excess sodium over time can lead to high blood pressure, just like it can in humans. Another issue with hotdogs is that they are a choking hazard, especially for big dogs that might try to swallow them without chewing them.
Just one will probably not cause harm. He might get a bellyache or have some other digestive problems, like diarrheabut this should pass within one day. You only need to call the vet if the diarrhea persists, or if he is vomiting with diarrhea, as this could lead to extreme dehydration. Make sure that your dog has plenty of water available, since all that salt in the hotdog will probably make him thirsty.
Because they contain so many added ingredients that are not healthy for dogs, hotdogs are not a good choice for your pooch. Just make sure to cut the meat up into bite-sized pieces. This way, you know exactly what you are feeding your dog and the choking hazard is minimized.
