Can Dogs Eat Brown Beans? (Benefits/Risks)

Yes, dogs can eat brown beans.

Beans are an excellent health choice for dogs. Beans contain lots of protein and dietary fiber, both of which help to keep your dog full between meals.

They also provide B vitamins, vitamin A, potassium, copper, phosphorus, and manganese.

Dogs can eat raw beans, boiled beans (they should be mushy), and even canned beans.

Be sure to remove the pit before feeding your dog any type of bean, as this presents a choking hazard that could damage your dog’s throat.

Additionally, do not feed adult dogs raw or green soybeans; these beans contain a toxin called phytohemagglutinin that can cause vomiting and diarrhea.

Brown beans are considered to be healthy for dogs.

However, you should only feed your dog cooked brown beans, because raw or green soybeans may cause stomach upset or intestinal issues in adult dogs.

Also, give your dog plenty of water after you have fed it brown beans, in order to help its stomach break down the fiber.

If your dog ever appears sick after eating beans, immediately seek medical attention.
