  • Ham is cured by brining or dry salting. It's high in fat and salt content, which is unhealthy for dogs. Excessive consumption can lead to obesity, renal problems, and pancreatitis.
  • Store-bought ham may contain nitrates that can be toxic to dogs in high doses.
  • Ham may contain garlic and onion, which can be toxic to dogs when consumed frequently in high amounts.
  • Hambones should not be given to dogs as they can splinter and damage their mouth and intestines, causing stomach obstruction.


  • A small amount of plain ham should not do any harm to a dog. However, avoid giving ham to your dog regularly and in excessive amounts.
