Although it is not recommended to feed dogs human foods on a regular basis, edamame is occasionally acceptable to give to canines. Vegetables that are high in fiber, such as edamame, are more likely to give a dog gas or other gastrointestinal issues.
Edamame is not toxic to dogs. Foods that are toxic to dogs include grapes, raisins, onions, garlic, macadamia nuts and chocolate. If a canine consumes one of the listed foods, a veterinarian should be consulted immediately.
Edamame consists of immature soybeans picked at peak ripeness. The beans of this plant are contained in tough, inedible pods that are discarded when eating.
