    My whole post was in the title. LOL!

    My dogs have been in this hotel all week with the exception of walks outdoors to potty and they have behaved exceptionally well. I just ordered a shrimp salad and BBQ wings for dinner and I'd like to give them a "treat" of having a small bite of something special- and I know better than try to give them hot wings. (I'm talking about a small bite- not all of the shrimp.) But I sure don't want to poison them.

    I've heard it was bad for them. However, mine have managed to eat it without issue. Not that I gave it to them, sister in law did before I had a chance to tell him. Since they've had it a few more times.....dug it out of the trash or snitched it off the table. Didn't so much as make them sick.

    So I dunno.

    Maybe it's another thing they makes them like humans- maybe some are allergic and some are not. I think mine have had small bites of it before but I can't remember for sure. I just know that they have behaved 10 times better than normal (no barking, being social and mannerly when I stopped to chat with the desk clerk after walking them, etc) and they deserve something special!! If difficult child made this big of a turnaround I'd bring him straight home. LOL!

    In small amounts, shrimp should be just fine to give your dogs as a treat. I am glad they enjoyed it !

    I suppose some could have allergies to seafood the same as people do. Shellfish may be different from other kinds of fish but I know that many of the manufacturers of the premium dog foods have fish formulas and they're generally used for dogs with allergies.

    Good point- mine eat dog food that says it has salmon in it- they love it, too! And I know I've cooked salmon on the grill before then given them a little bite of it.
