Can dogs eat honey roasted peanuts?
Dogs can safely consume moderate amounts of honey-roasted peanuts. The keyword there is “moderate” and by that, I mean that when consumed in the smallest quantities occasionally, there isn’t any risk of health issues for your dog. Since honey roasted peanuts have high-fat content, regular consumption can lead to stomach upsets or pancreatitis.

I’d also want to point out that the way your pet reacts to consuming different amounts of honey roasted peanuts is heavily dependent on his size and health history.
