Well, no. Dogs shouldn’t eat hummus.

The main ingredient of hummus is chickpeas and dogs can eat chickpeas and even benefit from its nutritional value, but some other hummus ingredients like lemon juice and garlic make hummus a definite no food for dogs.

The garlic in hummus is the main reason why it wouldn’t be a good idea to give hummus to your dog.

According to the Pet Poison Helpline, garlic is mildly to moderately toxic to dogs.
