Are water chestnuts bad for dogs?

When raw, Water Chestnuts are dangerous due to Fasciolopsiasis that can be found on the surface of the plant and therefore get into the product. When cooked, Water Chestnuts are fine. They act as ruffage and do not digest at all, therefore, chopped up or minced is better than sliced disks (as found in most cans). At the end of the day, I'd recommend to just stay away from them. If you want to give your dog ruffage, give them carrots. Our 2 Yorkies and 2 Maltese like carrots as treats.

Horse chestnuts are straight up poisonous. They cause a drastic reduction in red blood cells. I do not know whether roasting chestnuts are bad for dogs.
