Yes, there are many health benefits to giving a dog kelp. Such benefits include [1]:

 

-Improving digestive health

-Helping the heart to pump efficiently

On the other hand, it is important to give your dog the appropriate amount of kelp in order for it to work properly. You can ask your vet what amount is best for your dog.
