CAN DOGS EAT TOAST WITH JAM?
Dogs can eat the toast, but whether or not they can eat the jam really depends on the ingredients inside it. You’ll need to make sure there’s nothing toxic to dogs lurking in the jar, such as Xylitol which is a common sweetener but highly poisonous to dogs.
Jam is also very sugary, which isn’t good for your dog, but eating a little bit shouldn’t hurt them. Just remember to brush your dog’s teeth regularly to stop them from getting bad breath and cavities. If your dog has diabetes they shouldn’t eat jam because of the high amounts of sugar. But most dogs can enjoy a splodge of jam on their toast and be paw-fectly fine.
Marmite is safe for healthy dogs to eat but it is very salty. Too much salt is bad for dogs, and some pooches might have underlying health conditions which require a low-salt diet to manage. Many dogs can enjoy a little lick of Marmite paw-fectly safely, so your pooch can have a little bit on toast as a special treat. It’s best to be kept as a very occasional treat though, and must always be fed in moderation.
Dogs can eat plain white or brownbread, and it’s neither healthy nor harmful for your furry friend. As long as your dog doesn’t have any allergies, bread and toast are safe for your pooch to munch in moderation. Just don’t give them a whole slice because overfeeding them such a carby treat can lead to weight gain.
If you’ve got seeded or flavoured bread don’t feed it to your dog, just in case any of the ingredients are harmful. Don’t let your dog eat bread dough either because it can cause bloat and intoxication. These are classed as medical emergencies and very dangerous for dogs as they can endanger their lives.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen dogs eat sandwiches, slices, and even whole loaves of bread, and in one notable instance, an entire pack of English muffins. Bread makes up a large part of the American diet, and our dogs seem to get their fair share of it—but should they?
IS TOAST GOOD FOR DOGS WITH AN UPSET STOMACH?
Although we humans find toast bland and a great soother for an unsettled stomach, you shouldn’t offer your pooch a slice of toast if they have a pup-set stomach.
The best paws-ible food for a dog with an upset or sensitive stomach is plain, boiled white rice and some boiled chicken breast. These foods are very bland but su-paw easy for a dog to digest, so it helps to settle their stomach and give them all the energy and protein they need to feel better and get back onto their normal food.
