Frequent Can we give bread to puppy? Essential Tips

Clubs Offering:

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 It Safe for Dogs to Eat Bread?

The short answer to the question “can dogs eat bread?” is yes. Dogs can safely eat bread in much the same way as humans—in moderation. Plain white and wheat bread are generally safe for dogs to eat, provided they don’t have any allergies, and it usually does not cause any stomach upset.

Feeding your dog bread as a treat now and then won’t hurt them, as long as they are also fed a complete and balanced diet and get plenty of exercise. It also won’t help your canine. Bread is essentially a filler food and does not contain any nutrients not already supplied by your dog’s food. As anyone who has ever considered going on a diet knows, bread is full of carbs, which can put your dog on the path to obesity if you are not careful.

Dogs can’t have uncooked bread dough

According to The American Kennel Club, uncooked bread dough can be hazardous for dogs. Interestingly, their stomachs offer the ideal conditions for dough to rise and when they eat it, it expands and distends their stomach, as well as releases toxic levels of ethanol into their bloodstream – which can lead to alcohol toxicosis.

Do not feed your dog uncooked bread dough, and if your dog has ingested any and you notice any of the following symptoms after your dog has eaten bread dough, contact your vet immediately:

  • Elevated heart rate.
  • Weakness.
  • Unsteady gait – may appear almost ‘drunken’.
  • Distended abdomen.
  • Depression.
  • Seizures.
  • Respiratory failure.
  • Low blood pressure.
  • Retching or vomiting.
  • In severe cases, your dog may fall into a coma.
