How often can my dog have a Puppuccino? Here’s What to Expect

What is a Puppuccino?

A Puppuccino is just a small amount of whipped cream served in an espresso cup that you can get at Starbucks — and dog parents everywhere love grabbing them to give their dogs a little treat when they get their own favorite Starbucks drinks.

Are Puppuccinos safe for dogs to eat?

Luckily, dogs everywhere can rejoice, because according to Dr. Lindsey Bullen, a board certified veterinary nutritionist at BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital in Cary, North Carolina, yes your dog can be just as extra as you at Starbucks. “However, it is important to keep in mind that every pet is a unique individual!” Dr. Bullen told The Dodo.

This means that as long as your dog has no medical problems (including no sensitive stomach), they​ can happily enjoy a Puppuccino — occasionally.

“Some pets are more sensitive to lactose, so it is always recommended (no matter what the treat) to start small,” Dr. Bullen said. In other words, don’t just give a huge cup of whipped cream to your dog if she’s never had it before.

And definitely don’t give it to her every day. Puppuccinos should be considered an occasional treat — like a reward for being such a good girl at the groomer that month.

The Puppuccino at Starbucks is a simple, Secret Menu item

The reason why it is important to know what the Puppuccino really is, is because whipped cream has sugar in it. And while this certainly something our pups can enjoy once in a while, we definitely should not be giving this treat to them on a regular basis.
