Can your Dog Eat Pastry
CAN DOGS EAT PASTRY?
Well, it's international Pie day, so the question is, can dogs eat pastry? The short answer is Yes, but before you let your pup eat it, there are some things you should know!
Pastry or pastries are a dough of flour, water, and shortening that may be salty or sweetened. The main ingredients are flour, water, shortening, sugar, milk, butter, baking powder, and eggs.
So can dogs eat pastry? Yes and no! Unless it does not contain any toxic ingredients such as avocados, chocolate, grapes, or cherries.., then it’s entirely safe for your dog. But this doesn’t mean you can always give it to your canine. Because pastries contain a high fat and sugar content, it can lead to weight gain and obesity over time. Obesity can lead to other serious health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
But if your dog ate pastry, maybe 1 or 2 pieces, she’s probably just fine, and there is no need to worry about her!
Also, sugar provides zero nutritional benefits and can impact your dog’s oral health (tooth decay).
