Dogs and Cheese! (5 replies)
So i was searching around and stumbled upon an article about dogs and cheese. I became interested mainly due to me being a huge cheese lover and eating it most of the night with some nice wine on the side. I was wonder what your thoughts are on when it comes to feeding your dogs cheese or if any of you do and have. What kind of effects has it had on them, and how much have/do you give them?
Our dog loved cheeses, but just like Kristine, we didn't offer it regularly because the lactose in cheese can be difficult to digest especially in adult and older dogs. So, as with any treats, I recommend moderation. And, watch out for high fat content, too.
My dog liked cheese, but like the other posters I gave it sparingly. As a pet sitter, I never give people food to other peoples' pets because I'm not sure how it will affect them. Even without medical conditions, dogs can be so different in what they can tolerate.
My sister and I both had German shepherds at the same time. My shepherd could eat anything and be fine - she had an iron stomach. Hers on the other hand...not so much. One trash foraging, or instance of people food for her dog meant that the next 48 hours were going to be very interesting for my sister! (And smelly...)
Great answer, Skylar! Cheese can have a lot of fat in it...like everything else that tastes good, darn it! 😀
