Can dogs eat sugar?
- Many dogs love sugar, but shouldn't have it. It's extremely bad for their teeth and you sure don't want a huge vet bill for dental work on your dog.
- Yes, many breeds of dogs actually have a sweet tooth just like humans and once you give them anything sweet some may sneak it or at least expect more. Of course chocolate is deadly for dogs. If your dog sneaks chocolate take them to the vets immediately and the vet will give a charcoal formula to absorb the chocolate; make them sick and also have bowel movements.

Though they are members of the Carnivore Order, dogs are not obligate carnivores like cats. They do eat meat, but they also eat vegetable and grain matter in small amounts. In… the wild, wolves hunt in packs to kill prey. The entire animal is eaten, including the contents of the digestive tract, which is their primary source for vegetable matter. Domesticated dogs, descended from wolves are no longer truly pack hunters. Feral dogs are more likely to be scavengers, occupying dumps and subsisting off the refuse of humans. Domesticated dogs still living in homes are generally fed a commercial dog food that contains meat, perhaps a little grain and vegetable sources. Most sources of nutrition come from meat and are balanced to meet all of the dog's dietary needs. Some are fed table scraps left from human meals. And some are fed home cooked meals designed especially for dogs or raw meals consisting primarily of meat. Other contributors have said: . Dogs eat many things. Some dogs eat grass to help their stomach feel better. Most dogs love meat, it's also healthy for them. Dogs usually eat any thing they can, even chocolate, so don't let them, or they will die. . Dogs eat rabbits, meat and much more. Dogs also eat dog food. . You should mostly feed your dog food that is designed for its species, unless your vet tells you differently (ie. special food for a health problem). Treats make them happy, but they shouldn't have too many. . Be prepared for your vet to tell you that your dog is allergic to meaty proteins. They can get a chemically modified dog food just right for them. However, it is more common for a dog to have allergies to corn and other cereals. A dog diet may include raw or cooked meat, organ meats, vegetables,grains and fruits. There are pros and cons to feeding raw, cooked,or processed food. It is best to research different types of foodand talk to a professional before deciding what diet is best foryour dog. Dogs should not consume: raw onions, garlic, grapes, raisins, orchocolate or anything containing caffeine, alcohol or rootvegetables. These can be toxic to their bodies. Some houseplantscan be poisonous if eaten by dogs, too. Dogs are descended from meat-eating wolves, therefore meat shouldbe included as a main ingredient in the most preferable diet fordogs. Dogs (wolves) are basically carnivorous in nature (at leastbiologically). Grains, fruit (e.g., blueberries and apples, but notcitrus) and cereals should also be included in their diet inmoderation. Vegetables are important for other nutrients and fiberand are included in most premium commercial dog foods, carrots arean excellent choice as a healthy treat, in bite sized pieces. Avoidsweets, salty items and overly fat foods. Too much fat in theirdiets can cause health problems and obesity just like in humans. Itcan also cause diarrhea if too much. A small amount of fat isneeded to keep their skin and coats healthy, however. Table scraps are usually too fat, too salty and not nutritiousenough and bad for their teeth. Brittle cooked bones, especiallysmall bones like from chicken, can splinter and be dangerous andeven puncture bowels, do not give those to your dog. Therefore,avoid these strict no-no's if you want your dog to be healthy. Giving your dog a quarter of a cup of canned pumpkin (like you usefor pies, although not the kind with sugar, etc. already init...just plain pumpkin) mixed in their food every day is very goodfor them nutritionally, helps their coats be healthy, and providesfiber that helps diarrhea or constipation. They love it, too. Dog food. You feed them normal dog food that you get at the shop or just biscets!!
They will vomit alot and feel horrible and get the shakes, but it is good if they do vomit
Sugar gliders should not eat foods with a high amount of sugar. Please don't add it to their food.

Many things eat dogs such as a bear mountain lion a wolf or any other big animal
Dogs are definitely capable of eating a sugar glider. Although there have been rare cases of the two getting along, and being friends. If your dog seems interested in your sug…ar glider at all, chances are he is thinking of the glider as prey. It's always best to keep your gliders safe from all predatory animals, even if it does include man's best friend, fido.
Not life threatening, however, my shelty ate 4 big sugar cookies out of a box that fell on the floor, and the next morning she is vomiting and refusing to eat.
because they might get hyper or they could get diabetes and that wouldn't be good for a dog!!
any amount never give a dog sugar
No but like humans it is not good for their teeth and to much of it is not good anyway.
It will make them over weight and it also can kill them
Run it around the block a few times to work off the extra weight. Sugar won't hurt it, although it shouldn't have it as a general thing.

Yes, it is bad because your pet may die if they eat to much.
Dogs should only eat dog food, because dogs are allergic to MANY things including chocolate, grapes, and more. Some dog foods are very bad for dogs. Make sure your dog food do…esn't have corn or by-products. A dog's diet depends on the particular dog in question. Wild dogs eat a variety of wild food ranging from meat to small vertebrae, insects and even fruits. Domesticated dogs also have a variety of food in it's diet depending on the breed or specie. A house pet dog can eat dog food of course. Dog food is found in many stores. Dogs can eat carrots, chicken, and a lot of things that people can eat. Dogs can not eat macadamia nuts. It paralyzes their legs for like a day. Dogs can not eat chocolate. I wouldn't feed your dog a grape. It can choke and die. My dog has accidentally had a grape once and it didn't kill her but be careful. Dogs can have pie. My dog has eaten all of these things that I have mentioned. She is still alive and well surprisingly.
It is fine for dogs to eat a little sugar once in awhile. In fact, dogs get energy from naturally occurring sugar from things like yogurt or fruit. So, an occasional sugar coo…kie is fine. The problems happen when the dog eats too many sugar cookies, or too much of any kind of sugary sweets. The dog may develop dental caries, hyperactivity followed by lethargy, obesity, and diabetes. Also, if a dog eats too many cookies at one time, it may cause them to vomit and have diarrhea.
