Is it harmful for dogs to drink beer?
It won't really harm the pet to give him/her a small amount, but just like anyone, a dog can also get alcohol poisoning from over consumption. The other problem, and this is really serious, is that dogs can turn into alcoholics faster than humans. Then too, his weight is a major factor in how much alcohol he can consume, and just like humans, alcohol can cause dehydration and it can do it a lot faster to an animal with it's faster metabolism.

Beer was, in fac…t, the beverage of choice on long ocean sailing expeditions back before food storage science improved (per-refrigeration and sterile storage). Beer goes stale (flavor), and can go flat, but does not really spoil. There are a number of bacterias that can infect beer, but these affect more the flavor; there's not much that is more unpalatable than sour beer. (MORE)
