Dogs can eat mints but if you feed them too many they might get sick. if you are concerned about your dogs breath you should brush their teeth properly with an old tooth brush Sure dogs can eat mints, A lot of dogs wont even touch it though. I have an English Bulldog that will take the little ice breaker mints and then foam at the mouth, it's funny. It is not safe for a dog to eat mints. In fact many "sweets" contain Xylitol which is poisonous to dogs. Dogs that eat Xilitol can develop a sudden drop in blood sugar, which can cause weakness, lethargy, loss of coordination, collapse and seizures. Symptoms can begin in as little as 30 minutes and last hours. It is recommended that pets that experience symptoms be taken to a veterinarian or local emergency clinic for evaluation.

No, it isn't healthy for a dog to eat bread because bread get clogged in a dogs digestive system and makes it more difficult for the dog to defecate, and the dog may vomit.

If your dog doesn't eat, that is a symptom of sickness of some kind. Healthy dogs eat enthusiastically. The dog needs to be examined by a veterinarian.

Dogs can eat fruits, but it is not healthy. NEVER feed your dog grapes they are poisonous to dogs. Of course feeding your dog human food is obviously not healthy.

Well, it would matter on the type of dog, but is is not healthy for dogs to eat pie unless it was made for them.

Yes, in fact , the better dog foods contain rice. What is really bad for a dog is to eat rice, but no meat.

One of the reasons that a dog will eat grass is because it has an upset stomache but I thinks that it is normal thing for a dog to eat grass. I am not sure if it is healthy for a 6 pound dog but I am pretty sure it's fine. I would ask a veterinarian.

I have miniature donkey that I need to train and gain the trust of, and I've heard that they like mints. But I know that there's a whole lot of junk in them, and I want my donkey to be healthy. Is it okay to use mints as occasional treats? Also, can you recommend any other treats?

It depends on the size of the dog and how energetic it is. Working dogs will eat more but remain slim and healthy

A healthy dog food has meat listed first.Any dog food that has corn,soy wheat and meat by- products listed is not healthy and all those things are just fillers and the dog will want to eat more.

a dog can eat any type of bone but the question you should have asked is is it healthy for a dog to eat deer bones then in that case the answer would be no

No. Even though many people feed their horse peppermints they are not good for horses. They are pure sugar and are not healthy for horse. If you insist on feeding peppermints please feed in moderation.

Depending how a dog is raised, its size and personality, it is possible for a dog to eat a frog. This is not healthy as some frogs can be highly poisonous.

Do not give them chocolate. you can give them (if they will eat it) veggies fruit meat (raw or cooked) anything healthy

If they're really strong mints I guess it is normal. If I eat really strong flavored mints or something my eyes water which makes me sneeze sometimes ;)

User Avatar

yes dogs can eat fruit!!!! my dog loves fruit and he is still healthy.

User Avatar

Of course not because the dog could end up choking on what ever you are feeding him.

About 160, but eating a raw hot dog is not healthy. You should only eat a cooked hot dog.
