Dogs Must Not be Allowed to Eat Caramel Popcorn
The high sugar and sodium content of caramel popcorn will increase the risks of your dog getting sick. 100 grams of caramel popcorn may contain around 65 grams of sugar (equates to 12 or 13 teaspoons). It shouldn’t come as a surprise if your dog starts to show symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting if they are allowed to go through a whole bag of caramel popcorn.
Some caramel popcorns may also utilize sugar-free caramel, which is an absolute no-go for dogs. Many of these sugar-free products contain xylitol, which is considered toxic to dogs.
One last concern is the calories. Dogs that are allowed to eat calorie-heavy products like caramel popcorn, even as an occasional treat, may eventually suffer from weight gains so it’s important to moderate the amount of treats your dog is allowed to eat.
