Don’t Let Your Dog Eat Chapati or Roti


Chapati and roti aren’t considered toxic to dogs but there really is no benefit to feeding them these flat breads, even if it’s as an occasional treat. Your dog will be better off being fed his regular dog meals and not any of these human meals.

For dogs, chapatis and rotis can contain a high amount of empty calories, meaning there is little-to-no nutrients a dog would gain from eating them. You also need to keep in mind that some dogs may have sensitivities to grain and wheat. Dogs that have such problems are likely to suffer from digestive problems (or even allergic reactions) if they are allowed to eat a decent chunk of chapatis or rotis.

The above only refers to plain rotis and chapatis. Flavored ones should be kept away from dogs at all times because they may contain ingredients that are harmful to pets, such as garlic and onion.
