Don’t Let Your Dog Eat Club Crackers

Club crackers are just “empty” calorie fillers that will do much harm than good for your dogs. A small amount is unlikely to make your dog sick but anything more might cause stomach troubles.

One risk of club crackers is the sodium content. According to the product label, a single Kellogg’s Club Original Cracker should contain about 32 mg of sodium. The National Academy of Sciences suggests that a healthy adult dog weighing about 33 pounds should have a daily sodium allowance of about 200 mg. You can see that one cracker already accounts for 16% of a dog’s daily allowance.

There are plenty of treat alternatives you can offer to dogs that are much healthier and beneficial. If your dog accidentally eats a large amount of club crackers then do pay close attention to him and take him to the vet if he starts to exhibit any worrying health signs and symptoms. Aside from crackers, here is a list of human foods that dogs should also avoid.

Book an online vet appointment if your dog has an emergency but your local vet isn't available. Vetster is available 24/7 for video chat appointments.
