Can Dogs Eat Croissants? When it is or isn’t an Emergency
Plain croissants don’t contain ingredients that are considered toxic to dogs but these ingredients may still be quite unhealthy for the dog’s health. In general, the main ingredients of croissants consist of butter, flour, water, sugar, and yeast.
The butter, in particular, isn’t good for dogs because of the high fat content. 100 grams of croissant could contain up to 12 grams of saturated fat. This is almost 60% of a human’s daily recommended intake. Imagine how high it must be for dogs!
A dog that accidentally has one or two bites of the croissant is unlikely to get sick. However, any larger intake might potentially cause health issues like stomach upsets and diarrhea. Please bear in mind that this only applies to plain croissants. If your dog ate a flavored version like chocolate croissants then a trip to the emergency vet could be required.
