Avoid Letting Your Dog Eat Digestive Biscuits

A small amount of digestive biscuits is unlikely to cause any harm to dogs but it’s also unlikely to offer any benefits. Let’s first take a look at the ingredients used to make plain digestive biscuits. The core ingredients include: flour, sugar, raising agents, and salt.

Digestive biscuits could be considered “empty” calories for dogs given the lack of nutrients it contains. One biscuit could contain about 70 calories so by letting your dog digestive biscuits, you could be filling up a large portion of their daily calorie intake without them getting the important nutrients they require.

The above is only referring to plain digestive biscuits. These days, digestive biscuits come in many flavors. Some of these flavors may contain additional ingredients that are toxic or unhealthy for pets. Generally speaking, your dog will be better off being given his regular dog treats as opposed to biscuits like digestives.
