Can Dogs Eat Dry Pasta? When it is or isn’t an Emergency
In most cases, it’s safe for dogs to be given a small amount of dry pasta. Some dogs, for example, love to play with raw, dry pasta because it’s a bit of challenge to eat. Dog owners just need to be mindful of the following things before they let their dog eat dry pasta.
First, make sure your dog isn’t allergic to any ingredients used to make the dry pasta. Some dogs, for example, are allergic to wheat or sensitive to grains. Eating dry pasta may potentially trigger a reaction so it’s important to find this out before you let your dog try any new human food.
Second, make sure the dry pasta is only given in small, infrequent amounts. Think of it as more a dog treat. Pasta can contain a decent amount of carbs and “empty” calories. You don’t want your dog to not eat his regular dog food because he is feeling full from eating the dry pasta.
Last but not least, cut the dry pasta into small pieces. You never know but long strains of dry pasta may pose a choking hazard, especially if your dog isn’t chewing it well enough.
