Can Dogs Eat English Muffins? When it is or isn’t an Emergency
Generally speaking, we would avoid feeding your dog most types of bread including English muffins. Plain English muffins aren’t toxic to dogs but that doesn’t mean their body can tolerate it well.
A dog that eats a tiny amount of English muffin is unlikely to get sick but eating several muffins may trigger a reaction. Some of the ingredients that go into the making of an English muffin may not be healthy for dogs when consumed in large amounts. This could include ingredients like butter and sugar.
Eating such ingredients may result in the dog suffering from acute symptoms like stomach upsets and diarrhea. The severity of symptoms will depend on a number of factors such as the amount of muffin consumed, the ingredients used in the muffin, and the size of the dog. While the likelihood is small, there could be greater danger for dogs that are allergic to the ingredients used in English muffins, such as wheat.
Don’t forget the muffin wrapper as well. The English muffin wrappers could pose a choking risk, especially if the dog was to eat the wrapper whole without chewing.
Aside from English muffins, there are many other human foods that can pose a threat to pets. You can learn more about them by visting our human foods for dogs list where we cover over 100 human foods that should or shouldn’t be consumed by dogs.
