Dogs Shouldn’t Eat French Toast or Eggy Bread
French toast isn’t a healthy treat for dogs. A small amount of French toast or eggy bread isn’t harmful to dogs providing it doesn’t contain ingredients that are toxic to dogs but that shouldn’t mean you should allow a dog to eat it.
A basic French toast typically consists of ingredients like egg, bread, milk, and cinnamon. As you might guess, none of these ingredients are “toxic” to dogs but what they do contribute when combined is a high amount of calories and fat. 100 grams of French toast or eggy bread may contain around 11 grams of total fat. This is close to the daily recommended allowance for adult dogs weighing 33 pounds.
Eating French toast would mean the dog is less likely to eat its regular dog food and it may miss out on important nutrients as a result. Fatty human foods like French toast and eggy bread may also contribute to serious health conditions like pancreatitis over the long-term.
Dogs that accidentally eat French toast will most likely be fine or may suffer from temporary digestive problems like diarrhea. A trip to the vet isn’t always necessary unless the toast contains “toxic” ingredients or if the dog ate too many slices.
