Can Dogs Eat Lemon Cake? When it is or isn’t an Emergency

Desserts like lemon cake should be kept out of your dog’s reach. They don’t benefit your dog’s health in any way and you will see why once you consider the ingredients that go into baking lemon cake. The most basic ingredients may include flour, butter, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and zest.

None of the above ingredients are considered toxic to dogs but will cause plenty of problems, especially with the digestive tract, if they are eaten in large amounts. A tiny piece of lemon cake is unlikely to make your dog sick but anything greater may require close surveillance and an eventual visit to the vet.

    Our golden retriever just ate a whole lemon cake off the stove. Should we be worried or will he just poop it out.
