Can Dogs Eat Macaroni and Cheese? When it is or isn’t an Emergency

Letting your dog eat macaroni and cheese is asking for trouble. It’s unlikely to be fatal but mac and cheese could make your dog sick. How sick your dog becomes will depend on the amount of mac and cheese he eats.

There are a couple of reasons why mac and cheese are unhealthy for dogs. First, consider the amount fat and calories this dish contains. Cheddar, for example, is a popular type of cheese used in mac and cheese dishes and 100 grams of it could contain up to 33 grams of fat! Dogs that are fed fat-heavy dishes on a regular basis are prone to developing serious health problems later in their life.

Let’s not forget about the calories either. One serving could contain anywhere between 300 to 500 hundred calories. Dogs are going to suffer from weight problems if they are allowed to eat dishes like mac and cheese.

Last but not least, you also need to consider the risk from the ingredients used in mac and cheese dishes. Some recipes may use ingredients like garlic powder, which is toxic to dogs.
