Can Dogs Eat Multigrain Bread? When it is or isn’t an Emergency

Multigrain bread is considered safe unless the bread contains ingredients that are toxic to pets or if your dog has allergies against grain or wheat. We, however, wouldn’t let your dog eat multigrain bread for the following reasons.

First, bread in general tends to just be a calorie filler for dogs. The grains used to make the bread does contain a bit of nutritional value but not enough to support your dog’s health in any meaningful way. Because of the high-calorie content, you wouldn’t want a piece of multigrain bread to account for the majority of a dog’s daily calorie intake.

Second, some dogs may have sensitivities or allergies against grain. Dogs that have this problem can easily develop symptoms like itchy skin and excessive licking after they have taken a bite of the multigrain bread. This is the reason why it’s best to avoid feeding your dog any food that isn’t part of his regular diet.

Last but not least, some multigrain bread may contain ingredients that are harmful to dogs. This may include ingredients like raisins and chocolate. Sometimes, these toxic ingredients won’t always be visible so it’s very important to check the product labels.

Your dog is most likely going to be fine if he ate a small piece of plain, multigrain bread but try and avoid this from happening for the reasons above. Want to know what else dogs shouldn’t eat? View our food database to find out.
