Can Dogs Eat Rice Krispies? When it is or isn’t an Emergency
No, you should avoid feeding your dog Rice Krispies Treats. This rice-based cereal is packed with sugar and this can be quite problematic for a dog’s stomach if they eat a large amount of Rice Krispies in one sitting. Giving your dog a bit of Rice Krispies Treats is unlikely to cause much harm but there isn’t much benefit either from a dietary perspective.
Most dogs require a high-protein diet and rice-based products like Rice Krispies Treats aren’t an adequate meal replacement. These days, Rice Krispies are offered in a variety of flavors. Some flavors, such as the Cocoa Krispies cereal, should definitely be kept away from your dog’s mouth. As some of you may already know, these cereals may include ingredients like chocolate which are toxic for pets.
Other than rice krispies, there are many other human foods dogs should generally avoid. Check out our human food for dogs database to find out what they are.
