Can Dogs Eat Rye Bread? When it is or isn’t an Emergency
Dogs are unlikely to fall sick from eating small pieces of rye bread but there isn’t really a good reason to let them get a taste either. Rye bread is not considered harmful to dogs as long as your pooch doesn’t have allergies against grain or wheat, and if the bread doesn’t contain any ingredients that are considered toxic to pets.
Rye bread could be considered healthier than plain, regular bread because of its fibre and micronutrient content. That said, the nutritional benefit is most likely not large enough to really benefit a dog. Your dog is better off eating his regular meals and getting the nutrients required from healthy dog food and treats.
If your dog accidentally eats a small piece of rye bread then there probably isn’t much to worry about as long as the bread doesn’t contain “toxic” ingredients like raisins. Just keep a close eye on your dog and make sure he isn’t suffering from anything concerning. For a bigger list of human foods that dogs should and shouldn’t eat, check out our food database!
