Don’t Let Your Dog Eat a Piece of Strawberry Cake
Strawberries aren’t considered toxic to dogs but there are many other ingredients used in strawberry cake that can prove problematic (or even fatal) to dogs.
Dogs, in general, shouldn’t be allowed to eat desserts like strawberry cake. The core cake ingredients, such as butter, sugar, and milk, can cause havoc in a dog’s digestive system especially if they are eaten in large amounts. Some dogs may eventually suffer from stomach upset symptoms like vomiting and diarrhea if their stomach is sensitive to the strawberry cake ingredients.
Some strawberry cakes may also contain ingredients that are toxic to dogs. This could be artificial sweeteners like xylitol. This is why you need to be extra careful with store-bought cakes as it isn’t immediately care whether the strawberry cake ingredients are safe for dogs to consume.
There really is no benefit to letting your dog eat strawberry cake. Your dog would be better off eating fresh strawberries in moderation.
