Avoid feeding your dog anything sweet like caramel. It’s unlikely to be fatal (unless you let your dog eat a ridiculously large amount) but it may introduce other health problems.

First, let’s think about what caramel is. It’s basically melted sugar. Dogs that eat a decent chunk of caramel could end up with temporary digestive problems like stomach upsets and constipation.

The sugar content of the caramel may also introduce dental problems down the road, especially if you aren’t cleaning the dog’s teeth on a regular basis. There’s absolutely no nutritional benefit that comes out from eating caramel so please make sure to keep these sweets away from your pet.
