Don’t Let Your Dog Feast on Gingerbread Cookies
Dogs should not be allowed to eat gingerbread cookies as they may contain ingredients that are either toxic to pooches or ingredients that may cause a lot of disruption to the dog’s stomach. For example, a lot of gingerbread cookies may use ingredients like nutmeg, which are toxic to dogs. The actual amount used in the gingerbread cookies is probably not enough to cause serious harm but it’s something you should still be careful about.
The other big reason for not letting your dog eat gingerbread is the high fat and sugar content. Dogs don’t have a digestive system that can process a lot of fat and sugar so dogs that have a bit too many gingerbread cookies may suffer from symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting. In the worst case scenario, some dogs may even suffer from serious conditions like pancreatitis.
We would advise not taking these risks and let your dog feast on something healthier and more safe than gingerbread cookies.
