Frequently Asked Questions

IS YOGURT SAFE FOR DOGS TO CONSUME?

Yogurt is high in calcium and protein and acts as a probiotic, making it good for your dog’s digestive system. However, too much yogurt may cause your dog to become sick because dogs aren’t used to large amounts of lactose. Plain Greek yogurt is the healthiest option for your furry friend. 

IS honey SAFE FOR DOGS TO CONSUME?

Dogs can handle honey in small amounts. Don’t give your dog more than 1 teaspoon of honey a day, especially if it’s a small dog. If you use raw honey, your best option, puppies less than a year old should not eat it because of bacterial spores that could be in it. 

Are mint and parsley SAFE FOR DOGS TO CONSUME?

Mint and parsley are great for freshening your pup’s breath. Make sure you give these herbs in moderation — no more than a few leaves a day. And never give your dog English/European pennyroyal mint as it can be toxic.

IS coconut oil SAFE FOR DOGS TO CONSUME?

Coconut oil can help stop bacteria from growing and spreading in your dog’s mouth. It can also help prevent dental disease by decreasing plaque.
