Is cheese toxic to dogs

Customer Question

Is all or any cheese toxic to a dog. Are there any side affects that would warrant avoiding giving cheese to a dog?

Hello,
Some dogs can have severe stomach upset or severe pancreatic inflammation from cheese. Most dogs stomach can handle the cheese okay, possibly with some diarrhea later. You can't predict what dog will have a problem with it, and most won't. Certainly if you have a dog with a history of stomach upset to different foods, particularly dairy products, I would avoid it.
Hope this helps,
Dr. Chenoa
