Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Please don't give this a second thought, a little bit of bacon now and again as a treat is not going to harm your dogs as long as they are otherwise on a balanced diet. Really this is like the situation in people, a little bit of fatty food now and again is fine, but if you eat large amounts every day for all your life then eventually you might suffer adverse health effects.

But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Why is everything saying they can get pancreatitis or bloat if they eat it? I’ve never given them bacon before and they only eat dog food and dog treats. I thought I was treating them when I gave them the bacon.

Glad to talk this over with you further ...

Like I said it is a question of excess, a little bit of rich fatty " human " food as an occasional treat is no problem, I certainly give my own dogs such things now and again. But avoid giving large amounts frequently,

Regards,

Dr Scott
