Is flour bad for dogs? If yes, why?

is white flour bad for dogs? If yes, why?

Hi Andie,

White flour is bad for dogs and humans because it has no nutritional value for either.

Let me know if you wish to discuss this further.

Best wishes,

Reply to Terri Riba's Post: What happen if a dog eat something that has white flour in it? because somebody bought me a box of treats which has white flour in it. And I gave one to my dog. I stopped giving him when I found out that white flour is dangerous. Thank you


Hi Andrea,

Absolutely nothing will happen to your dog from eating these! They are NOT toxic or anything like that.

It is fine for him to have them as long as he eats dog food too.

Let m know if you still have any questions about this.

Sincerest best wishes,

Thank you for an asnwer. I will make sure that he has a dog food along with it if he eat something that made from white flour. I appericate your time. I guess its ok to give it to him once in awhile. ?

Oh sure he can even have it every other day and he will be just fine.

You are very welcome. It is my pleasure to help someone as lovely as you and your sweet baby.

I will always be here for both of you.
