Morning meal is the most delicious one, many think so. Maybe the reason of this is that after night we are hungry and the food we receive in the morning seems the tastiest. Dogs may have the same attitude, especially when they see yummy pancakes on the table.
Dog owner know that some human food is no harm for their pooch. However, they should also understand that such food is only for occasional consumption. You can give your dog a pancake, not a big portion, but this action must not be daily. Dog owners must also pay particular attention to the ingredients the product includes.
A medium pancake, which is about 100 grams, has approximately the following ingredients:
- Protein 6g.
- Fat 10g.
- Cholesterol 59mg.
- Sodium 439 mg.
- Potassium 132mg.
- Whole calories 227.
All the ingredients are safe for the dog; they will not harm a pet, but they are not healthy as well.
Consequently, you must not overfeed your dog pancakes, and you should not make a habit of giving your dog the tasty treat. Giving the food frequently may lead to obesity or diabetes.
Too much sugar, fat or dairy products need to be seriously limited for dogs due to the possibility of severe health complications. If you mistakenly gave your dog a flavored pancake, or if they got into some flavored pancakes, you should check the ingredients immediately. Depending on the flavoring you may have to see a vet.
All in all, pancakes with their core ingredients are not harmful to dogs. However, the components may become detrimental if you frequently feed your dog with the treat. Pancakes with nuts or chocolate should not be used for dogs, as well as those with additional butter or sweets.
