Why dogs hate the taste of chocolate
Chocolate in dogs seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. It's everywhere in today's society. Chocolate is not just for chocolate lovers anymore! People who do not have the slightest taste for chocolate are trying to find ways to get their kids, or the kids of their friends, to eat the fudgy-ness. The dog lovers of course are finding ways to include their canine buddies in chocolate-filled celebrations. And just as the human race has their own list of foods that you must or must not feed your dog, we thought it was high time we told you about all the 'dog approved' chocolate-y treats you can feed your dog.
Chocolate in dogs is just as safe as any other treat that you can give your dog. It is completely natural for a dog to eat something that you offer him. There are, however, some cautions you need to take into account when you are planning to give your dog chocolate. You should never give your dog a treat that contns coffee.
Chocolate contns caffeine, but coffee contns something far worse. Coffee can cause a deadly condition in dogs known as coffee intoxication. To stay on the safe side, never give a dog a cup of coffee. However, there are plenty of chocolate products on the market that are caffeine free.
But even if your dog has never had a cup of coffee before, he can probably still have a treat made with it. A cup of coffee is just a natural and harmless thing for dogs to eat, and if they do have an ounce of coffee in them, the effect is too small to make your dog ill.
The only problem can occur if your dog gets a stomach upset afterwards. It is possible that your dog's stomach can become sensitive to caffeine, and he may experience some upset stomach symptoms such as vomiting. If this happens to your dog, you should take him to the vet as soon as possible, because he needs to be treated with anti-biotics.
Even if your dog's stomach is perfectly fine after he has eaten a treat with chocolate in it, you still need to be careful. The same rules about preventing your dog from eating a whole bunch of chocolate at once still apply.
When you are having a treat made with chocolate, you need to make sure that your dog does not lick the chocolate off his bowl before you have it out for him. If you let him have a tiny amount, he might get a bit of chocolate on his tongue. This is not a problem, but he might taste a little bit of it later. So if you only want a tiny amount of chocolate in your dog's treat, try to put it in his mouth in front of you. You should also always leave a little bit of the chocolate at the end of the treat.
So what can you give your dog if you want to give him a small amount of chocolate? Try something that has a lot of chocolate in it. A chocolate dough ball or a piece of cheesecake are perfect. Or you can try giving him a small amount of cheese. It is not something that he will be very fond of, but it can be an easy way to give your dog a little bit of chocolate.
One other thing that you can do to make your dog less sensitive to chocolate is to make sure that your dog does not get too much chocolate in his body. Your dog's body can get sensitive to chocolate over time, especially if your dog ate too much of it before. It is also possible that your dog's stomach can become sensitive to caffeine, and he may experience some upset stomach symptoms such as vomiting. If this happens to your dog, you should take him to the vet as soon as possible, because he needs to be treated with anti-biotics.
Even if your dog's stomach is perfectly fine after he has eaten a treat with chocolate in it, you still need to be careful. The same rules apply to eating treats that contn chocolate. You need to make sure that you do not eat any of the chocolate yourself. You also need to make sure that any treats that you have given your dog that are not too chocolate-rich contn at least 50% chocolate. You do not want to risk getting too much chocolate into your dog. The amount that your dog will be able to safely eat depends on his size and the size of the treat.
Make sure that you always keep the amount that you give your dog with each meal the same. Do not increase the amount that you give him if he seems like he is having trouble with too much chocolate. Giving your dog too much chocolate is dangerous to his health, and it can even cause your dog to become sick.
If you want to keep your dog healthy and do not want him to get sick, you need to make sure that he does not have too much chocolate in his body. You do not want to risk your dog being sick from too much chocolate. You may want to keep an eye out for your dog if you notice that he is not drinking as much water or eating as many meals as usual.
The chocolate will also make your dog's tongue yellow. If your dog has been licking the treat, he will have yellow stned tongues for a while, and that is why you should try to prevent your dog from licking chocolate. As long as your dog does not have any more chocolate than he is supposed to have, you do not have to worry about any of the chocolate tasting bitter. If your dog is licking the treats because he cannot reach his food, you should make sure that he does not lick any chocolate.
If you want to make sure that your dog is healthy, you need to make sure that he does not have too much chocolate in his body. Giving your dog too much chocolate is not safe. Chocolate can be very dangerous to your dog's health if he eats too much of it. If your dog eats too much chocolate, he may get very sick.
