Cinnamon and cookies – Can dogs snack on Christmas cookies?

4 minutes

The Christmas season is known for baking delicious cookies in many households. Room scent and a sweet taste are simply part of the festive atmosphere. Since your four-legged friend probably enjoys standing at your feet while you bake, you might be wondering, "Can dogs eat cinnamon?" At alphazoo, your reliable expert for food and nutrition, we take a closer look at this topic.

Is cinnamon safe for dogs?

In general, cinnamon is safe for dogs in small amounts. It contains antioxidant properties and can help regulate blood sugar levels. However, a large amount of cinnamon can cause gastrointestinal problems in dogs. Therefore, it is important to only give your dog cinnamon occasionally and in small amounts.

Can dogs eat Christmas cookies?

While a small amount of cinnamon is fine for dogs, that doesn't mean your dog can snack on Christmas cookies. Many cookies contain other ingredients that can be harmful to your dog, such as chocolate, nuts, or raisins. Besides, cookie piles can also lead to excessive calorie intake and cause weight problems.

What happens if your dog eats too much cinnamon?

In large quantities, cinnamon can cause side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting, or changes in appetite and behavior. If you notice that your dog has eaten a large amount of cinnamon or foods containing cinnamon, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.

Healthy alternatives to Christmas cookies for dogs

There are many healthy alternatives to Christmas cookies that you can offer your dog. How about special dog treats or fresh fruit and vegetables, for example? At Alphazoo we offer a large selection of suitable dog snacks that your dog will love.

Conclusion

So, can dogs eat cinnamon? In small quantities and only occasionally, yes. However, it is better for your dog to avoid Christmas cookies.
