Dog Facts

Do dogs like ice cream?

IcecreamSome dogs like ice cream, but it is not recommended to give ice cream to your dog. Any food containing sugar is not good for you dog and might lead to serious health issues like dental issues, obesity, diabetes and problems with digestive system.

Little ice cream every few months will probably not be a problem, but you should avoid chocolate ice cream, because chocolate is poison for dogs.

Anyway, it is probably best to avoid that because if your dog likes ice cream, there are higher chances that you will be asked for more in the future or that your dog will accidentally eat large amount of ice cream which might be a problem.

You may consider some alternatives, like special ice cream created for dogs using fruits (like strawberries) and low-fat yogurt.
