Can Dogs Eat Popcorn?
Is it safe for dogs to eat popcorn?
The answer is Yes and No.
Yes, plain, air-popped popcorn is safe for dogs to eat in small quantities.
No, human grade popcorn pulled off the supermarket shelf that is oil-popped and coated in toppings such as sugar, salt or butter is not.
Which Popcorn is Best for Dogs?
The plainer the pop-corn the better, and air-popped is best. Plain popcorn is a low-calorie dog treat. Popcorn covered in butter (even fake butter), salt, and seasonings can cause stomach issues for our furry friends, adds unnecessary calories, and is best avoided.
Doggy Daily Popcorn sprinkled in Doggy Daily, the all-natural superfood supplement for dogs is a treat worth having. Designed with vets, Doggy Daily Supplement has been formulated to help protect and restore the gut health of our beloved dogs. It gives popcorn a safe, healthy and tasty boost.
How much is too much?
Popcorn is a treat and therefore should be kept to no more than 10% of your dog’s daily calorie intake. About a handful for a medium to large dogs is plenty and, just like any dog treat, should not be included as part of their regular diet.
Doggy Daily Popcorn comes in small 12.5 gm bags and can be sealed and stored for up to 7 days.
