Does your puppy look at you with little eyes of desire when you are eating an ice cream? How many times have you been tempted to give it a little? Surely once in an oversight your dog has managed to lick an ice cream. Perhaps you think that nothing happens because there is some ice cream in the dogs’ food. Well this is a mistake!
Dogs do not tolerate the high amounts of lactose contained in ice cream
Dogs should not eat ice cream because they can get sick. If a dog eats ice cream it will not become intoxicated, but gastrointestinal diseases or problems such as diarrhea or flatulence may appear. This is because the ice cream has lactose and dogs do not tolerate it well, especially in large quantities.
