Can Dogs Eat Froot Loops? 

By Coty Perry

Yes, dogs can eat Froot Loops but they’re not a good choice. This cereal is not healthy and it’s made with artificial colors, sugar, and refined grains. All of these ingredients are bad for your dog’s digestive system and they do nothing positive for their health. 

There are few things more delicious than a big bowl of cereal at breakfast. If your dog is a beggar, chances are you find them staring at you at the edge of the table every morning when you’re having your breakfast. 

While you might enjoy sugary cereals, you may wonder if dogs can have Froot Loops. Dogs can eat Froot Loops but they have no nutritional value and they contain a lot of ingredients that dogs shouldn’t necessarily have. 

In this guide, we’ll talk about whether or not Froot Loops are a good choice for your pup and if they should stop eating them all together.  

Should Dogs Eat Froot Loops? 

My previous point begs the question of whether not dogs should even have these in the first place. If you don’t have to give your dog Froot Loops, I wouldn’t. If they happen to lick some up off the floor or get into a box and eat a little, they’ll be okay. 

Froot Loops also contain a lot of trans fats which is not good for your dog’s heart. 

I would recommend against getting in the habit of getting them used to the sugary taste as well. They could end up liking it so much that they give you a hard time when you put their regular food out. 

How Often Can Dogs Eat Froot Loops? 

If you ever decide to allow your pup to eat Froot Loops, you’ll want to do it as little as possible. There is no nutritional value and it’s all empty calories. 

It’s also important to understand that a dog is not used to digesting these types of ingredients so it can put an unusual amount of stress on their body to process it. This leads to weight gain and reduced cardiovascular health. 

Can Puppies Eat Froot Loops? 

While it may be okay for your puppy to have Froot Loops, you’ll want to avoid giving them any as much as possible. The same rules apply for adult dogs. 

Froot Loops contain a ton of sugar and processed ingredients which isn’t benefiting your puppy’s health in any way. Instead, you’ll want to feed them foods that nourish their growth and development. 

If your pesky puppy gets into the cereal box and eats some Froot Loops, they’ll be okay. Just make sure it doesn’t happen too often. 

Final Thoughts

If you feel that it’s completely necessary to share your cereal, consider having a healthier option for yourself. Bran and whole grain cereals are a better option for dogs (and humans too). 

When you decide to give your dog a sugary cereal, only give them a little and be sure not to make a habit out of it!
