Can Dogs Eat Fig Newtons?

If you love Fig Newtons like I do, you may be wondering if your dogs can eat them too. Can dogs eat Fig Newtons you ask?

Well, they really should NOT eat Fig Newtons at all. They are not exactly toxic for them, but the amount of sugar contained within these treats is not good for dogs. Dogs should not be fed high amounts of sugar ever.

Make sure to not give your dog that has a high amount of sugar in it. If you do, this can make your dog very hyper and I think you know that that means. Also, if you regularly give your pet foods that have a lot of sugar, they could end up getting diabetes.

If you stumbled across this thread because your dog ate a Fig Newton and you do not know what to do, there is no need for worrying. Fig Newtons are not toxic for dogs and a couple of them will not cause any real problems. To make sure this does not happen again, keep your treats away from your dog so they can not get at them.

To conclude, Fig Newtons are okay for your dog as they are not toxic, but you should not let them eat these treats because of the high sugar content!

No, Fig Newtons are a food. They cannot eat dogs. Even if Fig Newtons were conscious beings and had proper digestive systems, I believe they would find most dogs too large for consumption.

It's okay Brother Bob. I too succumbed to my love for my animal and his large puppy eyes and fed him one of my Fig Newtons. This was a few hours ago and he seems fine, but I've been giving him a lot of hugs so maybe he was sick and now feels better.

Thank you. As a proud dog (and Fig Newton) lover, I wanted to share this information with my peers here on Ultimate Guitar Dot Com to ensure the safety of everyone's pets (and Fig Newtons).

My cousin is a veterinarian and she gave enough red wine to her dog that the dog got drunk. So like, what about red wine?

According to the authorities, "I love them and wanted to share the experience" and animals have their limitations. That's what they told me.
