Can my dog eat cheddar cheese?

While small amounts of cheddar cheese might not be harmful to most dogs, it's not an ideal treat due to its high-fat and lactose content, which can lead to digestive issues like diarrhea or pancreatitis in some dogs, especially if they are puppies.

Additionally, some dogs may be lactose intolerant, so it's best to avoid dairy altogether.

If you want to offer your dog a treat, opt for dog-safe alternatives like carrots or apples.

Always consult with your veterinarian before introducing new foods to your dog's diet.
