Can dogs eat pasta?

Dogs can eat pasta in small servings.

Pasta is a very popular kind of noodle around the world. Pasta’s main ingredients are flour and water, and some are added eggs or oil. It’s safe for dogs.

Cooked pasta is easier to digest than the uncooked. You’d better feed dogs with plain pasta, especially not to feed table scraps that include pasta because it may contain some sauce and flavor, which is bad for dogs.

Whole-grain pasta has extra health benefits for your pet, because whole-grain pasta is a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates, which give dog energy. Besides, it’s low in calories and fat. Whole-grain pasta is commonly thought as healthy dog food.

Some dogs are allergic to wheat, so be careful if you introduce the pasta in the dog’s diet at the first time.

Although pasta has many benefits for dogs, you shouldn’t make it as dog’s regular food. Pasta is just a great dog treat, eating too much also can cause digestive problems like diarrhea and stomach pain.
