Apple Pie & Dogs

The good news is that a small amount of apple pie will not harm your dog! However, he should not eat apple pie on a regular basis. The sugar and fat in the pie could make your dog obese and cause serious health issues such as diabetes. But if your dog has a bite or more of apple pie, he will be OK.

On the other hand, if your canine companion eats ½ a pie or more, he could become sick.

Symptoms of Apple Pie Ingestion in Dogs

You may notice these symptoms if your dog has eaten apple pie:

These symptoms should last no longer than 12 to 24 hours. If they last longer, it’s best to call the vet.

Treatment of Apple Pie Ingestion in Dogs

The vet has medications that can stop diarrhea and vomiting. That’s great news! They will check your fur baby to see if he’s dehydrated. If so, the vet may give your canine companion an IV with fluids to rehydrate him.

In some cases, your fur baby may also need to be treated with medications that protect the digestive tract.

The good news is that most dogs will make a full recovery after overeating apple pie! In the future, it’s a good idea to keep this and other pies out of your dog’s reach. You’ll both be happier for it!
