Popcorn is something that we all enjoy especially while watching a movie with our spouse. With that said, there’s onething that might bring a lot of joy to your dog and is to see you toss them popcorn while having a movie night.
However, you might be unsure if it is safe to actually feed your dog popcorn because you don’t know if it can result in them being ill or have any negative reactions. Though it can be challenging to resist those beautiful dog eyes, it is always best to be on the safe side by simply consulting your veterinarian for proper advice.
Can Labradoodles Eat Popcorn?
Popcorn itself is not considered to be bad for your dogs once it is plained or air popped. Make sure when feeding your dog it’s only done in moderation since your dog will be able to eat it in small amount and cab be given as a form of treat. We also think you should follow the 10% rule when feeding your dog in order to ensure that your dog remains healthy.
Is Popcorn Good For Labradoodles?
While there’s no evidence that can prove popcorn to be bad for dogs, you should only feed them in moderation. Apart from that, the corn kernels contain minerals including manganese, zinc, fiber, magnesium and vitamins which is considered to be great for dogs, but the thing is that your dog’s should be getting these from their daily food anyway.
We only recommend giving your dog popcorn as long as it is plain and air-popped popcorn. However, you should definitely stay away from added seasoning such as butter, salt and sugar as it can be bad for your dog’s. Let’s not forget that these toppings are high in fat and having too much may result in your dog having upset stomach, dehydration and even causing other health issues.
Let’s not forget about the unpopped popcorn or even partially popped kernels because of their ability to cause a choking hazard or may even get stuck between your dog’s teeth causing them to be uncomfortable.
Another thing when it comes to feeding your labradoodles popcorn is the fact that they might be allergic to eating it. If you have a idea that your dog have sensitivity, then you should refrain from giving them popcorn as it could lead to negative reactions such as gas, diarrhea, etc.
How Should I Feed My Labradoodle Popcorn?
If you are having a movie, make sure before giving your dog popcorn to eat, you should make sure it is plained and air-popped only. Air-popped doesn’t actually require much to do, all you need to do is place it in a popcorn machine, microwave or stove.
Once you have done popping, make sure that you take the time out to remove the partially popped kernels and only give them a small amount. Never feed your dog the added toppings because it is known to be bad for their health.
