    Are Cheerios safe for feeding your dog?
    will07 posted:
    I have a 8 month old male Toy Pomeranian and when he stayed at my friends house while I was on vacation he started giving him cheerios as a treat. Now since, I've been back my dog loves eating cheerios but I'm concerned that they not be good for him. What is your opinion?
    rohvannyn responded:
    They aren't that great for him but they wouldn't really hurt him either. If he gets them in moderation and doesn't have any digestive problems, it'll be okay. Just make sure to give the plain ones not the frosted ones, nobody needs the extra sugar.

    Thanks for letting me know!
