Yes. Bran flakes are high in fiber and great for your dog’s digestive health. They also help lower blood pressure and cholesterol while increasing your pet’s energy levels.
Dogs should enjoy bran flakes when served in moderation. Be sure to introduce bran flakes gradually because they can function as a laxative. A sudden increase in quantity could cause a shock to your dog’s system. Dogs will enjoy bran flakes:
- Free of additives or sugars
- Moistened with warm water (to soften flakes) and added to dry or wet food (bran flakes add calories, so decrease the portion of routine dog food when introducing bran flakes)
