Maybe. Some dogs are allergic to corn and should therefore avoid corn flakes. Otherwise, it’s safe for dogs to eat corn flakes, but keep in mind that the cereal is high in carbohydrates and contains zero protein, so you’re feeding your pet empty calories that don’t provide much lasting energy.
The Bottom Line
Corn flakes are an okay treat in moderation (if your dog doesn’t have a corn allergy), but you’re not doing your pet any favors in the nutrition department.
