Maybe. Lucky Charms are technically safe for your dog to eat, but they’re not healthy and your vet would likely discourage it. (One could argue humans shouldn’t eat Lucky Charms!) Like most cereals, Lucky Charms are made with refined grains, which aren’t an essential ingredient in the canine diet (a.k.a. empty calories). Lucky Charms are also packed with sugar and preservatives, which are taxing to your dog’s digestive system and encourage unnecessary weight gain.
The Bottom Line
- Crunchy, grain-free dog treats like these are a healthier choice than cereal.
- If you feel compelled to share cereal, we suggest serving a more beneficial cereal, such as bran flakes.
- If you do offer your dog Lucky Charms, do so very sparingly and in very small amounts.
- Never offer Lucky Charms as a full meal or as an enticement for your dog to eat his usual food.
