Maybe. If your dog has eaten a snickerdoodle or two, he’s probably just fine. There’s nothing toxic in a snickerdoodle, but the cookies do contain quite a bit of sugar, which dogs simply don’t need in their diet. Sugar provides zero nutritional benefits. Over time, sugar contributes to weight gain and diabetes. We encourage you to share a healthier treat with your dog instead.
Symptoms to Look For
If your dog has eaten a plate of snickerdoodles, she may experience shaking (from the sugar overload), vomiting, or diarrhea. But she should stabilize after a few hours. If not, call your vet.
