Maybe. This question usually comes up exclusively around homemade dog biscuits. If you know your dog doesn’t have a problem eating wheat (a.k.a. no wheat allergies), then white flour is an option.
If your dog does have a wheat allergy, or you suspect she might, look for an alternative. But even if your dog is not allergic to wheat, white flour isn’t the best option out there. It’s highly treated and stripped of most nutrients. It mainly functions to bind ingredients or add texture and height to what you’re baking.
For better health benefits, we recommend a flour with more nutrients, such as whole-wheat flour, buckwheat flour, or a nut flour.
