Maybe. Plain pancakes in moderation are unlikely to harm your dog, although some pets have wheat allergies or sensitivities to grains. However, leftover pancakes with toppings added—including sweets like syrup or jam—are less healthy for dogs, and should generally be avoided. Dogs can eat certain fruits like banana and blueberries, while others (like grapes) are toxic.
If your dog has dietary restrictions, such as lactose intolerance, check the pancakes’ ingredients.
If your dog has unusual symptoms after eating pancakes, talk to your vet about whether your dog could have a food allergy or intolerance.
