Do you love Skittles?

Well, if you have a dog at home, it’s important to know whether or not they are safe for them.

In this article, we will discuss the risks and benefits of giving your furry friend these tasty treats. It is best to check with your veterinarian before feeding Skittles to your dog because there may be certain health conditions that make them unsafe.

If you must feed them, do so in moderation-no more than a few per day-and always supervise while they eat! If you put them in a treat bag for your dog, make sure to remove the paper that surrounds each individual Skittle.

They are not poisonous per se, but they can cause digestive irritation if eaten whole or in large quantities! The most common side effects of eating too many skittles include stomach aches and diarrhoea which may lead to dehydration.

These symptoms should subside within twenty-four hours provided treatment is received quickly enough. Now that we have discussed the risks of feeding dogs Skittles, it’s time to explore some benefits! Dogs love these brightly coloured candies and will be more than happy with just one or two at a time (properly supervised).
