First, it’s important to know that gingerbread is just a spice. It has no nutritional value and can lead to stomach upset if eaten in large quantities. Gingerbread also contains sugar which may be harmful for some dogs with diabetes or other medical conditions such as pancreatitis or kidney disease. If your dog has any of these health issues, talk with your veterinarian before giving them this treat because they are more sensitive to the effects of sugar than healthy dogs. Here’s what you should do: measure out an appropriate amount (around one teaspoon per ten pounds) and give them about 15 minutes after feeding their regular meal so there will still be food in their system when they eat the gingerbread-containing goodies. Your vet might even recommend waiting 24
