Can dogs eat oreos?

My cat Lacey likes to do her business on the counter top and there are two Oreos on the counter where the dog can get to them. I'm not sure whether this is a good thing. I'm trying to encourage her not to go on the counter top because I don't want my dog to eat them. I've tried taking them away.

He doesn't like them because they look like "food". A couple of weeks ago he ate a couple of the Oreos but he wouldn't eat another one. But my sister took a couple of them to him and he gobbled them up.

I've tried taking them away but he eats and eats and eats. I'm not sure whether I should be concerned with him eating the Oreos.

I'm not saying this has to be done under any certain circumstance.

I wouldn't worry about it unless he's actually eating them right out of your hand or your dog has a history of eating what isn't given to them.

Unless you're going to feed them to your dog I'd just throw them away.

And if you're worried about your dog eating the remaining Oreos try putting the Oreos in a jar (with the lid tightly secured) and giving it to her. If your dog is too aggressive to be trusted with something out of hand then you should be able to trust her to eat the ones in the jar.

That might work, but he'll probably make a play for the jar, anyway, which will then require me to give him a time-out, and then he'll have gotten a full serving of Oreos. Or, he'll eat the ones that are in the jar, get a little disgusted with the ones still on the table, and attack them...

I've only heard of dogs eating Oreos, but my dog has never really done that so I'm not sure if that's just my particular dog or if other dogs will do that. She's more of a savy dog and likes to play tug of war or take things from me that I don't want her to.

It's usually better to keep her occupied with something she likes, because if she eats off of the counter or table you won't have to worry about her eating them. I'd recommend just sitting there with your dog and eating some cookies for the two of you.

I don't think she likes to eat that many cookies at once, it just seems like she was doing it so we'd notice.

I'll just try to get some leftovers of the Oreos and maybe do a new batch of some other cookies.

That might be the better plan. Also, just because she was doing it doesn't mean she liked it. I would probably just leave them out for a few days and see what she does. Do not overfeed your dogs though. I always make sure she is getting half her calories in in order to avoid feeding problems.

We had a dog who was eating a lot of my food, and if you let them eat a lot of food without supervision they could be at risk for obesity and other problems. Just be aware.

I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk about this more on camera, I think it was a pretty big deal!

Thanks for posting this, it is important that we discuss this. Especially in light of this. It's really common for a female dog to eat a LOT of food - the problem is when she actually becomes obese and the rest of the family is unaware of it. The good news is we just had this issue and our dogs are fine.

I've tried to find some info about this but I have no idea what it is called. It's possible that the dog might be an anorexic (it's a word I learned watching CSI, I'm no expert in medical terms) or it could be a female problem. It's possible that we could both be having a problem. I don't know what to suggest - it's an odd problem that seems like it will just go away. We'll wait a couple of days, see what happens.

It's an issue that most people have no idea about and then have no clue how to recognize. It's possible to be "pre-diabetic", and to get a dog who eats a lot of food and gets fat and starts to lose their fur, it's definitely one of the "worst case scenario" problems that could happen. A dog can also get that way with no symptoms of diabetes. As far as I can tell it's a problem that only occurs in females and can be recognized by a vet to be a major health risk. I'm really not sure what the answer is to it other than making sure your vet knows about it and then keeping your eyes on your dog for a while. At least that's what we did.

But this doesn't sound like what your dog is doing. When I was a vet student we had one woman bring in a dog who was so skinny that it was obvious there was something wrong. I had never seen a dog that skinny before, and neither had any of the vet students. I suspect she had a very small litter, and it just went on from there. She was at the vet's all the time, but I never got a chance to examine her thoroughly. We did blood work and saw that she was fine. I wasn't aware of a "pre-diabetic" problem until later. It's possible this is what you have, but I would like to see it before I go making assumptions.

Yes, my dog gets super fat and does in fact eat a lot of food...but he is not drinking water either. I have not noticed any change in her gait, she eats and drinks as she always has...but when we first got her
