Our dog is a seven month old Shih Tzu. Is it ok to feed him cheese (cheddar)? Thanks.

Im sure small small peices as an occasional treat would be fine...just don't over do it. My toy poodle gets very constipated when he eats cheese even in small amounts.

Yes small amounts, or you will have a fat constipated dog on your hands. Sad but true.

Is it also possible for cheese to give a dog diarreah and dehydration. He had it on Sunday and is now at the vet's overnight for dehydration.

I have given my dogs cheese over the years and have never had any problems. Just as the people above said, just make sure it is in small amounts and not too much. My dogs LOVE cheese!! Every time they hear me unwrapping it (whether it is for them or a sandwich!) they come running from wherever they are. Oh and peanut butter is a great treat for dogs too.

Giving your dog any new foods can cause diarreah(sp)and or vomiting, their system may not be handling it well. And with diarreah can come de-hydration because they are basically having very wet stools that are depleteling their bodies of water in their system. So go easy on treats. Try to look for all natural treats or doggie cookies. Possibly even from the same maker of the kibble he already eats.

i would advice against giving cheese to your dog as some dogs react to it my dog had a servere alergic reaction to the cheese and caused servere diareah and vomiting i own a german shepherd and her stomach is hardy to literally everything but each owner decides for themselves if its ok i try to not give my dog anything but dog treats and her own food but you will all know what its like they have a tendancy to make you feel guilty when your eating and they are not.. as for peanut butter never give your dog this as it aggrivates the roof of the dogs mouth and can also cause stomach upset i have bred german shepherds for a few years and i mainly stick to whats best for them but like i say its the preference for there owner

Just wanted to let you know that my sister sold her Shih Tzu back to the original owner this morning. It was just something that didn't work out. We hope to have another dog in the future.
