my 4 year old shiba inu loves cheese-preferably slices of kraft american cheese or sliced munster cheese. how often is it safe to feed this to him? i have been giving him about a half a slice every other day. is it okay to increase this to every day? i usually shred it up and sprinkle it in his dry food (eukenuba) & then pour a little warm water in it & stir it up, so he has a "cheese stew".

I feed my Welsh Springer Spaniel cheese usually once every few days. You should make sure it's cheddar cheese and preferably "Old" and not Mild. Also processed cheese usually gives mine diarrhea, but if yours can tolerate it then why not!

A little is ok, if you notice and weight gain or constipation I would stop and give only once in a while. Just a little peice instead of what your giving.

My agility trainer uses string cheese as treats in class, it sticks to stuff like the teeter totter. We may go through two or three of those sticks a session. He only goes to agility class once a week though and I use dry treats at home, usually Old Mother Hubbards lil tiny bones, I break them in half and keep them in my treat pouch. My dog has not had any issues with the cheese, I just prefer to use the dry, easier to store, and don't have to worry about refrigeration. Of course my dog LOVES my trainer!

This is strange to me. I was told it wasn't good to give dogs chocolate or cheese. Oh well. I would think that with the rate of tumors on the rise with dogs that it would be best to give a dog cheese with minimal processing & chemicals. American is loaded with chemicals & high sodium.
