Every time my owner cracks open a brew, my mouth starts to salivate. So to satisfy my slobbery condition, he indulges me by pouring some beer into his cupped palm for me to lap up. My question is this: Is beer OK for us canines?
Kono & Jim Harris
My gut reaction to your question is..."What are you kiddin' me bro? Does The Pope where a funny hat?! You bet it's OK for us!" But the legal suits we employ to sit around and tell us what we can't do have informed me that comments like that might be slightly negligible on my part, so I made a few prank calls to several of my favorite doggie docs. I got comments like, "I can't say that beer would be any better or any worse for dogs than it is for humans", "I would recommend alternative forms of stress relief such as feline chasing or rawhide chewies", and "Well, it is highly addictive and some canines have very delicate digestive systems." Draw your own conclusions, Kono, but I'd prefer to think that an occasional brew (consumed in moderate quantities of course...especially burrito dogs like Chihuahuas) would be acceptable for many dogs. I'm sure that there are a few pansies out there whose delicate digestive systems' might induce adverse reactions generating business for their local carpet cleaning service, but this Big Dog eats license plates for breakfast and needs a little Wasatch to wasatch it down with! Your best bet would be to consult your personal physician cause he knows your insides a lot better than I do... unless you were in that out of control party in the dog park last weekend.
Take Care, Kono
