Dear Dr. Alice, My sister gives her dog tons of candy and cookies. I don’t think this is right. Should I say something? Sincerely, Sweetie
You are right, but I would let it go. Part of having a pet is being able to indulge and share special things. If her dog has a solid gastrointestinal track and is not pooping everywhere post sugar or is not charging around the house post sugar high, then I would just leave it alone. An occasional sugar treat is fine for everyone–in my sweet-tooth opinion.
