Do your Havs like coffee??? Sally just adores it and every chance she gets she will stick her little snout into a coffee mug and drink as much a she can. I'm hoping it isn't bad for her. It does become a bit of a nuisance because you can't leave your coffee for a minute and we are afraid she will spill it on the rug.
I'm thinking that coffee is not good for dogs....the caffeine can create irregular heart beats, etc. Others may be more informed, but I wouldn't let Sally drink your coffee. Do you use cream and/or sugar? It might actually be that flavor that she is after. You can do a google search on the toxic foods for animals and coffee comes up.
No, Gucci won't touch my coffee and I practically drink it ALL day. I would be careful giving it, too. I doubt there is much research on it out there, but caffeine might be bad for them. They digest things differently than us, even tylenol or motrin can be toxic to them, whereas it usually isn't with us.
Lily & Lexi also find a sitting coffee cup, very appealing, and will stick their noses in an drink if it is left out. Logan has never shown an interest, but then again we are a lot more careful with our cups now. I agree that it is probably NOT very good for them. Gosh, its not even good for us!!
This is why people are afraid of salt. I'm going to email them about this, eliminating salt completely from a pet can kill them! Eeks. It contradicts the AAFCO's recommendations.
The Association of American Feed Control Officials recommend that dry dog foods contain at least 0.3% (and dry cat foods contain at least 0.2% sodium) for both maintenance and to support normal growth and development. These are minimum recommended levels.
As we all know, sodium is an essential mineral for life. It is found in the blood and in the fluid that surrounds the cells in our body. Sodium maintains the cellular environment and prevents cells from swelling or dehydrating. It is also important for maintaining proper nerve and muscle cell function.
The owner of Dusty's brother sent me a couple of puppy photos of Dusty a while ago. Here's one of her licking someone's Starbucks Frappuchino cup! We don't encourage her to drink coffee as a regular thing though!
Nico has never been anywhere where he could get at coffee, so I don't know if he likes it. It's not something I want him to try. He does seem to like tea, though. My daughter spilled some iced tea on the floor and he loved cleaning that up before I picked him up and took him away from it. I didn't think tea would be good for him, so I've now forbidden my children to spill tea (yeah, like that will work - they spill everything!)
