Can dogs eat cheese? Good news, YES! Yes, dogs can eat cheese. It is important to note that while it is safe for dogs to eat cheese, it may not always be a good idea. Some dogs are in fact lactose intolerant. The best way to figure out if your dog can digest cheese without issues is to slowly introduce cheese to your dog, either as a treat or training motivation tool.
The reason you may want to give your dog cheese is that it contains protein, calcium, vitamin A, essential fatty acids, and B-complex vitamins. The cons to feeding your dog cheese are that many are high in fat. Never feed your dog cheeses that are blends of other ingredients as they may cause herbs and other ingredients that are harmful to dogs. See foods that are harmful to your dog.
If you want to make a healthier cheese treat try low-fat cheeses, like mozzarella, cottage cheese, or goat cheese.
