  1. I have been giving my dog a pancake at breakfast time for the past 10 years and he has been fine. I usually buy the plain pancake mix, and I do not add anything in.

    I eat the pancakes with syrup, but I just give my puppy a plain one. One of my friends said I should look up if I should be giving my dog pancakes… After reading this I think it is fine. I have pancakes once a week at most, so it is not very often.

    Ill send this to my friend so they can see.

    1. Ok Derick, you were right… I thought they were much too unhealthy, but I guess on occasion its not too bad.
