WATCH: When is it safe for your dog to have a beer?
LOS ANGELES, CA - The sun is shining, the grill is fired up, and you can sit outside and enjoy an ice cold beer with your…dog?
Veterinarians will tell you that dogs should never be given beer, because their livers don’t metabolize alcohol in the same way humans’ do. The site www.canigivemydog.com/beer makes it clear that “no matter how much they beg, alcoholic beverages should be off limits to pets.”
But apparently dog owners are so tired of drinking alone that a company called Woof & Brew released a beer specifically for dogs.
Even though it has no alcohol, or hops, or carbonation, it’s otherwise meant to recreate the beer experience as closely as possible in a way that is safe for our four legged friends. The formula contains barley malt, dandelion, flax, and “chicken flavoring”... as all the best drinks do. Sounds delicious.
