Can Dogs Eat Oatmeal Cream Pies? (The Risks!)

No, dogs shouldn’t eat oatmeal cream pies.

Oatmeal cream pies are light and they’ll most likely expand in his stomach after your dog eats them.

Once they expand, they start to become a dark hard rock-type material that’s not easy to take out, so if your dog has eaten a few of these oatmeal cream pies, try and induce vomiting so he throws them up before they start to become hard and start to expand in his stomach.

Can oatmeal cream pies kill a dog?

Yes, they can. If enough oatmeal cream pies are eaten by your dog, he will start to get sick and become constipated to the point where he might have a hard time passing feces or even trying to defecate.

He’ll most likely become nauseous and lethargic very quickly after eating these oatmeal cream pies.

What to do if my dog eats oatmeal cream pies?

First, try to induce vomiting by giving your dog one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide for every ten pounds that he weighs.

If the oatmeal cream pies are partially digested and haven’t started to expand in his stomach yet, it’s possible you can get away with just inducing vomiting.

However, if your dog has eaten a few oatmeal cream pies and they’ve already started to expand in his stomach, you’re going to have to take him to the vet so he can get an x-ray of his stomach.

The oatmeal cream pies will show up as a dark spot on the picture because they’ll have been in his stomach for such a long time that they’ll be partially decomposed or even fully decomposed.

The vet might have to surgically remove the oatmeal cream pies before they start to expand in his stomach and cause issues if inducing vomiting doesn’t help.

What should I feed my dog instead?

Dogs should eat the regular dog food that you give him if he has a sensitive stomach. You can make his dog food at home with boiled boneless chicken breast, carrots and potatoes to help soothe his stomach.

You shouldn’t feed your dog human food unless you want to feed him something that he wouldn’t normally get to eat such as oatmeal cream pies.

He’s not going to like the taste of them and he’ll most likely refuse to eat them even if you offer them.

In other words, don’t give him human food because then his stomach will start becoming used to eating that stuff and it will be harder for him to digest regular dog food in the future.

In fact, you’re better off not feeding your dog anything other than regular dog food so his stomach becomes used to eating the same thing every day.

Feeding your dog natural fruits like bananas, apples, and blueberries is the best thing you can do, other than feeding him normal dog food that should be a part of his regular diet anyway.

Summary

Dogs shouldn’t eat oatmeal cream pies. Oatmeal cream pies are light and will likely expand in their stomach after your pup eats them.

Once they expand, they start to become this dark hard rock-type material that’s not easy to take out so if your pooch has eaten a few of these oatmeal cream pies try and induce vomiting so he throws them up before they get too hard in his belly!
