Jello and dogs
 
Is jello made from Knox unflavored gelatin and sugar free, fresh juices safe to feed to my dog? Saw on a different Q&A forum that it might make my dogs ride the Hershey Squirts coaster. On the flip, others have stated it is perfectly safe.

Would anyone like to share their knowledge on this particular topic?

Thanks!!

I have no idea. Why would you want to feed your dog jello :shrug:?

I would not. Some artificial sweeteners are toxic to dogs, there is one in particular but I cant remember the name. Besides it might upset his tummy and make a mess :sick:
Why do you want to give him jello? :laughing: If he likes sweet stuff you could bake him some yummy dog cookies, I think there are some recipes on this site. Or just plain fruit, apples, bananas, etc (no seeds)

It's xylitol that is toxic to dogs. Aspartame is normally the artifical sweetener you find in food products, where xylitol is normally found in sugar free gum. But I think the poster was talking about fruit juice with no sugar added rather than using an artificially sweetened product.

I dont' THINK it's unsafe persay, but I have to jump on the "why" bandwagon here :confused:

jello for hydration paralysis jaw.
 
Our dog has trigeminal neuritis & is unable to swallow, eat or drink, as the cranial nerve affected affects his jaw musles, etc.

In order to feed him food must be put in the back of his throat, his jaw closed manually. Also, he can not drink! Water all spills out, we are experimenting with a turkey baster.

My idea to keep him hydrated is to prepare blocks of JELLOW & give him this. I will use no salt, no sugar gelatine prep. from the health store.

Any feed back, advise please.

Thanks.

Kandy, xylitol might be found in anything that is artificially sweetened. Yogurt is one to watch out for. It is in Rescue Remedy candies too. Just so you know. :)

hotdok, I hope your dog is going to be OK. Sounds awful. Is that like trigeminal neuralgia that people get? I know a lady with it. She didn't have any paralysis but I suppose it is different in different folks. She was in terrible pain, I hope your dog is not.

ETA: Oh my gosh, this is a really old thread. hotdok, perhaps you should start your own thread to get the answers you need. Good luck.

I give my dogs jello
 
My vet said its ok. I make my dogs jello, I actually have some in the fridge now. I use left over stocks from when we cook. just make sure you salt your food after you cook it that way its not in the broth. They love it and no runs. We did it initially for our older dog. He was having some joint issues and thought it works for people and jello is made from animal product so we gave it a try and have noticed a big improvement. I follow the Knox jello packet instructions but double the amount of jello to get firmer cubes.
