Anyway, is it actually bad for them to have beer? I know it's NOT GOOD, as in healthy, but just curious if it's really bad? Just a random Monday thought
|I don't think it would be bad for them.....|
.....and probably gets better results than my lab who loved to steal drinks of my Mountain Dew!!!
|alot of em luv it, but sips are more like it. i didn't know hops can kill some breeds. |

|When Baley was very young--we had a friend from Wisconsin visiting- for an entire weekend he gave Baley a few licks each time he had a beer--to this day Baley sits expectantly in front of anyone drinking a beer from a bottle waiting on 'just a taste'! He loves it but we don't let him have very much at a time-|
|Our first dog, Button, would carry his dish in and drop it by Carl because he wanted beer. He got a little and never seemed to hurt him. Only dog we ever had that did that.|
|Mad prefers champagne, but a friend's OES, familiy as a matter of fact, used to wrap her paw around my friend's arm and pull the bottle over so she could have some. |
|Ok....so fair enough. It sounds like it's all good unless you're just stupid with it. He seems to like it so much that i wanted to give him more than a drop hahaha.|

Well...I have to ask...is he OLD enough to drink? Don't want to be contributing to the delinquency of a minor....
Mad was underage when she had her champagne, but she was celebrating her championship, so we let it slide
|Depends on if we're using European drinking laws|
|Well, I disagree with this completely. I believe alcohol, of any sort, is really bad for a dog...I mean, I enjoy wine myself, but do believe it is really bad to let your dog have any alcohol at all - including beer...And why give it to him? Might be cute and funny but why? Just my thoughts...|
|probably funny and cute. I didn't actually give my dog any, she helped herself |
Beer and horses is not a new concept, however, and my vet, who also gives an injection to the numb the site where she docks, has also been known to recommend a little wine or brandy for puppies after docking. I'm afraid to give them too much so have her give it to them. So it can be used for "medicinal purposes".
I don't think anyone is suggesting getting their dog drunk and they are susceptible to alchohol poisoning, just like we are. And some of them are, apparently, lushes.
Mad seems to like the bubbles. She could care less about beer. I feel the same way
|We have used it medicinally in our sheep.|
It is used to slow uterine contractions. We had a ewe who I had done a cerclage on as she was having a chronic uterine prolapse while gestating. When the pending prolapse was triggering contractions (and threatening my sutures), a can of beer was given to calm the contractions. It worked amazingly well. The ewe did go on to go full term and safely delivered her lambs.
|Alcohol poisoning is fairly common in dogs and cats. The amount consumed that becomes lethal of course depends on the dog's size. Little dog, little amount.....not good. If Fido hits the keg, induce vomiting to get the stuff out of his stomach. |
That said, Jack has a fondness for margaritas, but I don't share.....he might sneak a lap, but that's it!
|It may have some calming effect for a wild adolescent sheepie like Kenny!!!!!!!!|
|I just want to state again that no where did any of us say it was a good idea. It was simply a question I had on Monday. I'm not saying we're going to make Kenny drink beer, I was just curious as I let him lick the top of an empty bottle. It was mostly in good fun as others posted.|
|When I was in my teens, we had a AKC Irish Setter who got into a fully mixed rum and Coke and then the rum bottle after it got knocked over when she was a puppy. This dog should have grown to be 25" at the withers. Sadly after this little binge of hers, she never reached more than 20" It was like owning a miniature Irish Setter. Great dog, but not near show worthy at that point as she should have been.|
So I'd say nix the alcohol all together.
