  • Unless they have gotten into pesticides, it is probably fine. The insect would have to sting or bit the palate, pretty much do do any damage before the acid dissolve them. It could happen

  • Mine used to eat flies till she got too old and slow to catch them. My first dog, a golden retriever, stuck her face in a pile of ants once and her muzzle got all swollen up from the bites, but she got a lot of bites all at once.

  • Our 1 dog used to be an expert fly catcher. She'd always get them when they buzzed around the windows. As long as your dog doesn't try to eat a stinging insect, a little extra protein won't hurt :p
