A waman gave my daughter a dog and said she had to get its teeth pulled because the owner before her gave it bread? Can that really happen?

  • I dont see why that would happen -- dogs teeth are meant to rip and tear.

  • What kind of dog is it? I know it shouldn't matter, but I'm curious.. I don't think bread will hurt a dog. I'm not an expert, but I have been a dog owner for many years.

  • I've had dogs for 25 years and never heard that.

  • I know that people that raise pits have their teeth pulled because they are the dogs that they train the other pits to fight. So if they don't have teeth it keeps them from biting the fighting dogs( the better dogs in their opinion). I know it sounds horrible but it happens, and the people that do it should have their teeth pulled out...

  • MrsLeftlane... so terribly sad :-(

    TO OP: Bread is bad to everyones teeth (lots of sugar & stuff).. but was the dog on a bread only diet or something? because that just seems very strange.. im guessing there is more behind it than that..

  • No, that person is just making crap up. Or, whoever told her that is lying. The previous owner neglected her pet's dental health, plain and simple.

  • Bread is bad for dogs period. It has lots of sugar and wheat! Many dogs today are itchy because of allergies. Most of these allergies come from the wheat and corn ingredients in their food.

  • Brread is bad for dogs but it would not affect the teeth. She may just need a dental.
