Energy drink

A representation of Energy drink

Energy drinks are popular, but not harmless. If they are not healthy for us humans, what about our four-legged friends?

What is an energy drink?

An energy drink is a beverage that usually contains caffeine, taurine, sugar and other ingredients designed to boost performance and well-being. There are different brands and flavors of energy drinks.

Are energy drinks good for dogs?

The short answer is No. Energy drinks are not good for dogs and can even be dangerous. Dogs have a different metabolism to humans and react differently to the ingredients in energy drinks. Caffeine, for example, can cause heart palpitations, tremors, seizures and even death in dogs.

Taurine, an amino acid contained in energy drinks, can lead to heart problems and high blood pressure in dogs. Sugar can lead to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay in dogs. Other ingredients such as colorants and preservatives can cause allergies and gastrointestinal problems in dogs.

It is clear that there is nothing better for our dogs to drink than water. However, if your four-legged friend has accidentally come into contact with an energy drink, you should keep a close eye on your dog and always contact a vet if in doubt.
