Essentially, dogs became man’s best friend back when they still looked a whole lot like wolves. The physical changes, which led to dogs that look like everything from a Great Dane to a Chihuahua, were secondary. But just imagine hanging around a cuddly, domesticated wolf back in the day.

While cheese can be safe to feed to your dog, there are some things to remember. Cheese is high in fat, and feeding too much to your dog regularly can cause weight gain and lead to obesity. Even more problematic, it could lead to pancreatitis, a serious and potentially fatal illness in dogs...

Therefore, it’s better to feed your dog low-fat cheeses, like mozzarella, cottage cheese, or a soft goat cheese. Cottage cheese is lower in fat and sodium than other cheeses, helping reduce the risk of obesity. Cottage cheese is also lower in lactose, thus reducing the likelihood of intestinal upset...

It’s important to never try to conceal antibiotics in cheese as antibiotics may bind to the calcium found in dairy products. Once this happens, it may no longer be absorbed by the intestines, making the medication less effective.
