Tapioca Starch Precautions For Dogs

Benefits of Tapioca Starch for dogs here.

We carefully select ingredients that are safe and healthy for the vast majority of the dog population. But like humans, dogs are individuals and can have certain allergies and adverse reactions to almost any ingredient. We recommend that you introduce any new food or supplement slowly (1/4 to 1/2 dosage for Nuchews) for several days to ensure the health and safety of your dog. 

Tapioca starch is a natural substance that is commonly used as a thickener and binder in dog supplements. It is generally considered safe for dogs, but there are a few precautions to consider when using tapioca starch in dog supplements:

  • Consult with a veterinarian: As with any supplement, it is a good idea to speak with a veterinarian before giving your dog a product containing tapioca starch. They will be able to advise you on the appropriate dosage and frequency of supplementation based on your dog's specific needs and medical history.

  • Check for allergies: Some dogs may be allergic to tapioca, and giving them a supplement containing tapioca starch could cause a reaction. If your dog has a history of allergies or has had a reaction to tapioca in the past, it is important to avoid giving them a supplement containing tapioca starch.

  • Follow the recommended dosage: It is important to follow the recommended dosage instructions on the supplement label. Giving your dog too much tapioca starch can lead to gastrointestinal upset, such as diarrhea and vomiting.

  • Consider the source of the supplement: As with any supplement, it is important to choose a reputable brand of products containing tapioca starch. Look for supplements that are formulated specifically for dogs and made from high-quality ingredients (like ours). Avoid supplements that contain additives or fillers that may be harmful to your dog.

  • Be aware of potential drug interactions: There are no known drug interactions associated with tapioca starch in dogs. However, it is always a good idea to consult with a veterinarian if your dog is taking any medications, as there may be potential interactions with other ingredients in the supplement.
