Is Liquorice toxic to dogs

Is Liquorice toxic to dogs
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Now we do need to be careful with sweets containing liquorice extract. In large volumes, it can cause electrolyte imbalances, muscle weakness, and abnormal heart rhythms. That said, one sweet isn't likely to cause Jess any harm (provided its not a xylitol containing sugar-free sweet) and therefore we'd only need to monitor her and perhaps give her a light diet (ie rice with boiled chicken or white fish) should this give her any stomach upset.
Please take care,
Dr. B.
