Hey all! Is it ok to give Cheerios (w/out the milk of course) to a 8 week old Terrier pup? Just curious.

I shouldn't think it would hurt if he likes it. A primary part of dry dog food is cereal. You do mean as a treat ,don't you? Not his primary diet.

How many? As a training treat, Cheerios are great - I put a few handfuls in a Zip-loc container, add a chunk of something stinky (like liverwurst), and store in the fridge. Meat-flavoured Cheerios are a big hit here.

Right, just once in a great while.

I forgot to mention that a little milk is good but very much usually will give any dog diarrhea.

Cheerios will not hurt your pup. I give my daschund cheerios for training treats. They are inexpensive and very handy. Just put some in a container or zip loc bag and there you go. Just dont make them a huge part of your dogs diet.
