    One day my boyfriend and I were at his dad's house sitting outside with a coffee on the floor when we saw our 12 year old Labrador Suzie sneaking a drink :P By the time we'd noticed, she had helped herself to half the cup! I let her have a little bit of tea every now and again as a treat.

    Letting your dogs drink tea and coffee is like letting them eat chocolate.
    Its all got caffein in it. Not good!
    A few drops is fine, but more than 8 ounces(which is not a lot!) can cause huge amounts of toxicity.

    It affects the central nervous system and upsets their digestive system. Some dogs even have seizures and die.

    Do not give your dogs coffee!!

    That's surprising, I didn't realise that the consequences were that bad. I'm very glad our girl only ever had a tiny bit (and that definitely wasn't a regular thing). I definitely won't let her cute looks talk me into giving her the last couple of drops from my tea anymore.

    I have heard that there are blends of tea available that are marketed for dogs, I wonder if these are safe or not?

    Yes my dogs like it however ive never given it to them intentionally and it wasnt "proper" coffee it was a browns iced coffee that they tipped over and drank a bit of, about 100ml. Luckily they were fine!

    I've just seen this thread and am quite shocked by the comments encouraging this. It's an addictive drug that humans use, why on earth would you inflict this upon your dogs? It's not funny or cute so stop giving it to your dog.

    Yes dogs love coffee/tea mostly because of the sugar & milk we add but it can be toxic. I have a mini/toy poodle Milly & she is a coffee cup hound & we are very carful to keep them out of reach. She sucks on tea bags if she dose get them[normally unsuspecting poor visiters are her target] & I she has never gotten sick, I still try & make sure she dose not get them though.

    Any caffine is not good for dogs .
    caffine can cause your dog to sweat more than the norm .
    and as dogs sweat from the inside out un like humans that sweat from the outside and disburst it.
    your dog may suffer ongoing internal lung and breathing problems such as a build up of fluids in the lungs or Pneumonia and we all know how bad that can be in humans.
    IF YOU LOVE YOUR DOG DON'T DO IT WITH CAFFINE !

    Our horses like the odd slurp, and my pony has a thing for beer, mums horse has a more debonair taste, he likes the red wine. They only get it very rarely. Lacey doesn't like coffee at all, she once stood in a cup of the stuff and now she stays away from it.

    red wine is made of grapes be very careful, no offence just sayin.........
    Milly isn't dead yet & she is a bad tea hound but I do try to keep her out of it & maybe grapes is the same but I have been told they are toxic.
