Technically, yes. According to the American Kennel Club, most pups should be able to eat cheese and be okay, but it’s important that you only let your dog eat cream cheese sparingly. For some dogs who are lactose intolerant, any amount of cheese will cause an upset stomach, but many dogs shouldn’t get sick as long as they’re fed it in moderation.

Cream cheese contains some vitamins, but has no overall nutritional value, so you should likely avoid giving your pup this yummy treat altogether. Too much cream cheese could also lead to excessive weight gain or pancreatitis. We recommend contacting your veterinarian if you have other concerns regarding your dog’s diet.
