A new trend on TikTok has pet owners dousing pieces of chicken in hot sauce and feeding them to their dogs to get their reaction. Meant to be funny, the trend is sadly gaining traction, and it’s anything but amusing.
Aside from being cruel to an animal that trusts you not to harm them, vets are warning that it could also be life-threatening. The hot sauce could potentially cause inflammation in the pancreas, resulting in a condition called pancreatitis that can be fatal if not treated immediately.
In addition, feeding your dog hot sauce could also give them an upset stomach and digestive discomfort. (Insider)
