Is normal tea OK to give to dogs occasionally? When I was kid, my friend used to give her dog a drink of tea every day and the dog loved it. I'd forgotten all about it, then yesterday Misha tried to shake a paw while I had a cup of tea in my hand and it went down my leg and my blanket. She wouldn't stop licking the patch where it was, she couldn't get enough. I'll happily give her a little of mine sometimes, but I don't want to poison her in ignorance. If I hadn't joined Chaz I wouldn't have known about chocolate, grapes etc.....so I'm just being cautious.
