Hello one of my dogs (Sunshine) absolutely loves maple syrup! I feed him about a bottle of Aunt Jemima per day (sometimes I splurge for the expesive stuff too!).
   
So what's the problem you ask? Well Sunshine (or Sunny as we call him) gets very hyper and pants a lot. Also, I have noticed irregular urination eg. Sunny goes a lot, sometimes in the house etc.
   
Any thoughts or advice are much appreciated!

umm hmmm stop giving him so much maple syrup? because im pretty darn sure dogs weren't created to eat maple syrup out of trees in the wild (i guess it could happen)
   
with frequent urination in the house, his diet could have offset the chemical balance in his urine causing crystals to form, if it continues WITHOUT the maple syrup i would definately take him to the vet and get it checked out, it could save a lot of stains!
   
not to mention the teeth! pricey pricey to get those fixed up

But wait a minute, we humans can eat pretty much anything, so why not our dogs? AFterall, street dogs eat garbage, I'm not feeding Sunshine garbage. But I thank you for your quick response and appreciate your concern.
   
I think what I might try is cut the syrup with water and/or buy real maple syrup. I think it's the corn starch in the Aunt Jemima that's making Sunny crazy.
   
I just don't have the heart to take his syrup away! He loves it so much.
