We try to keep our dogs on their canine diets but sometimes we just cant resist slipping them an occasional human morsel. If youd like to reward your pet with a table scrap, make sure that you choose people foods that are safe for canine tummies.
Here are a few dog-approved people foods:Related:Harmful foods for dogs
1. Peanut butter.A favorite treat of many canines. Not only is it a good source of protein, but it also contains heart healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E. Stuff peanut butter into a Kong to keep your dog busy for hours. Choose raw, unsalted peanut butter. NOTE: Be absolutely sure that youre not using sugar-free or lite peanut butter that has artificial sweeteners, particularly xylitol, as these substances are incredibly toxic to dogs.
2. Cooked chicken.Can be slipped into the bowl along with your dogs regular food to add a spice and extra protein to its diet. This also makes a good meal replacement if youre in a pinch and out of dog food.
3. Cheese.A great treat for a dog as long as she isnt lactose intolerant, which a small percentage are. Make sure to monitor your dogs reaction. Opt for low or reduced fat varieties and dont overfeed, as many cheeses can be high in fat. Cottage cheese is typically a good choice.
4. Baby carrots.Good for a dogs teeth, carrots are low calorie and high in fiber and beta carotene/vitamin A.
5. Yogurt.High in calcium and protein. But make sure to only choose yogurts that do not contain artificial sweeteners or added sugars. Yogurts with active bacteria can act as a probiotic and are good for your dogs digestive system.
6. Salmon.A good source of omega 3 fatty acids, which are responsible for keeping your dogs coat healthy and shiny, as well as supporting your dogs immune system. Feed your dog cooked salmon, add salmon oil to her food bowl, or slip him some of your unwanted fish skins.
7. Pumpkin.Good source of fiber as well as beta-carotene/vitamin A. It can help keep the GI tract moving and can aid with digestive issues.
8. Eggs.Scrambling up an egg for your pup is a great way to give her diet a protein boost. Eggs are also a source of easily digestible riboflavin and selenium, making them a healthy snack.
9. Green beans.Make a great treat for your dog since they are filling and low in calories. Select beans that have no added salt.
10. Apple slices.Help to clean residue off a dogs teeth, which helps to freshen her breath. Apples are a good source of fiber as well as vitamin A and C. Make sure to take out the seeds and the core before feeding to your dog, as these can be choking hazards.
11. Oatmeal.A great source of soluble fiber, which can be especially beneficial to senior dogs with bowel irregularity issues. It is also a great alternate grain for dogs allergic to wheat. Make sure to cook oatmeal before serving it to your dog. Do not add any sugar or flavor additives.
These are just a few of the human foods that you can toss your dogs way. Remember to try them in small amounts. If your dog experiences any sort of reaction, immediately consult a veterinarian. Before giving your dog any people food, do your research to make sure its safe. Never feed your dog toxic human items such as: chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins, yeast dough, artificial sweeteners, macadamia nuts, avocadoes, alcohol, or coffee. Consult your veterinarian with any questions on what is safe and what is harmful.
