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.

Homemade Dog Food Gravy

I only feed our dogs dry dog food and have always checked to make sure what I feed them is a top quality, balanced dog food. Our dogs do great on it. When I adopted my Grandmothers dog I had every intention of feeding her the same, but everyday she would hardly eat any of it (because my grandmother would feed her what she ate and never bought dog food). She lost a lot of weight, which at first was good, but when it didnt stop and she was becoming underweight I became concerned. At that point I bought some canned food and would mix a little bit with some water to coat her dry food. It worked, she began eating the proper amount of food. I began making gravy, just like the kind you can buy, for the conveince of how well it mixed with dry food and for how much less it costs than buying dog gravy. This homemade recipe is best for dogs because it utilizes a balanced, pre-made dog food. Be sure not to give your dogs anything with onions, garlic or salt in them, these can be toxic to dogs. Many homemade dog food recipes out there include onions, garlic or salty broths in them. Always check with your vet if you are concerned with anything in your dogs diet.

Just made it. Let my rotti lick the pot and she loved it. Do you refrigerate the gravy?

(13 ounce) can dog food (ground, not chunks in gravy)

ounceswater(use the dog food can to measure)

tablespoonwater(to mix with the cornstarch)

In a sauce pan combine the can of dog food and 10 oz of water. Begin to heat the mixture.

In a bowl combine the tablespoon of water and tablespoon of cornstarch until smooth and stir it into the dog food mixture.

Bring the ingredients to a boil stirring constantly. Boil until thickened (about 1 minute) continuing to stir.

Allow mixture to cool at room temperature for about 10 – 15 minutes. Once cooled pour into a blender and blend until there are no more chunks. If the mixture is too thick, add more water one tablespoon at a time. The mixture can then be stored in a hot sauce or ketchup bottle. Follow the storage and best used by date on the can of dog food used, most should be refrigerated.

Use about 1 tablespoon of gravy for every 1/2 to whole cup of dry dog food.

Homemade Dog Food

I have made dog food ever since my dogs were puppies – 4 years now! They are very healthy and have never had any problems. You can also add it to their kibble. They love it! My dogs are large breed so they get 2 cups in the a.m. and p.m.

Original recipe yields 5 servings (10 cups)

Note: Recipe directions are for original size.

1/2 (16 ounce) package frozen broccoli, carrots and cauliflower combination

Place the water, ground turkey, rice, and rosemary into a large Dutch oven. Stir until the ground turkey is broken up and evenly distributed throughout the mixture; bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the frozen vegetables, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Refrigerate until using.
