A dog desperate to eat
Do you know what will definitely make your furry friend playful and active? Delicious food and yummy treats! However, your canine friend has a different digestive system than you, which means that some human foods that are safe for people can be toxic or even quite dangerous for dogs.
Nevertheless, many human foods are also safe for your dogs and can provide vital nutrients and health benefits. But you should only give them these food items in moderation.
Here is the list of human-edible foods that you can give to your dog without any fear.
Pumpkin is one of the human foods that most dogs like to eat. The best part is, you can use pumpkins to make your own dog treats. Consider using either canned or fresh pumpkin puree to whip up a tasty doggy snack that is, again, possibly cheaper than what you would purchase in the store.
Also, pumpkin is great to mix into dry dog food if they get bored with their food or have diarrhea and aren’t feeling well. Pumpkin is usually easy on a dog’s stomach, plus it contains plenty of fibre and vitamins to help them feel active and playful.
#2: White Rice
White rice is another exciting treat of human food that dogs like. Just like pumpkin, white rice is an incredible thing to feed your dog when they have an upset stomach. It’s mild and bland, which means it’s easy on their digestive system.
#3: Peanut Butter
When it comes to human foods that dogs love, peanut butter wins the show. Peanut butter is an exciting treat to use and can be used to even trick your dog into taking medicines that they refuse to consume otherwise. Plus, if you want to spoil your pup, you can even make your own peanut butter cookies for your dog.
Eggs are another example of the most enjoyable human foods for your dog. It is also an easy way to include additional protein into your dog’s diet. Be sure to cook the eggs thoroughly, as raw egg whites may make your furry friend sick.
#5: Dairy Products
Dairy products, such as cheese, milk, and plain yogurt, are safe for dogs to have in small quantities. However, most dogs loveto eat cheese.
While cheese is an excellent treat for dogs, you must be careful not to overfeed them with this human food, as most types of cheese have a high-fat content. Also, keep in mind that some dogs are lactose intolerant, so if you are just considering or starting to give cheese to your canine companion, do it in minimal amounts and monitor for any possible reactions.
Unquestionably, there are also many foods that you shouldn’t feed your pet because they are toxic and/or difficult for your dog to consume and digest. These include edible items such as onions, chocolate, and grapes or raisins. Before you share your favorite food with your dog, it’s usually best to conduct some research or check with your veterinarian first.
