Did you ever just took the food off your plate and shared it with your dog? It can be any vegetable, fruit, chocolate, dairy food or any other food that you love.
Well, I am sure you did. In fact, most of us do that! We love our furry friend and it’s quite obvious we want to share our favorite food with them.
However, do you know not all the foods we share with them are good for them? In fact, some of them are life-threatening, for example, Xylitol.
So, what is the deal? Which ones are safe and which ones are good to be fed?
First thing first, talking about the safe foods that you can feed your dog are fish, egg, rice, cooked shrimp, carrot, apple, blueberries, cucumber, mangoes, turkey, celery, honey, watermelon, pear, pineapple, potatoes, plain yogurt and some other.
Banana, strawberries, orange, broccoli, raspberries, coconut, kiwi, oatmeal, pork, bread, popcorn, corn are also safe for your dog but they should be fed in moderation.
Dairy products like milk, cheese is better to be avoided or at least should be fed very limited. Tomatoes, spinach, mints, cherries, raw chicken bone, bacon fall into the same category.
So, which ones are toxic?
Avocado, grapes, onions, chocolates, ice cream, mushroom, nuts, ham bones, xylitol, fruit pits, alcohol and green tomatoes are very dangerous for your dog’s health.
