It’s tempting to give your pets “people food”. They are, of course, part of the family, so why shouldn’t they be included in meal times? But not all people food is safe for dogs. Be sure you know the difference before you offer your dog something from your plate.
Safe Foods: Lean meats; raw bones like turkey necks; slices of apple, oranges, bananas, and watermelon; carrots, green beans, cucumber, zucchini, pumpkin, sweet potatoes; cooked oatmeal, white rice and more.
Unsafe Foods: Chocolate; grapes & raisins;
caffeine; mushrooms; macadamia nuts; candy and gum; sugar; Xylitol (sweetener);
ALL cooked bones; corn cobs; sugary foods (pies); bread, yeast dough; large
amounts of avocado and more.
