It’s difficult to refuse your dog anything at all, to be honest. But somethings are obviously not good for them and must be taken away even if they make the cutest face that could melt a stone heart.
You may have wondered what human foods your dog can actually eat. The best practice is to get allergies checked by your vet and confirm whether there are any foods your dog might not be able to swallow.
However, if you’re only wondering what kinds of foods dogs can generally eat, this infographic is a good rule of thumb to follow.
Just to clarify, just because you feed your dog a few scraps here and there doesn’t mean they should be kept on a human diet, because none of those foods will be able to nourish them completely. It’s best to stick with dog food and only feed them human food once in a while.
Because dogs cannot process fats and sugars in the same way as humans, they need to be monitored, and their diet needs to be restricted. If you are trying out a new food for your dog, even if it’s supposedly okay for them to have it, practice caution and only provide a small portion of the time around.
As long as you’re cautious and take care of your little cutie, there’s no reason they can’t have a few bits off of your plate every once in a while.
