When it comes to your dog’s diet, you have to be really certain that the food he eats will not do him any harm. And that’s the reason why we shouldn’t let our dogs eat chocolates, onions, avocado, alcoholic drinks, etc. because they have been scientifically proven to harm our furry friend’s health. But although some of our foods aren’t good for our pets, there are still a lot of them that are safe for them to eat:
Surprised? Yes, giving your furry buddy a regular spoonful of peanut butter (unsalted) is actually a great source of protein and healthy fats for him. But just be careful that the peanut butter you are giving your pet doesn’t contain xylitol.
Another human food that you can give your pet is oatmeal. This food is rich in fiber and can help dogs that are suffering from irregular bowel movement; oatmeal is also great for pets with wheat allergies. When serving oatmeal to your dog, make sure it is unsweetened.
Adding a nice piece of salmon on your dog’s diet will not only make him benefit from the fish’s omega 3 fatty acid, but it will also help him have a shinier and glossier coat.
A cooked and unseasoned chicken is actually a good substitute if you run out of dog food; it is also perfect for dogs who need extra protein. When serving chicken to your pets, make sure to cook it properly and not to put black pepper on it; most dogs are allergic to the smell and taste of black pepper.
You can serve pumpkin to your dogs whether it’s canned or raw. A pumpkin is not just a good source of Vitamin A; it can also help pets who are suffering from digestion problems.
