Most healthy foods that are good for us are relatively good for dogs. However, it’s important to research what you can feed your pup before you do it. If you can’t say no to that adorable face staring up at you from the floor as you eat, check out these list.
Peanut butter. This is a great source of added protein and fiber for your pup and a tablespoon on their dry food is a surefire way to get them to eat it! Make sure to choose an all-natural peanut butter that does not contain the ingredient xylitol as it can be dangerous for pets.
Yogurth. Previously we wrote about milk, which is not good for dogs due to high kontent of lactose.
Hovewer jogurt, as a processed milk product, provides a great source of protein for dogs (especially Greek yogurt). Make sure to avoid the brands high in sugar, xylitol and preservatives.
Chicken, turkey and beef. Most of these meats are found in your pet’s dry and wet foods anyway and are filled with healthy fats and proteins dogs need to maintain a healthy weight and energy level. Just be sure to feed them lean proteins that have not been cooked with strange vegetables, oils or wines.
Salmon. The omega-3 fatty acids are good for your dog’s coat and skin health, and provide him with a healthy source of protein. Watch out for the Fish bones!
Pumpkin and sweet potatoes. Are a great source of beta carotene and vitamin A and help keep your pup’s digestive system on track.
Rice and pasta. Are good source of energy for your dog. Just avoid feeding them fatty or acidic sauces.
Apples. Great healthy snack and a great sources of vitamins A and C!
Peas and green beans. Are a great way to infuse your pup’s food with healthy, low-calorie nutrients. Peas provide extra potassium and the green beans are great sources of vitamins C and K.
Of course, these aren’t the only human foods dogs can stomach, just the healthiest for them. Just be sure to look it up before you toss it to your pet!
