If you’re a dog owner, you’ve probably already wondered whether you could feed your food to your pet. You should be very careful with what you give them, because certain foods can be toxic and even deadly to your furry friend. We made a list of the ten human foods that are actually good and nutritious for your dog:
Don’t worry about giving carrots to your dog. Carrots also have a lot of fiber and vitamin A, while having low calories. Did you know that this vegetable can help to improve your dog’s dental health?
2) Peanut Butter
You might be wondering if it’s safe to give peanut butter to dogs. The answer is yes, and they will love it. Watch out and read the label to see if it doesn’t contain xylitol (which could be deadly to dogs), sugar, or sodium, and should be low in fats. Peanut butter contains vitamin B, vitamin E, protein, healthy fats, and niacin, which can help to strengthen your dog’s immune system, among having many other benefits.
Eating salmon is not only good for your health, but also for your pooch’s. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that boost your dog’s immune system, keep their coat healthy, and reduce inflammation. You should keep in mind though that you should never feed your dog uncooked or cooked seasoned salmon because that can be very harmful to them.
Chicken is also a healthy option to feed your dog. This food provides protein, healthy fatty acids, vitamin B, antioxidants, among other things. Remember, however, that you should give your dog unseasoned chicken, without any bones, since they can be a choking risk.
5) Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are a great, delicious treat idea to give your puppy, as long as they’re unseasoned. They contain a high amount of fiber, vitamin A, manganese, potassium, among other things. Keep in mind that you should never feed them raw potatoes.
6) Green Beans
Green beans are a great option to give your dog if they’re overweight. They will make your dog feel full, but at the same time won’t make them gain more weight.
Rice has a good amount of carbohydrates, niacin, and vitamin B3. A major benefit of rice is improving the digestion, which can relieve the symptoms of an upset stomach in dogs.
Slices of apple are not only safe to feed your dog, but are also nutritious. They contain vitamins A and C, and phytonutrients. Watch out for the seeds, because they are poisonous for you and your dog.
Eating pumpkin has many benefits since they contain various vitamins, fibers, and minerals, which will help to improve their digestion and make them drop some pounds if they’re overweight. They should always be fed to your dog unseasoned and cooked.
Eggs have lots of amino acids, vitamins A and B, good cholesterol, and many other nutrients. Dogs can eat them cooked without seasoning, or even raw with ground eggshells.
