No matter how hard we try to maintain our dog’s diet but at times we just can’t resist rewarding them with a treat. If you’d like to reward your pet with a table scrap, make sure you choose food that is safe for canine tummies. Here’s a list of foods you can give to your pets without hesitation.
Peanut butter is a favorite treat of many canines. Not only is it a good source of protein, but it also contains heart-healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E. You can keep your dog busy for hours by stuffing some peanut butter into their Kong.
Cooked chicken can be slipped into the bowl along with your dog’s regular food to add a spice and extra protein to its diet. This also makes a good meal replacement if you’re out of dog food.
A great treat for a dog as long as she isn’t lactose intolerant, which a few are. Make sure to monitor your dog’s reaction. Opt for low or reduced fat varieties and don’t overfeed as many kinds of cheese can be high in fat.
Good for a dog’s teeth, carrots are low calorie and high in fiber and beta-carotene/vitamin A.
Yogurts are high in calcium and protein. You should always check the ingredients used in a yogurt. Please don’t serve your pet with yogurt that contains artificial sweeteners or sugar. Yogurts with active bacteria can act as a probiotic and are good for your dog’s digestive system.
By feeding him salmon you can give your pet a regular dose of omega 3 fatty acids that will help you keep your dog’s coat healthy and shiny. It will also help in boosting their immune system.
Pumpkin is a good source of fiber as well as beta-carotene/vitamin A. It can help your dog aid with digestive issues and will also ensure that his GI tract functions properly.
You can give your pup a protein boost by scrambling up some eggs for a meal. Eggs are also a source of easily digestible riboflavin and selenium, making it a healthy snack.
There are not many human foods that you can feed your dog with. Remember to try them in small amounts. If your dog experiences any sort of reaction, immediately consult a veterinarian.
