10 Human Foods to Share With Your Dog

10 Human Foods to Share With Your Dog
10 people foods you can give your dog


1. Herring. Cooked herring is a wonderful source of essential fatty acids (EFA). EFAs can be beneficial in skin and coat condition and they are thought to be beneficial for arthritic pets.

2. Squash. Cooked or raw, spaghetti squash is a fun vegetable that is very high in beta carotene, which is beneficial for eyesight.

3. Pasta. Plain, cooked noodles like penne or tortellini make a great treat. Cook a bit extra next time you’re making pasta for yourself and freeze it. Your dog will probably love it straight from the freezer. If your dog does not have a wheat allergy, pasta can be a great special treat.

4. Peppermint. Peppermint extract or plant leaves can be included in dog cookies. It is a strong-smelling herb so a little bit can go a long way. Peppermint has long been thought to be beneficial in treating stomach problems.

5. Chicken broth. Low-sodium, home-made chicken broth can be a great treat to add to your dog’s regular meal, or can be mixed with kibble and frozen in a Kong to provide a long-lasting treat.

6. Cinnamon. Initial studies have indicated that cinnamon may have anti-cancer and
anti-bacterial benefits. Cinnamon can be included in dog cookies.

7. Pomegranate. High in antioxidants and vitamin C, pomegranate can be fed as a juice or as the whole fruit.

8. Cheese. A favourite of most dogs, cheese is an excellent source of calcium and protein.

9. Tuna. Next time you make a tuna sandwich, save a little for your dog, add the water (not oil) to his regular meal, or add the tuna juice to your next batch of dog cookies and make tuna snaps.

10. Barley grass. Barley grass is high in antioxidants and can be a treat for dogs when
lawns are covered by snow. Barley grass is marketed as “cat grass” in many pet stores.

why low sodium soup? Is sodium really bad for dogs? I heard they have a higher need for sodium than people, and it increases their water intake which keeps their kidneys healthy.

Also, don't give your dog commercially made broths. They contain ONIONS which are FATALLY TOXIC to dogs, even in small amounts.

allegory after those people with the loads of problems. The biography tells that the job-holders do not hold to decrease behind in applying with a view the fund because they have the unmixed http://pay-day-uk-today-loans.co.uk banks and past due payment fees. A bounced tab fee of $40 from a $100 examine = 1040% APR.

you can add animal crackers/cookies to the list (the plain ones, not the frosted), HOWEVER, I DO NOT recommend giving your dog(s) more than 1 or 2 per day...the calories add up FAST!

You say it's OK to feed dogs pomegranate, yet in doing a search today pretty much all other sites say it causes all sorts of G.I. tract problems, and one even went as far as to suggest nerve issues.

What's your basis for saying it's OK for dogs?

Pasta should not be on this list. Dogs cannot process grain. its highly recommended that dogs are put on a grain-free diet.

It should be added to the Pomegranate section that too much can make your dog ill so feed it SMALL amounts. I don't know why this list recommends the whole fruit.
