(and the 13 you NEED to avoid!)
For those of us with dogs, we're always looking at ways to reward and pamper our pets. As we've all probably learned the hard way, though, we have to be careful with how we do so - as not all foods are good for dogs.
Fortunately, we're here to offer a guide. Let's start with the healthiest foods to use when treating your dog - and then we'll look at a few you need to be careful to avoid.
First, the healthy treats:
Carob (in small amounts)
Cheese & cottage cheese (provided your dog isn't lactose intolerant)
Cinnamon (in moderation)
Coconut & coconut oil
Flax seed (milled or oil)
Greek Yogurt & kefir
Liver (in moderation)
Peanut butter (But only if it's a quality brand, as cheaper or mass produced brands can contain ingredients harmful to your dogs)
Pears (minus seeds!)
Pumpkin, squash, & zucchini
Salmon & tuna
Spirulina (in small amounts)
Lastly, be sure to avoid the following items, which are toxic to many dogs: alcohol, artificial sweeteners, avocados, chocolate, coffee, grapes, macadamia nuts, onions, raisins, yeast dough.
