When your adorable pup is begging at the dinner table, it’s tough not to cave and slip him the teeniest, tiniest bite of rib eye. C’mon…just look at that face!
But guess what? If it’s OK with your vet, it’s totally fine to feed Fido a few bites of people food occasionally--just make sure you’re giving him healthy snacks that won’t leave him feeling sick as a dog (sorry) afterward.
Fine in small amounts: A spoonful of peanut butter, a cube of cheese, pumpkin, baby carrots, salmon, white boneless chicken or turkey breast, lean boneless red meat, apple slices, green beans, scrambled eggs, sweet potatoes, cucumber slices, zucchini slices, white rice and white pasta.
Absolutely not: Chocolate, onions, garlic, grapes, candy, ice cream, peaches, plums, raw meat, salt, raisins, macadamia nuts, avocados, or chicken or turkey with bones.
OK, now go have a Lady and the Tramp-style pasta moment with your dog. You know you want to.
