One of the questions dog owners’ ask on their visit to the vet is the best food to feed a dog. Should you consider feeding your dog what they call as “human food”? All living creatures deserve real food. Humans and dogs can share several common foods to maintain good health in general. Below are some “human foods” which can give your dog a nutritional boost!
Yogurt is a good treat for dogs, especially for those who suffer from digestion problems. It is best to choose plain yogurt, one that does not contain added sugar or artificial sweeteners. Yogurt contains a number of nutrients including calcium and protein.
Salmon is a fatty fish which is a good source of omega- 3 fatty acids. These fats can do wonders for the skin and also give dogs a healthier and shinier coat.
Pumpkin is a good source of fiber and beta carotene. It helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.
Eggs are healthy treat for dogs because of its high protein content. You just have to make sure that you’re giving them cooked whole eggs to avoid contamination from bacteria such as salmonella which can make your dog sick.
Green beans are good source of iron and vitamins. They are also low in calories that can help dogs maintain a healthy weight.
Carrots are great dog snack! Crunching on carrots can be good for dogs' teeth. They are loaded with carotenoids, fiber, vitamin C and K (needed for blood clotting), as well as potassium. They have magnesium, manganese, most of the B vitamins and phosphorus, which is required for energy production, among other things.
Introduce these foods gradually, always keep in mind that every dog is different. If your dog has any dietary or health concerns, please check with your veterinarian.
