I don’t know about you, but I love being able to whip up a snack for the human children, and pass some on to my dogs (who happen to be giving me the big blue puppy eyes every time.)
What human foods are safe for my dog?
- Sweet Potatoes
- Peanut Butter
My dogs love munching on carrots. And did you know that these paw-some orange veggies are not only healthy, but have great benefits to your dogs teeth as well?
These make great treats for our dogs
. My favorite thing to do is cut them into thin slices, pop them in the oven at a low setting, and make homemade dehydrated sweet potato treats.
Peanut Butter – Yogurt:
I wanted to tie these two together because I will often make some frozen treats for my dogs in the summer. Simply purchase some plain, no fat yogurt, add a couple tablespoons of peanut butter, mix it all up, pour the mixture into an ice cube mold, freeze and voila!
You might be surprised at how many benefits pure pumpkin has to offer a dog. Pumpkin is great for dogs who have constipation issues, as well as dogs who have soft bowel movements. Loaded with fiber, pumpkin can have a huge impact on the health of your dog.
There are a few different options when feeding eggs to a dog. Most people either crack a raw egg or two over top of dog food, or feed the entire egg (shell and all) to their dogs. Whereas some simply scramble up a batch of eggs. Either way you choose, eggs are a great choice for a healthy snack.
Any explanation needed? I think not.
Does your dog seem to have an upset stomach? Try boiling up some chicken (no seasoning) and putting in on top of a bed of white rice for your dog!
Aside from the obvious benefits of apple, this fruit also works well to help clean your dog's teeth. Simply cut into slices, and let them enjoy!
