Are Human Foods Safe for Your Dogs?

By BestBullySticks. | Dog Health

As dog parents, we strive to keep our dogs as healthy as possible but sometimes we overlook the basics.

  Are Human Foods Safe for Your Dogs? Just as humans, each dog has a different diet. You should always be aware of your dog's allergies and talk with your vet before adding or subtracting food/treats. Here at Best Bully Sticks, we have created a list of human food that is either safe or unsafe for your pup so that you are never in doubt! We understand that your dog may be the exception to some of these but this article's content is safe for most dogs. If you can think of anything else you would like to add, let us know! Also, if your beloved pup has had any type of reaction to any of these food items and you're not sure why we'd love to hear from you. (In no specific order)

Human Food That Can Be Shared With Your Pup:

  • Lean meat
  • Carrots
  • Pumpkin
  • Green Beans
  • Salmon
  • Tuna
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Oatmeal
  • Broccoli
  • Liver
  • Parsley "“ for fresh breath
  • Peas
  • Seaweed Nori "“ make sure is low sodium
  • Coconut Oil
  • Melons (Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew. Consult veterinarian before feeding more exotic melons)
  • Berries "“ a lot of dogs like them frozen
  • Seedless Apple Slices
  • Bananas
  • Sunflower Seeds (Shelled)

Human Food That CAN NOT Be Shared With Your Pup:

  • Chocolate
  • Grapes/Raisins
  • Onions/Garlic
  • Avocado
  • Alcohol
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Bacon
  • Avocados
  • Peaches & Plums
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Coffee
  • White Bread
  • Salty foods
Dairy and peanut butter are two items that we will neither suggest or denounce. There are several conflicting articles and we'd rather you decide for yourself on these items.

Things to Remember: 

  • Human food like table scraps should never replace your dog's regular food. Table scraps should be regarded as treats instead of a substitute for a naturally balanced diet for your dog.
  • To avoid overfeeding your dog, if you give him human food, you should reduce the amount of his regular food accordingly.
  • All dogs should have a well-balanced and healthy diet, but puppies and pregnant dogs especially need a well-balanced nutritious diet for obvious reasons. Therefore, they should stick to their regular meals and not be fed human foods.
  • Avoid feeding human foods to dogs who are prone to food allergies or whose digestive systems are particularly sensitive.

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Well Done!

Bought the seat cover for a rental SUV we were using on a road trip. It worked great. Kept off all the dog hair and our fur baby rolled around on it like crazy. Am going to move it to our everyday SUV. Nicely done!
