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.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.

New truck seat cover and side panels

I really do like the seat cover and door side panels. The side panels are a must as the Beagle mix puts her feet on the doors. Every now and again someone comes up with a nice product that works well, has quality in its materials, and is well engineered. These are those. I am super satisfied.

Great fit, Great look, Stays in Place

I really like the look of this cover on my front bucket seat. You can't tell it's to protect the seat from the dog! It's very nice looking and fits great. Most importantly, it stays in place! My dog is wiggly, up and down, looking out the windows; and this seat cover doesn't mind. Do make sure you watch the video and carefully follow the installation instructions. I did not at first; and Support was Wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing incorrectly.
