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.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

George Linhardt

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
