Pamper Your Pup
Canines love to eat anything and everything, but there are poisonous foods that are dangerous for dog consumption such as grapes, onions, garlic, chocolate, avocados, alcohol, peaches, meat scraps, and caffeine. However, you can reward your dogs with safe and healthy human snacks found in your kitchen. Trust us, they'll adore these 10 tasty chews.
Peanut butter is a popular snack to give to pups, but be sure to stick to natural or homemade peanut butter. A study published in the Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that xylitol, a sugar substitute found in many store-bought nut butters, is toxic when ingested by dogs. Spread a dollop of raw, unsalted peanut butter on a milk bone, or just let your furry friend lick the spoon after making a PB&J sandwich.
Your dog will adore scrambled eggs without added butter, salt, or pepper. It’s rumored that cooked eggs can even help make their coats shiny. Play it safe by purchasing eggs from a local farmer raising organic, free-range chicken.
Switch up snacktime by substituting biscuits for raw green beans straight out of the fridge. Grinding this fresh alternative and adding it to dog food is also a healthy way to keep your pet feeling full longer, while maintaining a balanced weight. Avoid store-bought cans with salt, because they're packed with sodium. Go all-natural, local, and green!
A wedge every other day will keep the vet away! Sweet and crispy, your pet will love the juiciness of an apple. Be sure to remove all seeds and the core.
No salt or butter here! Air pop some kernels, settle on the sofa, and share a movie night with your pooch. Cooking Light staff favorites include "Beethoven," "101 Dalmations," "Lady and The Tramp," "Up!" and "Air Bud."
Queasy pup? Care for your dog's upset stomach with a bowl of plain white rice, which is easily disgestible. Oatmeal is an another option that can help treat queasiness and regulate bowel movements.
