Which Table Scraps are OK To Feed Your Dog

dog-tableBefore we start, you should know what you should NEVER feed to your dog. These items are:

  • Onions
  • garlic
  • raisins or grapes
  • caffeine
  • chocolate
  • Raw meat
  • sugary foods
  • spicy foods
  • candy
  • lunch meat
  • cheese
    These items may not have any external affects on your dog initially, but they really make a mess out of their insides. Their liver is affected and could be damaged. Also, avoid salty foods

Here are some food that’s OK to feed to your dog.

  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • nuts
  • fresh turkey or chicken (without the skin)
    Sometimes your vet will even recommend these items in place of traditional dog treats.

Always limit the amount of table food that you give to your dog. The more table scraps that you give him, the more likely that he will become a picky eater and may no longer want his dog food. I would recommend not giving table scraps at all. You may give him some fruits, veggies or nuts once in awhile in place of his treats.
