Table Scraps for Dogs, Are Any of Them Good?

Tuesday, August 3, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

Before 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.

You should always feed your dog a high quality dog food. 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 dog treats and you could throw in some dog toys to keep him in good shape.

Remember, your pets count!
