Can Dogs Eat Human Food?
I’m sure you’re guilty. Okay, I am too, of giving the family dog treats under the dinner table. And we give him our left-overs, maybe share a cookie or two. After all, he’s looking at you with those big brown eyes and you want to make him happy. But is it okay? Can dogs eat human food without consequences?

The junk food that’s not good for us, is not good for your pooch either. But you should know that.
Perhaps you think foods that are good for us must be okay for your pet. But did you know that even fruits and vegetables can wreak havoc on a dog’s body, causing severe health problems?
Sure, it’s fun to share, and it can save you money on dog food or whatever. However, some people-food can be downright dangerous to your dog or any other pet you have.
Can My Dog Eat This? What Not To Feed Your Dog
Food meant for humans can cause a lot of problems for our pets, such as a sore tummy, diarrhea, and/or vomiting, gastrointestinal disorders, and even death, if the munchies they’ve ingested are toxic to them.

My husky get’s wild for eating spaghetti when he sees it. Barks over dramatically, don’t want milk and so much more…
I had a dog that used to love spaghetti too. Thanks for stopping by, Akib. I hope you’ll come visit us again. 🙂
full of information here, Jeanne
I always like to share what I ate with my Rottie, now I have to be picky about it .. thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks for your input, Jay. I’m guilty of sharing my munchies with my dogs as well. Oops. 🙂
