Can Dogs Eat Human Food?
A List of Foods Rated Low-to-High Risk
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?

It goes without saying that the junk food that’s not good for us, is definitely 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.
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.
