69 Human Foods You Can Feed Your Dog

Do you worry when your dog eats human food and you don’t know if it’s okay or if you should rush him to the vet’s office as soon as possible? This is a situation that happens to every dog owner at least once in their lifetime. Do you know what human foods you can feed your dog?

It’s easy for us to forget that dogs don’t have the same digestive system as us humans, and thus, cannot handle the same kind of food. For example, chocolate is a sweet treat for us, but it is poison for dogs, and yet, your best friend will still try to get some of it, because dogs don’t know better.

And since dogs don’t know better, the responsibility of keeping them alive and healthy comes down to us, the dog owners. If we have no knowledge about what kind of human foods you can feed your dog and what kind of food should be hidden away from him, then we can’t properly take care of our best friend, and that’s a shame.

So, are you asking yourself if feeding your dog half a banana could kill him? Do you often wonder if a handful of peanuts would be a good treat for your best friend? Then, you’re in the right place. We have an infographic for you that summarizes everything you need to know about human foods and dogs; from the foods that are great for them to the ones that can potentially kill them.

  1. Hi great post and info graphic. Some of the foods on the list I had no idea about. I am really interested in animal nutrition, specifically for dogs and cats.
    Just like humans we need to check what we are feeding our pets and natural food is always best or as close as can get to nature. I am always telling people to check ingredients in manufactured pet food, as much of it is full of junk and of no nutritional benefit to your dog or cat.

    • Hi, Petier. You’re so right that manufactured pet food is full of junk, and the same goes for human food. It’s sad, I think. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Peace

  2. My husband makes homemade dog food with chicken livers and veggies. It’s interesting that your list says not to feed turkey and my vet says to give ground turkey when my dogs have an upset stomach. There’s a lot to learn about dog nutrition and I’ve only scratched the surface.

    • Hi, Sandy. Don’t you hate that when one organization says yes and another says no? Coffee’s good; coffee is bad. Eggs — good and bad. On and on and on. I guess things might just be a matter of opinion. As long as turkey agrees with your dog, then why take it away, right? Thanks so much for taking the time to read our post. Peace.

    • It’s so confusing when opinions differ, isn’t it? I would go with what the vet says if you trust him or her. And you’re right about there being a lot to learn about nutrition. Phew! It’s overwhelming. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a message. Take care.
