Human food for dogs



Here I will list some safe human food for dogs. Please keep in mind that variety is the spice of life with dogs just as much as it is with pet parents. Eating the same food or too much of certain foods is not good for you and therefore it’s not good for your dog, try to rotate some of these foods.

This is a great way to get started making your own dog food as you can pick some human food for dogs from the list and make your own recipes. Remember that if you are feeding a raw diet for dogs try to avoid processed meats as these contain more potential for introducing unsafe bacteria into your dogs system. I recommend removing many bones and never giving your dog cooked or old bones. Visit my Best dog bones Page and learn about what types of bones are recommended for your canine. Also avoid dangerous food for dogs and keep your dog from getting sick.

Anyone who is not incorporating a high quality dog food with vitamins and minerals may consider a daily multivitamin I recommend Healthy Select Adult Dog Vitamins this is a good multivitamin and easily found at your local pet food store.

Meat - Chicken, Beef, Turkey, Lamb, Pork, Cooked Fish, Organs, Spleen, Liver, Tongue, Cheek, Heart, Wild Game, Deer (Venison), Duck, Goose, Quail, Dove, Pheasant, Bison, Bear, Moose, Antelope, Sheep, Elk, Caribou, Wild Boar, Rabbit, Squirrel, Snake.

In the wild, animals instinctively seek out plants that will help to support health in various body systems. It therefore makes sense that as owners, we can help our domestic pets by making herbal and other natural supplements available to them.
