MORE Human Foods Good for Dogs!

Green Peas - Peas are excellent for dogs, as they have tons of A and B vitamins, as well as zinc, iron, and potassium. They’re also surprisingly high in protein, although dogs don’t process plant protein as well as animal protein.

Celery -is often recommended as a weight-loss treat. Celery is very low in fat and cholesterol and is an excellent source of fibre, vitamins A, C, and K, folate, potassium, and manganese.

Cooked Potatoes - Don’t ever feed your dog raw or green potatoes, as those can kill them. Cooked potatoes, on the other hand, have plenty of vitamins C and B6, as well as iron. You should remove the skins before serving, though.

Corn - Corn gets a bad rap because it’s used as a cheap filler in many commercial dog foods. As an occasional additive to a healthy kibble, though, corn can give your dog protein, linoleic acid, and fibre. Just feed it sparingly.

Oatmeal - Oatmeal is gentle on a dog’s stomach, making it a good option for a dog with tummy troubles. It’s also a good substitute for wheat in gluten-intolerant pups. Plus, it’s delicious!

Oranges - Many dogs like the taste of oranges, but that’s because they’re high in sugar. As a result, you should limit the amount that you feed your pup. Still, they have vitamins and minerals (especially vitamin C) and are low in calories, so they make great treats for overweight dogs.

Coconut - Coconut and coconut oil have received a great deal of press in recent years for being fantastic for everything from fighting aging to benefiting skin and fur. Many of those health claims haven’t been proven yet, but coconut meat and oil are both safe for dogs. Don’t give them more than a tiny bit, though, as it’s incredibly high in fat.

Peaches - Peaches are jam-packed with vitamin A, making them great for skin and coat health. They also contain a fair amount of fibre — and a great deal of sugar, so serve them sparingly. Don’t let your dog get a hold of the pit, either, as it can cause a life-threatening intestinal blockage.

Goat Milk - Goat’s milk has all the vitamins, minerals, and other good stuff that cow’s milk does, but it’s much easier for dogs to digest. You should still only serve it in moderation, but it’s a better choice for pups than traditional moo juice.

Carrots - Carrots are a healthful food for dogs. Chewing on carrots can help remove plaque from their teeth and otherwise promote good dental health.

Carrots are also a good source of vitamin A, which is beneficial for a dog’s immune system, skin, and coat.

Seafood - Salmon, shrimp, and tuna are all safe for dogs to eat and good sources of protein.

Salmon and tuna are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help keep a dog’s immune system, coat, and skin healthy.

The B vitamins in shrimp can also help maintain a dog’s digestive system and promote healthy blood circulation.

It is important to cook fish before feeding it to a dog, as uncooked fish can contain harmful parasites.

Watermelon - Watermelon is safe for dogs to eat, but it is important to remove all the seeds first, as these can block the intestines.

Chewing on the rind can also cause an upset stomach, so remove this too before giving the watermelon to a dog.

Watermelon has a high-water content, so it can help keep dogs hydrated. It is also a good source of vitamins A, C, and B-6.
