Healthy snacks!

2 May

Ok, so we all know that there is a lot of “human” foods out there that are bad for our dogs, but there are also a lot of yummy and healthy snacks we can give our dogs.

My dog’s favorite “human” snack are probably carrot!

Here i will just give a real short list of good and bad snacks you could give your dog (there are so many out there!).

The good:
– Carrots
– Spinach
– Lettuce
– Potato (particularly sweet potato) – of course this needs to be unseasoned and unbuttered
– squash, zucchini
-Green beans
-Pumpkin
-Banana (frozen is good)
-Apple
-Watermelon (no seeds)
– Strawberries
-Blueberries
-Popcorn
-Yogurt
– Flax seed or Olive oil
– Salmon
– Eggs
-Oatmeal

The Bad:
-Nuts (particularly macadamia nuts, which are toxic to pets)
– Tomato
-Avocado
-Mushroom
-Grapes and Raisins
-Onion and Garlic
-Fruits with pits (cherries, peaches, plums)

Then your obvious things such as chocolate, sweets, fatty foods etc

As with any treats, you need to remember that they are treats, so be cautious of how much you are feeding your dog.

      aww Maya loves Banana as well. If we are out walking and there is a banana skin anywhere nearby (within say 100 yards) she will find it! Max doesn’t really understand these things yet haha
