In many ways, dogs are just like human beings. This is true when it comes to food. Dogs can be as sensitive as humans with the kind of food they take. It can even be worse for dogs. They might have more allergies than you even it if seems like they can lick anything they see.
This only means that you have to be careful with whatever you put into your dog’s mouth. You don’t want to put your beloved animal at risk just because you are lazy to identify what is allowed and what is not.
Bananas for instance are usually thought of as unhealthy for pets. The truth is that they are perfect. This is true along with rice and carrots. They are totally safe. Not all fruits and vegetables have the same properties though. Some are deemed really bad for pets.
Walnuts and grapes are the best examples. They are seemingly innocent fruits and are really tasty. For dogs, they are poison. They might keep vomiting upon eating these fruits. If you are a huge fan of chocolates, your dog definitely should not. You have to make sure that you stay away from your dog when eating chocolates.
This only means that you have to double check whatever it is that goes into your pet’s mouth. You want to understand first the properties of these foods so you won’t have to keep seeing the vet.
To make it easier for you, we have compiled an infographic below. This categorizes foods depending on their safety as food for pets. The ones on top are considered totally safe. The ones on the bottom are to be avoided. Hopefully, this helps you in taking care of your pet.
