The digestive system of the dogs is entirely different than humans, and hence certain foods which are favorable for the human can be toxic and fatal to dogs. Therefore as a responsible dog owner, one has to strictly take care of the eating habits of their lovely canine mates.
Still, the dogs can enjoy some of the human foods as certain human foods can be useful for the dog’s appetite.
Some human foods can bring some best benefits to the healthy nature of the dogs. Carrot is one of such foods. The carrot is one of the healthy foods which the owners can add in their dog’s meal. The chewing of carrots can result in the removal of the plaque and hence can promote good oral health in the canine companion. The vitamin A from the carrot can be the best source for increasing the immunity of the dog and can also promote healthy skin and coat of the dog. We all know that too much of anything is good for nothing, and hence too much vitamin A consumption is toxic for the pet.
The apples can bring vitamin C and vitamin A which is good for the overall health of the dog. The dog can also gain some valuable fiber from the apple. The owners have to check the rotting issues of the apple before feeding them to the pets. Rotting apples can lead to alcohol poisoning in pets.
Cooked white rice can be useful for the dog’s digestive system as it is easy to bind for the dog’s stomach. The owners can check with their veterinarians for diabetic issues. If the dog has diabetic issues, then white rice can be excluded from their meal.
Dairy products like cheese, milk, and yogurt can be a great source of a treat for the dog but in too spare quantities.
Overeating of dairy products can be dangerous for the dog’s digestive system as they have less lactose, which is an enzyme present in the stomach responsible for the breakdown of sugar from the dairy products. The owners have to avoid dairy products for the dogs who are lactose intolerant.
