You might feed your dog a specific type of dog food and give them lots of doggy treats but there are human foods you can give them to. Some human foods can make a healthy alternative to a dog treat or simply just provide something beneficial for your dog. You need to make sure your dog has a healthy, balanced diet with all the nutrients that they require. Any dog foods that are labelled ‘complete’ should provide this, but a few human foods in moderation can also be good for your dog.

Here are 15 human foods that your dog can eat:

 

  • Bananas

High in potassium, magnesium and fibre, although some dogs don’t like the texture.

 

  • Carrots

Dogs love the crunchy texture. They are high in vitamins and good for your dog’s teeth.

 

  • Meat (no bones)

Some extra fresh protein is good for your dog, just don’t give them cooked bones.

 

  • Peanut butter

For some reason dogs adore peanut butter. High in protein and fat. Go for natural peanut butter, avoid brands that are high in salt and sugar.

 

  • Cheese

The smell of cheese is irresistible to dogs. Cheese is high in fat so use as a special treat only and don’t overfeed.

 

  • Salmon

Great for your dog’s coat and skin, good source of Omega 3 fatty acids.

 

  • Eggs

Hard boiled eggs are a good source of protein for your dog, avoid raw eggs (there is a lot of debate as to whether dogs should eat raw eggs or not).

 

  • Sweet potatoes

Another crunchy vegetable, a source of fibre and vitamins (C, B6).

 

  • Apples

Remember to take the pips and the stalk out. Source of fibre and vitamins and dogs tend to like the texture.

 

  •  Spinach

High in iron and other vitamins, has anti-inflammatory properties.
