Can dogs eat grains like brown rice?
Yes. Rice is a common ingredient in many dog foods, but only when it is fully cooked. Never feed your dog uncooked rice or unbaked rice flour. I like to practice moderation here as dogs are primarily meant to consume meat.
Can dogs eat almonds?
No. Almonds are unsafe for dogs.Almonds can get caught in the dog’s windpipe and pose a choking hazard if not chewed. Macadamia nuts are more toxic; it’s best to avoid avoids as well. It’s almost important to never feed your dog food with added salt.
Can dogs eat peanut butter?
Yes. This is a popular ingredient in dog treats and a good source of protein. However, always be sure to check that the peanut butter you buy is free of xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.
Can dogs eat cinnamon?
No. Cinnamon can irritate the inside of a dog’s mouth and can dangerously lower their blood sugar if consumed in excess. It’s best to avoid all together.
Can dogs eat ice cream?
No. Ice cream is very high in sugar and can be very upsetting to a dog’s sensitive stomach. Even if your dog is not lactose intolerant, it’s best to avoid.
Can dogs eat grapes or raisins?
No. Grapes are extremely toxic to dogs and should be carefully avoided.
Can dogs eat yogurt?
Yes. Yogurt contains probiotics that can be useful in small amounts. However, this only include unsweetened and plain yogurt with no artificial ingredients.
Can dogs eat sweet potatoes?
Yes! Sweet potatoes are full of vitamins and fiber. Be sure to always peel your sweet potatoes as the skins can be tough for them to digest. Also be sure that any sweet potato you feed your dog is fully cooked.
