When you’re having your dinner and your dog is staring at you with loving, pleading eyes, you resist the temptation to share your food with him because you know you’re not supposed to.
But have you ever wondered what can he actually eat? While most of us know that chocolate is a huge no-no, here are 9 common foods that both you and your pet can enjoy together, health benefits and all:
Protein serves as the main energy source for dogs, and since chicken has a low calorie count, it’s perfect for your dog to consume, if cooked appropriately. It not only helps your dog to build lean muscle mass but also smooth skin and a brilliant coat, thanks to the Omega 6 fatty acids. Additionally, their bones are also strengthened by the amino acids and glucosamine present!
Plain turkey is also very nutritious for dogs and is already a common ingredient found in most pet food. Besides the delectable taste, pet owners can opt to further supplement your pet’s diet by grounding turkey necks finely into your pet’s current food – it contains plenty of calcium, essential fatty acids, proteins, and enzymes.
Everyone knows that fatty salmon brings shine to your pet’s fur coats because it is full of Omega 3 fatty acids. What most pet owners don’t know is that salmon can also promote healthy joints and a general decrease in inflammation in dogs, as well as a healthy cardiovascular system in the long run.
Well-cooked pork is another great source of protein for dogs. It also contains Vitamin B12 that improves the function of three types of enzymes, and it can transform homocysteine, an amino acid, into a usable form. If left unused in the bloodstream, a high level of homocysteine may lead to cardiovascular disease. However, pet owners should take note that pork also contains a high fat content, which might cause digestive or heart problems if consumed excessively.
These root vegetables not only contain great dietary fibre, but are also low in fat and full of vitamins A, B6, and C. All in all, they help your furry friend maintain healthy eyes, muscles, skin, and immune systems! Sweet potato is also known to help obese pets lose weight, as its higher fibre content displaces calories. We’re certain that your dog will soon come to love the sweet flavour of this superfood.
A great snack for your dogs at any time, the crunchiness of this fruit helps to clean your dog’s teeth, removing harmful plaque and tartar buildup. It’s also full of various vitamins, low in protein, and high in both fibre and antioxidants. Just like how they’re healthy for us to consume, apples are also great for your dog – just remember to core it as the seeds can become a choking hazard for them.
Feeding your dog asparagus might sound oddly fancy, but this vegetable is an extremely rich source of vitamins, minerals, and natural antioxidants too! Antioxidants help to prevent diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, so spare no expense and feed away. Here’s a tip for easy consumption – grill or boil it till it’s soft to bite!
Venison is deer meat, which is not only low in fat and cholesterol but also high in vitamin B and minerals like zinc, phosphorus, and iron. It’s also a helpful alternative for dogs who suffer from beef allergies or food intolerance, since it’s a novel type of meat. Venison is also great for your dog’s overall heart health.
This berry is said to improve your dog’s mental cognition, and over time they will be able to learn tricks and tasks more easily. Mulberries are also high in iron and resveratrol, which ensures that blood vessels are relaxed, improving holistic blood circulation. As if that’s not all, mulberries also come packed full with antioxidants that reduce the risks of dangerous gene mutations in dogs.
