10 Human Foods Dogs Can Eat

Broth (without salt or onion)

The broth is a great option that helps us to hydrate convalescent dogs , but it can also help us to soften the dry food in puppies. As long as it is made without salt or onion, the broth is a great alternative to encourage our colleagues to drink, also providing them with extra nutrition.

Olive oil

There are many uses and benefits of olive oil for dogs and more and more people decide to add a teaspoon to their dog’s food on an occasional basis. This food provides vitamins and healthy fats, but it is also an excellent laxative and its consumption improves and helps joints and muscles .

More human food than a dog can eat

Have you been wanting to know more foods to offer your dog? Here is a small list of alternative foods that your dog may also like:

  • Warm oatmeal is an excellent food for dogs suffering from chronic constipation.
  • Brewer’s yeast is especially indicated in elderly dogs, but it can also be useful at any stage. It provides vitamins, improves the condition of the skin and hair and also purifies the intestinal tract.
  • Liver is an excellent food, due to its contribution of vitamins, protein and omega 3 and 6, but it is recommended to moderate its consumption to once or twice a week at most.
  • Unlike macadamia nuts, which are toxic to dogs, we can offer raw almonds and hazelnuts to our best friend if he wishes.
  • We can enrich a homemade diet with different spices, such as parsley, rosemary, thyme or turmeric.
  • Spirulina is an algae that has become popular in vegan and vegetarian diets due to its high content of protein, amino acids, vitamins and iron. It is ideal for sick dogs or pregnant dogs.

Details to be considered

Remember that, although you can occasionally offer these 10 human foods that dogs can eat, it is important not to abuse the extras in their diet , a measure that will help us prevent overweight and obesity. Remember that high-quality commercial dog food already contains all the nutrients necessary for optimal development.

However, if your goal is to offer your dog homemade food permanently, do not forget to consult your veterinarian to find out in detail what your dog’s nutritional needs are. The specialist will tell you, not only the quantities, but also the necessary supplements or essential ingredients.
