Let’s face it, sharing our food with our dogs is a common practice and can also be considered a very bad habit. Why? Because, even though we consider them more and more as family members and we can’t resist their big eyes, dogs can’t eat all the food we eat! Today, we are here to list the foods that we can give our pooch without affecting his health. And. if you didn’t check out the first part of this blog, you can do so here.
Salmon and Tuna
Fish is an incredible source of omega-3 fatty acids, and guess which foods from the animal kingdom our four-legged friends prefer? Salmon and tuna! Both of these foods are not only good for our dog’s body, but the fatty acids in fish keep the dog’s coat shiny and healthy.
By feeding your pet salmon and tuna, you will also help boost the dog’s immune system. Tuna is known to be a snack for cats, but that’s just a stereotype, your dogs love it too: you have to see it to believe it.
This aromatic plant is very healthy for dogs and fights bad breath. To give it to your puppy, add a few tablespoons of chopped parsley to his baby food to give him a color and flavor he’ll love.
In addition to naturally improving his breath, it’s a good source of beta-carotene, potassium and calcium.
Fruit salad is a healthy food choice for dogs, especially on warmer days.
For a healthy fruit salad, choose the following fruits: strawberries, blueberries, melon, bananas and watermelon.
Pears can be eaten by dogs with the precision of removing the skin and seeds.
The sweet taste of this fruit is usually very appreciated by the four-legged puppy and we guarantee that it will be good for his health.
Feeding apple slices will help clean food residue from the dog’s teeth. In addition, apples are a good source of vitamin A, C and fiber.
Peel this fruit into small pieces, removing the core and seeds before giving it to your puppy as a snack.
Eggs are another great healthy snack. It’s a protein-rich food that your four-legged friends will love, and it’s one of the 20 foods that are good for dogs.
If you’re wondering if dogs can eat eggs, the answer to that question is absolutely yes. Dogs can eat eggs, as long as they are always fed cooked and peeled. So yes to boiled eggs for our four-legged friends, possibly accompanied by a nice slice of lean meat.
In our list, there is definitely broccoli, an incredibly healthy food for dogs. This vegetable is rich in vitamins and has a great nutritional value for dogs.
But beware, the administration of broccoli must be controlled, it should never exceed 10% of the diet, to avoid risk of gastrointestinal irritation.
Yes! Even peas can be introduced into the diet of our four-legged friends. And you’ll be surprised to know that our furry friends are literally crazy about them.
Why are peas so good for dogs? The answer is that this food is an excellent source of potassium, phosphorus and vitamin B.
Flaxseeds or Flaxseed Oil
Flaxseed is another excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are excellent for the dog’s skin and coat.
Whole flaxseeds are healthy enough for your dog and can be mixed into the food that the puppy eats regularly.
Flaxseed oil is a better source of omega-3 acids because it is more concentrated, even though it does not contain fiber.
