With the holidays around the corner, it’s the time for holiday meal planning and table scraps for your pups could be on the horizon! You’ve probably fed your dog human food at some point in your life, but to do so safely it should be in moderation and include things that are not harmful to your pet. It’s very important to be sure the food you are offering is safe to avoid any adverse reactions, choking, or long-term health issues. Our dogs deserve to celebrate and partake in the festivities, so we’ve come up with a list of some healthy human foods you can share.
This is a partial list of foods that are safe for your pet. Feel free to share some of your favorite healthy snacks with your dog. If you are unsure of any foods that are unsafe we recommend not feeding them to your pet. If you have any questions about what is safe, please contact us by calling (843) 795-7574.
