12 Best Human Foods Dogs CAN Eat

If there’s one thing you know as a dog parent, it’s that your pup loves ‘hooman’ food… but does your ‘hooman’ food love Fido back?

Many dog parents are curious if their dog can handle a diet beyond store-bought dog food. But, which ones are safe for your canine companion?

Don’t worry. We’re here to help!

We’re going to review twelve common foods that you might be considering feeding to your furry fave to let you know which ones to try and which ones to avoid. Just one quick reminder!

Wait! Don’t Forget Your Vet!

Before you decide to make changes or additions to Fido’s diet, we strongly encourage you to consult a veterinarian beforehand.

Your dog’s age, breed, size, health history, allergies, and nutritional needs are all factors that your vet may consider to ensure that Fido’s new diet will be a beneficial one. After all, some human foods might be safe, but they might not be the best option for your pet’s unique needs. So, it’s always better to double-check!

Also, your vet may also suggest not going overboard with these additions and could suggest avoiding raw food to ensure more efficient digestion – which will come in handy if the food you’re cooking just so happens to land on the floor. 😉

With that out of the way, let’s get started with the twelve foods your pup can try as part of their balanced diet!

Can Dogs Eat Broccoli?

The first big YES goes to broccoli!

Broccoli might not be a kid’s favorite food per se, but your dog might bark to differ – especially since broccoli provides calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber.

As we mentioned earlier, just be sure to cook the broccoli for better digestion. And to avoid a choking hazard for smaller dogs, we also suggest breaking the broccoli up into smaller pieces and to check if the stems are too hard to chew.

Can Dogs Eat Celery?

Celery is not only the perfect wingman for chicken wings, but it’s also a nice addition to your pup’s balanced diet!

The Vitamin A, C, K, and fiber that celery provides makes it a great option to try for your canine companion.
