Dog Blog: Treats for you and your pup
Their cute little puppy-eyes may make you want to give them whatever they want, but dogs can’t always eat what humans eat. Make sure you know the foods that dogs can and can’t have before sharing with them.
I usually stick to giving my dog Rocko fruits and vegetables. If I ever think of giving him something new I google it just to make sure before I do.
Okay for dogs:
Carrots – vitamin A
Apples – contain vitamin A and C
Mango – vitamins A, B6, C and E
Salmon – high in omega-3 fatty acids; a good way to give dogs some vitamins they need
Sweet potatoes – high in vitamin A and fiber
Oatmeal – source of dietary fiber
Yogurt (unsweetened and unflavored) – calcium and protein
Eggs (fully cooked) – biotin, protein, riboflavin and selenium
Pineapple – vitamin C
Tropical Fruit bowls for you and your pup
Yogurt (plain, no added sugar or flavoring)
I threw these together for Rocko’s first birthday.
1 cup of shredded carrots
2 cups of oats (unsweetened, unflavored and cooked)
1 tablespoon of honey
½ cup of peanut butter
3 mashed bananas
Mix all the ingredients together and cook in the oven for about 15 minutes on 350 F (the egg needs to cook completely) or until golden brown.
