Dont we all just love our 4 legged friends 🙂 In fact we love them so much that we have no problem sharing our supper with them, and we cant wait to see them tuck into all the leftovers from Christmas Dinner. But before you give in to those puppy eyes look at the list of foods that are actually bad for them…so you are in fact not doing them a favor 🙁
- Raw meat, Fish & Eggs
- Candy & Baked Goods
- Sugary Foods
- Garlic & Onions
- Bacon & Fatty Meats
- Salty Foods
- Milk & Cheese
- And the list goes on…
Although I think (and that is really just a personal opinion) in moderation some things might be okay…for example I read that dairy products should be avoided, yet we have recipes for safe doggy treats containing yogurt? The same goes for peanut butter, so I think you should use your discretion, and also take into consideration what foods you know your pup is allergic to, and what you know from experience he cannot digest.
Rather try some of these quick to prepare treats that are safe and delicious 🙂 Please click on the link to see the full recipe from the original authors as well as the instructions.
