Almost all human food is bad for dogs (and us) ... except for meat.
Dogs should only eat what a wolf eats
Any type of baked goods or anything else with xylitol, the sugar substitute, can also be fatal. The xylitol lowers their blood sugar, sometimes to the
point of fatal. Also very bad are macadamia nuts (fatal), avacodos (they're not sure why), any form of chocolate (bad), or too much corn in the dog
food. Many fruit seeds and pits should be avoided, if possible, some contain trace amounts of arsenic, released by chewing, and concentrated if the
animal keeps eating them.
Good for dogs, besides meat and fish, are sweet potatoes, pumpkin, squashes, carrots, peas, apples, sometimes cooked egg (runnier yolk is best),
little bits of olive oil.
We have wolves and coyotes and foxes where I live, besides meat (rabbits, small game), they'll pick the raspberries and saskatoons right off the
branches, so they must like some variety too. One of my dogs also does this, as well as eating all the rose hips he can reach. I have to go around
the yard and clear any questionable mushrooms growing because of this.
Make sure if feeding your dog home made food, that the protein portion is high, and cooked lightly, they don't need filler. If doing any form of a
raw food diet, read up on keeping the meat portion safe, bacteria builds fast if not properly prepared. Research well first.
