When it comes to trick or treat, this dog wants all treats.
Some dogs will eat anything.
Our guy Sydney LOVES to eat! But what he loves changes, two healthy additions to his diet have been pumpkin and yams (in small quantities).
Do not overdo carrots, yams and pumpkin.
Dogs get diabetes like we do. So go easy on sweet foods, do not feed sugary foods, refined white bread or other simple carbohydrates. With one exception, I feed white rice when one of my dogs becomes ill. Simple and easy to digest, cooked white rice and a little cottage cheese for protein help my dogs back to health.
Healthy cooked foods for dogs
Healthy raw foods for dogs
- fresh snap peas
- apple in small pieces
Some dogs are fussy or picky eaters
Try small amounts and wait a few days to make sure your dog digests any new “healthy treats” because some dogs, older ones for instance, take a while to adjust to any new food, no matter how healthy.
What healthy treats does your dog like to eat?
