Healthy People Foods for Pets
What people foods are healthy to give to pets?
Good question, Anton. If you’re interested in giving human foods as treats to your pet, some safe and healthy options may include:
Apple slices (without seeds)
Cooked lean meats
Baked potatoes (no unripe potatoes or potato plants)
Bread (no raisin bread or raw bread dough)
Plain, cooked pasta
Make sure that all treats are cut into sizes that are easy for your pet to chew. If you notice any digestive upset as a result of adding new foods, be sure to discontinue giving foods that are causing trouble. And please remember that treats should make up only five to 10 percent of your pet’s diet--the rest should come from a nutritionally complete pet food.
