Better options for your dog to eat.

Updated: May 21, 2023

A great way to get your dog some protein is through the egg. In fact, eggs -- while a loaded omelet isn’t a great thing to share with your dog, plain eggs are. They’re a great source of protein and Omega fatty acids.. Again, just make sure there are no seasonings or added ingredients.

Dogs love peanut butter, and it's a great way to help curb your pup's hunger while having fun at the same time. Just be sure you're not giving too much peanut butter at once and that you are choosing a natural, human-grade peanut butter made without xylitol.

Your dog is sure to love rice. Brown or white, both types are easy to digest, making them a good option for your fur buddy's stomach when it's upset. I have made rice for my greyhound. Mix with some plain boiled chicken for a balanced meal that is easy for them to eat and digest.

Cheese is good for your dog. You can feed it to them, or even give them a small amount of cheese as a treat. Cheese has a high fat content which can lead to digestive distress and some dogs are sensitive to dairy products, so it's best to test out a small amount of cheese with your dog before feeding more constantly.

Yogurt is a great source of protein and probiotics for your pup. Plain yogurt is safe for dogs as long as they're not sensitive to dairy. Yogurt can help support healthy digestion and reduce anxiety in dogs, so it's a good choice if your fur baby has digestive issues or if you're looking for ways to improve their health.

Meat, fish and poultry are great for dogs. These meats are all high in protein, which is essential for supplying your dog's body with energy. Plus, many of these meats come from healthy sources that aren't harmful to your pet like chicken or turkey breast.

Potatoes and sweet potatoes are nutritious for your dog to enjoy. Although I was always told not to give dogs potatoes, my research proved that was a myth. Potatoes are a good source of vitamin A, while also providing your dog with fiber. However, make sure that you are only feeding your pet cooked potatoes since raw ones can contain higher levels of solanine which can be toxic. When baked or mashed onto a lick mat, these two veggies make a great treat that keeps your dog healthy.

Pasta is an easily digestible carb for dogs who need a bland diet or have an upset stomach. It's also good for dogs who have sensitive tummies. Plain pasta is best for your fur baby.

Oatmeal is a good choice if you're looking to give your dog some additional nutrition. Oatmeal is high in fiber and vitamins, and just like us, your dog will love the taste. My grandmother gave her dog oatmeal every morning. Make sure that the only ingredient on your food list is plain oatmeal without added sugar or anything else.

If your dog has eaten a substance that could be harmful, call Animal Poison Control immediately or take your dog to your veterinarian.
