Does your dog like special treats? If so, he may want something sweet. While it is not advised to give dogs foods that humans consider sweets, you can give them something that they consider sweet. There are many different fruits that your dog can eat and one of these treats is bananas. There are also a wide variety of foods that your dog should not have.
Bananas provide a lot of vitamins and nutrients that your dog can benefit from. They provide a great energy boost for exercise time and they can also help provide a shiny coat.
Other Fruits and Veggies
Dogs love fruits and veggies. This is why they beg for them. They crave something sweet, just like you do. Dogs can safely eat broccoli, carrots, zucchini, cauliflower, peas, beans apples, and melons.
Using these fruits and veggies to make special dog meals and dog treats can help increase their vitamin intake, and provide them nutrition that their dog food cannot provide on its own. Plus, your dog will be very appreciative.
Chocolate is one of those items that you should never give your dog. It contains a chemical called theobromide, which is toxic to dogs at any level. If your dog consumes a large amount of chocolate, they should be seen by a veterinarian, especially if they have preexisting health problems.
Let’s face it, dogs love bones and we love to see them happy. Certain types of bones are good for your dog’s teeth and mental health, but some can pose hazards. Make sure that the bones you provide your dog do not have sharp edges. Give them large bones, like knuckles or marrow bones, but make sure to boil them first to ensure that there are no parasites on them.
When your dog begins to eat through the bone, rather than just chew on them, it is time to take them away so they don’t swallow sharp pieces or cut their gums.
Greasy Foods or Poultry
Dogs should not eat greasy foods. This is because their stomachs are no designed to process grease. Greasy foods can lead to diarrhea and dehydration.
Dogs should not eat poultry. This is because they do not have the proper enzymes to break down the meat. This is especially true for turkey meat.
Dogs should not eat pork products. Pork products can lead to indigestion, upset stomach and bloating. Dogs cannot break down pork fat. Because of the lack of enzymes in their saliva to begin breaking down pork fat, your dog will be uncomfortable for a long time.
There have been numerous reports of dogs requiring surgery to remove pork fat from their stomach. Because of this, it is important to avoid giving your dog any pork product.
Your Dog Shaking and Vitamin Deficiencies
Besides nervousness and anxiety, one of the main reasons dogs shake is because of vitamin deficiencies. Providing them high quality dog food with minimal byproducts can greatly increase their vitamin intake.
