Safe Table Scraps for Dogs

Posted on

To many pet owners, the addition of a dog to the family means there’s a very welcoming mouth to feed with expired leftovers. But are table scraps really that safe for dogs? We have had a look around to see which human foods work for dogs, and which should just be composted. The American Kennel Club has an exhaustive list, and we have a short summary below.

Human Food Dogs Can Eat
-A small amount of plain bread is okay, but don’t go overboard
-Coconut is actually super healthy for dogs
-Fish is fine, but watch for bones
-Peanut butter is allowed, but make sure it doesn’t contain Xylitol
-Tuna is fine in moderation, as long as it’s plain
(See the AKC website for more!)

Please Don’t Feed Your Dog These Things…
-chocolate
-avocado
-garlic
-onion
-grapes
(Again, these are just a few at a glance – see Food Beast for another great list)

At Catering Central we highly value health and whole foods – for humans. Just as the right food nourishes dogs to live their best life, we believe food plays a vital role in a person’s physical, and emotional health. Our social lives strengthen by building relationships over food, leading to a greater level of connectedness with the world around us. If you’re interested in having your next San Francisco Bay Area (94110, 94024) private or corporate event catered by a company working from this philosophy, call us today on (650) 961-3300. We can’t wait for your call!
