This is a mix of foods that are definitely NOT good for dogs ( chocolate) vs ones that you don't personally like to give your dogs (vegetables).Pedigree
ETA: and dog food in general :biggrin:
I guess you could call biological facts a raw fed bias :smile:This is a mix of foods that are definitely NOT good for dogs ( chocolate) vs ones that you don't personally like to give your dogs (vegetables).
Methinks your Raw Fed/Prey Diet bias is showing.
And as whiteleo said, you can feed those things to your dog, just don't expect them to get anything out of them. By far, not everything I eat is "necessary" or "good for me" or even part of a natural human diet, but that doesn't always keep me from eating it!Wow, thanks rannmiller that's quite a list, and I see that fruits and vegetables are included in the list but I thought that carrot sticks were o.k.? Not?
We also found carrots were good to keep the dog from chewing on things he shouldn't... like furniture! He especially likes the big ones that he can put in between his paws & gnaw. Or stealing the one that I'm eating. <lol>Vegetables as occasional treats will not hurt your dog, they have no nutritional value for them but my dogs like pieces of apple, carrots and green beans.
Hey everyone, we are the proud parents of a new puppy and since we are new at this I was hoping to compile a list of what foods dogs should definitely NOT be eating! Thanks in advance for all your help
Unless you pureed your dogs fruits and veggies, he wasn't getting as much from them as you might think.I agree with the list of kibble and the other things. Looks good to me
I disagree with the fruits and veggies being on the list
Before I began raw, I gave my dog fish and veggies for dinner. And about 1 apple per day. He's never had any problems whatsoever and his health is top notch because he's had bloodwork and exams done. For him to be this healthy, I think there ought to be some nutritional value...
I have and have had other people tell me that they do. I remember one time Thor got into some corn I had put out for the deer. Next time he pooped is was almost exclusively kernels of corn. The corn was so undigested that I could have washed them off and no one could have known that they had been through an animals body. I have seen the same with carrots. I'm not sure about borccoli because it's pretty soft anyway. I know grass comes out looking exactly the same way it looked going in except its twisted into a neat little rope. Wonder how they do that?If dog's can't digest fruits and veggies, that means that they would come out the same way that they went in right? I never saw pieces of carrots or broccoli in Aspen's stool. Same goes for apples.
Its probably because you cut the carrots up into small pieces. Try giving big chunks of it and you will see it garanteed LOLMaybe it's because I cut the carrots into little pieces...? Don't know for sure. Yeah, somehow my dog got a hold of corn too, don't know from what, because the kernels came out whole in his stool...But his stool was diarrhea too!! :wink:
Our dogs love bananas too. I went to Thailand a few years ago and spent some time on an elephant refuge and they fed the dogs there bananas mixed with a home made dinner. Its common for dogs to like bananas :biggrin:Oakley dies for bananas.. so she gets a piece as a snack here and there, same with soem other fruits. I could fee her worse.
