Many dog owners can’t resist giving human food to their dogs. Humans and dogs metabolize food differently, so some food that is safe for human consumption can be harmful to dogs. In some cases, it can be fatal, especially when eaten in large amounts. Some human foods contain ingredients that are not only unhealthy but also toxic to dogs. To avoid health issues and adverse effects, it’s important to identify which human food has nutritional value and is safe for dogs to eat. Always check the label of food products for unhealthy and toxic ingredients. Human foods should be given to dogs in moderation and only as an occasional treat.
