These days we pay a lot of attention to what we eat. As dogs are part of our families, they should get the same treatment. Perhaps we have to be more attentive to our dog’s food than ours. Why do I say that? Because very often food producing companies say that the ingredients that can be used to make human food are just perfect as our dog’s food.
If I can get sick because of some food ingredients, my dog might have the same problem. Do you want to expose your dog to such a risk? I don’t. That’s why I prefer to cook for my dog and I advise you to do so because you know what your dog is eating. Provide him with healthy food for dogs.

This way you can help your furry buddy live a longer and happier life, exactly how you want him to be. Let’s talk about some human food or ingredients that can be consumed by your dog too.
