TWO OPTIONS FOR THE GOOD/BAD FOOD BELOW - bigger list with name only, smaller with name + reason
GOOD Human Food:
Oatmeal - provides lots of fibre as well as some vitamins and minerals.
Watermelon (not including Seeds/Rind) - low in calories and packed with nutrients, such as vitamin A and vitamin C.
Salmon (cooked, boneless) - great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to reduce inflammation and may help keep your dog’s skin and fur healthy.
Carrots - low in calories and a good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre.
BAD Human Food:
Grapes/Raisin - contain toxic compounds that can lead to rapid kidney failure.
Chocolate - contains theobromine and caffeine, two stimulants that dogs can't metabolize.
Onions - contain N-propyl disulfide, which is toxic and damages your dog’s red blood cells, reducing their ability to carry oxygen through the body.
Avocado - contains a toxin called persin which is highly poisonous and may lead to fluid accumulation in the lungs and chest.
