What can I cook for my dog?

April 13, 2012

Figuring out things to cook for your dog does not have to be a difficult task. Dogs will usually eat just about anything. Never the less it is important to know what foods your dog will enjoy and at the same time help your dogs digestive system or their body in general. Making sure your dog gets the right nutrients is very important.

Basic meats like chicken, turkey, and red meat are always good choices, but when serving your pup, don’t just give it to them and slap it in their bowl, be creative. If you’re going to cook for an animal, it might as well be good. Be careful to remove any bones as they may splinter and could potentially cause your dog to choke.

A great dish to serve you dog would be chicken and rice. Not only is it full of nutrients that will help a growing pup, it will also taste delicious. A rule of thumb is don’t cook anything that you yourself wouldn’t eat. Spices however are not a dogs best friend and should be left out.

Dogs are omnivores so they will eat a small amount of vegetables. Many dogs favor potatoes. Sometimes they won’t eat it by itself., but if you mix it up with some steak you won’t see any left after the dinner is over. Other vegetables like carrots, celery, cabbage, broccoli and others are also good for your dog and are often rich in vitamines and other important nutrients.

Fruit is generally as good for dogs as it is for humans. You do however need to be careful when choosing what type of fruit to serve your dog. Seeds from apples or pears and pits from cherrys or apricots contain cyanide which is poisonous. The fruit itself is not dangerous to the dog. In general, fruit should be served in modest quantities as too much can lead to diarrhea.

Spices and dogs are not friends. Prepared food should be served plain. No chili, pepper or other spices, neither hot nor mild. When serving the food. Make sure it is at room temperature. If the food is too hot he may get burnt gobbling up the delicous feast you cooked for him.
