Why your dog shouldn’t be eating off your plate
It’s difficult to keep our dogs off our plates when we enjoy a meal. Their cute eyes beg and beg to get a bite and they don’t stop at just one! They want to be part of everything we do and they always find our food more interesting than theirs no matter how much pain we take to provide them a tasty diet. Should we be encouraging this behavior? Are we unknowingly harming them by catering to their taste buds?
Our dinner can cause digestive distress for a little buddy
Their digestive system is much different from ours. With domestication, dogs can digest plant-based enzymes. They have an AMY2B gene that helps them digest plant-based proteins and carbohydrates. Human ingredients can be formulated into simple, delicious recipes that are easy to digest, free of meat and lactose.
Some ingredients in our meal can be toxic to little bub
Recipes that are delicious to us can contain harmful or toxic ingredients for dogs. Chocolate, raisins, grapes, macadamia nuts, almonds, onions, and garlic are all dangerous for dogs to eat. Sometimes processed foods contain artificial sweeteners like Xylitol that can poison our pooch. It’s best to leave our leftovers for us and to provide a healthy, balanced, and nutritious diet for our pets.
It could make our pooch fat
It is well known that our dogs should maintain a healthy weight to prevent heart and fatty liver disease. The human requirement for carbohydrates and fat is much more than what dogs are used to. Unknowingly, we may give them lifestyle diseases that can cause a lot of trauma and expensive vet bills for us and them
Not setting boundaries can encourage unwanted behavior
When dogs are fed off the table, they learn to approach us whenever we are eating. They start to exhibit begging behavior, which is a hard habit to break. Having dinner guests over with a begging pooch is quite embarrassing and difficult to handle. What’s worse – little buddy will fill up on human food and refuse his own!
