Foods they can eat

According to César Millan, an expert in animal care, dogs can eat any type of meat, such as chicken, turkey, pork, veal, lamb etc. Ideally, this meat has been grilled or put in the oven because fried meat is bad for your dog. Adding salt is also a bad idea.

Fish

Yes, fish is also a good option for your pet because it is a source of animal protein that contains large amounts of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, something that will help keep your pet's coat healthy and shiny. Of course, pay close attention to removing all the bones. Again, avoid using salt. Even though fish is very healthy, it should not be used as the main part of your pet's diet.

Tuna

Tuna, in particular, can be consumed by both dogs and cats, however it should never be the basis of their daily diet. In addition, it is recommended to offer them fresh tuna instead of canned, as it is a food high in fatty acid content such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, and as mentioned before, it offers benefits to their hair and skin. In addition, it does not harm their stomach because it is easy to digest.

Eggs

Eggs can be a good source of protein for your cat and dog. However, the egg must always be cooked as raw eggs can contain salmonella. Uncooked eggs also contain a protein known as avidin, which, although not toxic to the animal, acts as an antinutrient, preventing its body from properly absorbing other vitamins.

Carrots

Raw or cooked, carrots are a beneficial food for your pet. We recommend that you cook it, as this aids digestion. Carrots are high in beta-carotene, which in turn is transformed into vitamin A, which helps improve your pet's vision. It works as an antidiarrheal and acts as a natural toothbrush.

Pumpkin

It is another beneficial food for both dogs and cats since it is a source of natural fibre that helps maintain intestinal flora and relieve constipation. It acts as an antioxidant, contains folic acid and vitamin B9, and it is a great ally in a varied diet because of its low-calorie count.

Apples

Although apples are great for our pets, we must make sure that they eat them in moderate amounts, especially for diabetic dogs and cats. Furthermore, we should remove the seeds from the interior, as they contain amygdalin, a compound that turns into cyanide. Apples are rich in vitamins C and A, folic acid, antioxidants, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium. Not only that, but they are a source of natural hydration.

Plantain

It is a fruit that both cats and dogs can ingest but in very small amounts, as it can cause diarrhoea. So, feed this to your pet gradually and in small portions. On the plus side, it contains potassium, which helps strengthen their bones and tone their muscles. It contains vitamins B6 and C, which will help their immune system and prevent cardiovascular diseases, as well as being a natural probiotic that will help regulate their intestinal flora.

Yoghurt

Pets can consume yoghurt as long as they are not lactose intolerant, and we must also be careful to choose a natural yoghurt without added sugars or sweeteners. Yoghurt can provide nutrients such as potassium, calcium, sodium, in addition to helping with digestive problems such as constipation and diarrhea.

Garlic

Garlic is a food that is very bad for pets, according to a study carried out in 2000 which suggests that garlic could cause anaemia due to its toxic component n-propyl disulfide. However, for this to happen we would have to offer large amounts of garlic daily to our pets. According to the Institute of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Zurich, for garlic to become a toxic substance it must exceed 5 grams per kilo of body weight. Instead, the consumption of 4 grams per day for a week (maximum) in the diet of our pets, can serve as a natural antiparasitic.
