If you’ve been living on this planet for the last sixty years or so at least, chances are that you have grown up seeing this on the television or on comic strips: Mom leaves the table to get something? Don’t worry; you know what to do with all that unpalatable food on your plate! One swift downward motion and your trusty accomplice waiting under the table can finish it up. Not even a trace left of it anywhere and no one the wiser (or so you think!)
But even if that’s not the case, our adorable feline companions often come up to the table and ask for food. Who can resist those big puppy eyes? Try saying no if you can: we’ve tried, and failed, over and over again. It’s one of the most difficult jobs on the planet, we say!
Nevertheless, “people food” can actually be really bad for your dog. This really isn’t about body-issues, folks, but serious problems like worms, diarrhea or even choking hazards. Did you know that even bones from the neck of a chicken can prove to be a hazard to your dog? We sure didn’t know that for a long time! But don’t worry, there’s still plenty that your pet can actually eat off your plate: and some of these choices may even surprise you!
