Ok, just wanted some advise on giving table scraps to dogs. I hear diff, stories from people and wanted to get a everyone on here's opinion. So the question is....do or do not? O' and why or why not.
yeah a lot of people feed their dogs fast food dog scraps ( not saying everyone on here does) but IMO that is a big no no for me. A lot of people i know also give there dogs all kinds of meat bones , this is also a no no imo.I guess my dinners are healthy then most? When I do have scraps left over its from dinner and what they end up getting is green beans/corn/carrots, potatoes, gravy and bits of bread. If I eat it why could they not? I know there are a lot of things dogs should not eat but when its my own homemade healthy dinner scraps I see nothing wrong with that. *shrug*
lol talking of eggs, my moms Miniature Poodle Jack can not eat eggs, he will vomit every time with in 5 minutes of ingesting them so no eggs for Jackie!
Moose loves Nylabone that's all he gets.yeah a lot of people feed their dogs fast food dog scraps ( not saying everyone on here does) but IMO that is a big no no for me. A lot of people i know also give there dogs all kinds of meat bones , this is also a no no imo.
I agree... I do the same thing. But she gets it only at her feeding times which is different from ours - thus she usually lies in her bed, asleep, when we eat. I usually put the scraps in a ziplock container in the fridge with her name on it and mix it in with her dry food when feeding time rolls by.I give my dogs scraps, why waste it?
Table begging is a taught behavior and I tell everyone to wait until after dinner, make a scrap plate and I dish it out like I do normal treats. If its gravy or the likes I mix it up with their food.
LOL.....let me know if you figure it out! LOLSpoospirit I'm not so sure I would necessarily call that "table scraps". The more I think about it what is the definition of "table scraps"? If we cook all our kids meals wouldn't that then be considered "table scraps"? Hmmm going to have to think about this some more...
I, personally, don't see anything wrong with giving my dogs left over scraps... but "proper" scraps for dogs, meat scraps, gravy, steamed vegies... ummm, NO cooked pork scraps though, I have found years ago that this gives loose stools. :mmph:
Doesn't pork have the risk of causing pancreatitis as well? So I agree there NO PORK, but the eggs I give, boiled meats yes, yogert yes, expecially if they have an upset tummy, canned pumpkin for diarea, garlic is good for keeping flees away, I can see alot of foods here that are IMO ok if not just plain good to give a dog. Thank you for your input and if anyone has anymore please go ahead! I like to take chicken livers, blend them with honey and graham crackers and bake in the micro for 15 min and give that as a treat, they LOVE it!!! We call it "puppy crack" LOL! It works great if you have a dog that is very food driven in the ring, you can hold it in your mouth if like me you forget an outfit with pockets LOL and it smells like graham crackers lol, my 6 yr old thought it was brownies one day and snacked one up and took a bite! I laughed so hard as she said mmmmmm this is good, then chewed a little and she got this look on her face like she had just eaten a BUG! and said, actually mommy I don't like it once I start chewing it LOL!!!!!! :rofl:NO cooked pork scraps though, I have found years ago that this gives loose stools. :mmph:
