What People Foods are Safe for my dog and cat? Often you are told “don’t feed people food!” However, there are safe foods which have food value. So, what are these foods? These fruits have great food value:
- Apples Bananas
- Blueberries Cantaloupe
- Cranberries Cucumbers
- Mangos Oranges
- Peaches Pears
- Pineapple Pumpkin
- Raspberries Strawberries
Your pet can be introduced to these at an early age to “widen” their palate. I have never owned a kitty that liked Cantaloupe but I have had many clients who said their pet loves it! These are all foods low in calories , contain additional fiber and have unique minerals. If you have a diabetic patients you need to be careful with the higher sugar fruits ( example apples, strawberries).
Fruits to avoid:
cherries are toxic to cats and dogs
grapes and raisins can cause kidney damage.
Citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and grapefruit as well as persimmons can cause an upset stomach. Dr. Becky M
