If you have a dog, you know that most are basically living, breathing vacuums. If there's food on the floor, your dog is trying to eat it. As a result, many dog owners often focus on the things that we know dogs can't eat, like onions, chocolate, grapes, gum, etc. But there are some surprising things you dog can actually eat that you should know about, too. Some things that seem totally non-dog friendly are not just OK for dogs to eat, but actually good for their health.
Sharing an ice cream cone with your dog will not do their health any favors, despite how happy your dog might seem to be eating it with you. But sharing a sweet potato with your dog could actually benefit their overall health. So here I've rounded up a few foods that you don't need to pull out of your dog's mouth, especially if your dog is more like a Roomba, sucking up food droppings behind your ankles as you cook in the kitchen. Not to mention, if you're interested in cooking your dog's meals at home, you can mix and match these ingredients to create a balanced and fresh meal that doesn't come from a can.
