Most of us have shared a table scrap or two with our dogs at some point—but have you ever wondered if the human foods your pup gets their paws on are actually safe for them to eat?
A survey revealed that 91% of pet parents have searched online to find out if a human food could make their dog sick, and 60% of pet owners say their dog has eaten human food that they later found out could make them sick*. Troublingly, only a little over half (55%) of pet parents in the same survey said they knew that grapes (which are very harmful if ingested) could make their dog sick.
At Rover, the health and wellbeing of pets is a top priority, so we wanted to create an interactive and educational resource of human foods that dogs can and can’t eat. We encourage you to search common household foods below to learn more about how they may affect your dog. Each food is listed as either a yes, maybe, or definite no for your dog’s diet and includes a link to an article with more information about that food. Take a look—you may even discover your pup’s new favorite snack!
