Ingredients that are safe for your dog
- Peanut butter: As previously stated, xylitol may be found in some peanut butters. Make sure you read the labels thoroughly. Dogs can eat a modest amount of peanut butter that does not include xylitol.
- Flour and oats: These foods are high in fiber and aid digestion.
- Pumpkin: Pumpkin is a high-fiber food. Fresh pumpkin may be cooked and mashed or canned pumpkin can be used in baking. If you buy canned pumpkin, be sure it’s 100 percent pumpkin puree with no added sugar or spices.
- Small quantities of yogurt are fine to feed to your dog. If a considerable amount is consumed, vomiting and diarrhea may occur.
Common Baking Ingredients that are not safe for your dog
Artificial sweeteners: These can include xylitol, which in excessive doses can cause life-threatening low blood sugar and liver failure. Read all ingredient labels carefully because xylitol can be included in some foods, such as peanut butter.
Chocolate: As much as we humans enjoy chocolate, it is poisonous to dogs. Chocolate consumption can result in anything from a little stomachache to a serious rise in heart rate, blood pressure, and even convulsions. Dark chocolate and cocoa powder used in baking should be handled with caution since they are very concentrated.
Raisins: Your favorite Christmas fruitcake might include raisins, which are poisonous! Even little quantities of raisins can cause renal disease in dogs.
