Happily feeding your adorable pet, at the table, with treats. Always questionable. But, food, that you eat is not necessarily a treat for your canine pal. Funnily enough, felines are more, predictably fussy. Doggies on the other hand, will cheerfully swallow, chew and if not regurgitated, whatever is put in one end, will inevitably come out of the other! That’s another mess you’ve got me in!

As a dog, may rightly, think. “Why are you poisoning me?” Or, “What did I do wrong?” Going off its food for some time, to try and figure out, what it should eat and shouldn’t. Appearing to be suddenly “fussy”. Sticking to the good and trusted advice of the doggy world, keep it simple keep it dog. Whether your choice and friendly friend works out safe, and un-harmful may take trial and error. A chicken vindaloo takeaway might not even go down well with some humans, let alone a woof! There are shelves full of appetising and safe snacketts for our poppets. If pal sniffs and looks interested you can try it out on a little human treat, but not all your leftovers at once! Remember dogs are carnivores!
