“Is it safe to feed my dog ​​human food? That’s a question I am often asked. And yes, in many cases that is certainly possible, but it is important to know which foods are healthy for your pets. ‘

Dr. Adams explained that dogs are omnivores, meaning they can survive on meat and plant foods.

“So it’s safe to include a range of foods like fruits, vegetables, human-grade meat, some grains, and even yogurt in their diet,” she said.

She said that a “small spoonful of yogurt will boost [your dog’s] intake of proteins, calcium and good bacteria ‘(stock image)
