Just for Kids: Special Treats for Your Dog

It's important to give your dog a proper diet. But it's fun to share your food with your pet, too. Is there anything you can give your pup that is safe?

Sure, there is. But you have to know about the eating habits of dogs. The digestive system of dogs is different than yours so some foods that you enjoy may make your pet sick.

So, if you'd like to share your food occasionally, follow these guidelines:

If any of these items cause diarrhea within a day or two, then make sure you don't give it to him anymore. Remember, treats from your table should be given only occasionally, and it should never be more than 10 percent of your dog's daily intake. Your pet needs a balanced diet provided in dog food.
