Zuko, my 10 year old Golden Retriever, could be in a dead sleep, dreaming about running wild and free in a field of daisies, until I open the cheddar cheese package in the kitchen. His ears perk up and he is (somehow) instantly at my side, staring up at me with those imploring, adorable eyes. He patiently waits while I grate cheese for my tacos or slice cheese for my sandwich. He knows that the chances of getting a tasty morsel of his own are about 99%.
Pet owners are very concerned with ensuring their dogs and cats eat food that is healthy, natural, and made from ingredients they can pronounce. Millennials (I know, you hear this everywhere…) are a dynamic force behind this change. Many feed their furry pals “people food” and raw diets are becoming a new trend. Some folks even make a game out of tossing carrots for mid-air mouth catches or stacking chunks of cheese on the nose and making their dogs wait for the highly anticipated “OK!” Ever seen a Golden lick peanut butter off the end of his nose? Our teenagers thought that one was quite funny.
But besides knowing that grapes and chocolate are no-no’s, what is safe to feed your pet?
Our friends at Top Dog Tips created a really cool infographic that demystifies this very important topic. So we wanted to share it with all of you. The article, 32 Dog Food and Feeding Myths Debunked, offers awesome insights for pet parents. And the infographic is nicely done. Enjoy, Scollar Pack!
