Wendell O. Belfield, D.V.M., author of How to Have a Healthy Dog, tells us to feed our dogs table scraps, including meat, vegetables, grains, and even salad. Great!
Avoid giving your dog sugar any sweets, he says. Chocolate may kill a dog. It can lead to urinary incontinence, seizures, and death.
For variety, he suggests, mix scraps with a little commercial dog food from time to time. Be sure it contains no additive accept vitamins and minerals. Dr. Belfield says to always supplement your dog's food with minerals and multivitamins, especially C and D.
