Ultimate Food Guide for Dogs: Approved, Harmful, and Allergies

Feeding your dog is an everyday necessity, Some dogs can be picky when it comes to food. Most of them get tired of the everyday dog food kibbles, when this happens, we often give them food cooked out of regular ingredients that are considered good for human consumption. But there are those food which are good for humans but can be dangerous to dogs. So what are these foods that are either clinically approved or harmful?

The Kardogshians, with the aid of veterinarian and pet food nutritionist Dr. Cecille Guzman, have collated some doggy approved food, and all it's perks and nutrient content as well as harmful food and what it does to your dog's body.

Most of pet owners, feed their pups blindly with any food that they as humans can possibly digest. While there are indeed plenty of food that are okay with dogs, there are some that really helps our dogs become healthier, these are only some...

  • Chicken - What dog would say no to chicken? It's full of protein and is extremely delicious. Just make sure you cook it first, boil it, roast it in the oven, whatever, just don't feed it raw, and also remove the bones, We know dogs love bones but chicken bones can be a choking hazard.
  • Salmon - Contains a whole lot of fat, but the good fat, the fat that makes your dog's coat more healthier. Most dog show breeders recommend feeding your show dog salmon to get that glossy, soft and strong fur.
  • Eggs - Just like how popular to gym junkies eggs are because of it's high protein, eggs are just as good for your dog's muscle mass, We use to feed Khaleesi, one egg a day when she was pregnant so she can have the strength and energy during labor.
  • Cheese - Cheese contains several nutrients including, Vitamin A, Protein, Vitamin B12, Zinc and Calcium. This is good for your dog just as long as he or she is not lactose intolerant.
  • Peanut Butter - Many homemade dog treats nowadays contain this product. Now don't go rushing grabbing that peanut butter from your cupboard just yet! Check the ingredients at the back, and see if there's Xylitol, because this artificial sweetener can cause heart disease. So make sure your peanut butter does not contain Xylitol. Better yet, get an all natural un sweetened peanut butter.
  • Apple - Does your dog have bad breath? Apples are the all natural alternative to your ever so reliable denta stix, unlike denta stix though, apples can be taken as often as your dog would love to. Just make sure to remove the apple core and the seeds as it has been proven to be fatal to your dog's being. Apples contain a whole bunch of nutrients that can surely keep the vet away.
  • Pumpkin - While basic bitches obsess with Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the origin vegetable, well pumpkin, are good for your dog's digestive system, Just make sure to remove all the stems and leaves as pumpkin vine and leaves are not so pet friendly
  • Pineapple - This sweet treat is packed with nutrients that are good for the heart and is the perfect summer treat for your dog
  • Carrot - This is probably the only food in this list that is quite unpopular for dogs, in our house only 1 out of 6 dogs like this. However, carrots just like apples is an all natural, alternative to dentastix, as they contain a high amount of vitamin A and beta-carotene which helps not only the eyesight but also makes their teeth healthier
  • Oatmeal - Like peanut butter, oatmeal are all most added to every homemade dog treat recipes out there, rightfuly so, because it's rich in fiber. Go for all natural un flavored ones.
  • Rice - Rice is perfect to calm a dog's upset stomach, it's packed with nutrients such as protein and is easy to digest.
  • Yogurt - All natural plain yogurt that is, Yogurts with active bacteria can act as a probiotic and are good for your dog’s digestive system. We sometimes use this to ice a doggy cake. Althought it's still dairy, so make sure your dog is not lactose intolerant.


Dogs have a built in sense of what's harmful to them, but sometimes these senses can be idle, which leaves the dog's protection from harmful food in the hands of his or her owner. While we all know the basic, "chocolates and raisins are poisonous to dogs," there are plenty more food that can be harmful to your dog.

This list are not exhaustive, or not limited. There are dozens if not hundreds of food out there that are harmful for your dog. If you're unsure, please consult your vet.

  • Nuts and seeds
  • Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Coffee, and Cafine
  • Garlic
  • Grapes
  • Chocolates
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Avocado
  • Gum (Xylitol)
  • Citrus
  • Coconut and coconut oil
  • Chives
  • Salt
  • Yeast
  • Vegetable and fruit stems and leaves
  • Tea
  • Mustard

 Of course there are times when we slip up on guarding our dogs away from harmful food, as we can watch them 24/7 at all times. Don't fret, keep yourself calm. Once your dog comes in contact with any harmful food, it's best to call your vet right away. What the vet will do is, they will administer a medicine that will make your dog vomit.

But how will I know if my dog suffered food poisoning if I did not witness the act?

You can observe for the following symptoms;
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Restlessness
  • Increased urination
  • Tremors
  • Elevated or abnormal heart rate
  • Seizures
If your dog suffered from atleast 3 of those symptoms, take them to the vet immediately, because after your dog has seizures, (We're sorry to be the ones to tell you this but...) death comes afterwards

Dogs, like humans, have allergies too, the most common dog food allergy there is comes from milk and dairy products, but there are plenty more like the following:

  • Pork
  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Lamb
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Corn
  • Soy
  • Butter
And it's not limited only to those mentioned above. Dogs can have allergies from any specific food known to man. How to know if your dog's allergic? you might ask. Well it's better if you observe your pup, if he or she shows the following signs;

  • Chronic ear inflammation
  • Itching
  • Paw biting
  • Poor coat quality
  • Obsessive licking
Some dogs may have;
  • Skin rash
  • Hives
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Itchy rear end
  • Chronic gas
  • Vomiting
If your dog exhibits these symptoms, take them to the vet. The vet will test out all the food fed to your dog in the last 24hrs to see which one gave the reaction. 

Knowing what your dog is allergic to, can help in protecting your dog's health.
