Healthy Treats You CAN Share with Your Pets

Healthy Treats You CAN Share with Pets

“Don’t feed them people food!” You hear it all the time. Right? But are there people foods you can enjoy with your pet while also maintaining a healthy diet? Absolutely. (Note: Always check with your Veterinarian about your pet’s specific allergies or limitations). Remember, just because they can eat them doesn’t mean they will…they’re as picky as people sometimes. Also, quantity matters. Just because they can (or will) eat something listed, doesn’t mean portion control isn’t important.
