  • NO! Well,not at my house anyways.But when they go(everyday) to Granma and Grandpa's house the rules are out the window.I hate to have the dog beg while I eat.
  • No, I won't allow it. That only encourages them to beg for human food and it causes health problems.
  • Only as snacks, such as a few french fries, or a spoon full of cereal in his bowl. He occasionally gets some of the meaty pieces of fat I trim off the meat, but not the pure fat. He eats everything that falls on the floor while I am fixing a meal.
  • Only two kinds of foods. Left over prime rib or filet mignon. She deserves the best and that's what I give her occasionally.
  • No, I generally try to avoid feeding my pets people XD
  • They highly approved of the most recent batch of meatballs.
  • My dog sometimes gets a bit of ham. She's also partial to a bit of banana. Really though, I don't like giving her human food, due to the fact dogs digestive systems are very different to a humans.
  • The only thing my cat eats in people food is spaghetti.
  • Our cat, Miss Tigger, loves plain yogurt..not the flavored sweet stuff, the original real thing..so we give her a tablespoon of it spread on a plate, which she licks up so fast it would make your head spin. Also, on occasion, when I open a pouch of tuna for Jim and me, we'll give her a teaspoon of it..she inhales that. Funny thing..after we give her tuna, she goes into the front bedroom, sprawls under the table in there, and conks out..sometimes for hours. It is so predictable..does tuna have L-tryptophan in it or something? :)

  • I have 4 hamsters (used to have 6 but some recently went to hamster heaven) and I give them a Friday night treat - usually something with protein like a piece of cheese, fish or meat. In between Fridays, I might give them a small piece of crust from toast with peanut butter on it (I don't eat this often, though) , some Cheerios (3), a couple of raisins or bran flakes. They also like small size dog biscuits - hamsters like hard crunchy things.

  • I give my dogs anything they want except the ones listed below to avoid. Items to avoid Reasons to avoid Baby food Can contain onion powder, which can be toxic to dogs. (Please see onion below.) Can also result in nutritional deficiencies, if fed in large amounts. Bones from fish, poultry, or other meat sources Can cause obstruction or laceration of the digestive system. Cat food Generally too high in protein and fats. Chocolate, coffee, tea, and other caffeine Contain caffeine, theobromine, or theophylline, which can be toxic and affect the heart and nervous systems. Citrus oil extracts Can cause vomiting. Fat trimmings Can cause pancreatitis. Grapes and raisins Contain an unknown toxin, which can damage the kidneys. Hops Unknown compound causes panting, increased heart rate, elevated temperature, seizures, and death. Human vitamin supplements containing iron Can damage the lining of the digestive system and be toxic to the other organs including the liver and kidneys. Large amounts of liver Can cause Vitamin A toxicity, which affects muscles and bones. Macadamia nuts Contain an unknown toxin, which can affect the digestive and nervous systems and muscle. Milk dogs and cats do not have sufficient amounts of the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose in milk. This can result in diarrhea. Lactose-free milk products are available for pets. Moldy or spoiled food, garbage Can contain multiple toxins causing vomiting and diarrhea and can also affect other organs. Mushrooms Can contain toxins, which may affect multiple systems in the body, cause shock, and result in death. Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) Contain sulfoxides and disulfides, which can damage red blood cells and cause anemia. Cats are more susceptible than dogs. Garlic is less toxic than onions. Persimmons Seeds can cause intestinal obstruction and enteritis. Pits from peaches and plums Can cause obstruction of the digestive tract. Potato, rhubarb, and tomato leaves; potato and tomato stems Contain oxalates, which can affect the digestive, nervous, and urinary systems. This is more of a problem in livestock. Raw eggs Contain an enzyme called avidin, which decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin). This can lead to skin and hair coat problems. Raw eggs may also contain Salmonella. Raw fish Can result in a thiamine (a B vitamin) deficiency leading to loss of appetite, seizures, and in severe cases, death. More common if raw fish is fed regularly. Salt If eaten in large quantities it may lead to electrolyte imbalances. String Can become trapped in the digestive system; called a "string foreign body." Yeast dough Can expand and produce gas in the digestive system, causing pain and possible rupture of the stomach or intestines. http://www.risingwoods.org/OURFAMILY/THEDOGS/knowntoxicfoodsfordogs.htm
