Do you ever feed your dog “people food”?
There seems to be an ongoing debate about whether dogs should be fed people food or solely dog food. However, some people food ingredients are acceptable for your furry friend and even have health benefits. Here are some doggie-approved ingredients that are used in five dog treat recipes your pooch will love (tip: check with your vet before giving your pup any people food to ensure they do not have any food allergies).
Bananas: Bananas are a great source of potassium. A good serving size for dogs is one inch of a banana.
Blueberries: This fruit gives dogs a dose of zinc, iron, antioxidants and vitamins A, E and C.
Eggs: Cooked eggs are great for dogs with tummy issues as they are easy to digest and provide your dog with some of the protein they need.
Flax Seed: These seeds contain powerful fatty acids called Omega-3s, which help keep your pup’s coat healthy and shiny. You can give your dog flax in the form of seeds or oil.
Peanut Butter: This tasty treat is good for dogs because it contains protein, healthy fats and vitamins B and E.
Pumpkin: This nutrient-packed ingredient is great for pups with digestive problems because it contains fiber. It is also a great source of vitamin A, zinc, beta-carotene and iron.

Since dogs can be a distraction while driving, make sure you’re covered with an auto insurance policy before you travel, just in case an accident occurs. Check out some auto insurance quotes online to make sure you get the coverage you need, so you can enjoy the tail-wagging fun your dog and the open road will bring.
