Therefore, we have compiled a list of five food items that are safe for dog consumption and can be shared with your dog without any fear. It goes without saying that you should keep an eye for any stomach or any such outcomes after introducing your dog to the following mentioned food items as not all dogs are okay with a sudden change in their menu.

1. Pasta

Who doesn’t like Pasta? You will find it extremely hard to find someone who does not like Pasta, and the same goes for dogs. Fortunately, a bowl of Pasta that is well-cooked and devoid of any hard sauce is a healthy treat for your canine friend. Pasta is a rich source of carbohydrates which is good news for your dog. Although owners should take caution as too much Pasta can make your pooch obese.

2. Vegetables

We know what you are thinking, how can veggies be suitable for dogs who are full-on carnivores.
