Are table scraps bad for dogs?

yes table scraps are bad for dog! for one they might be allergic to something in the food. for the second reason it will make them over weight which can cause heart deasise. ANSWER #2 You can feed some human food, I'm talking about a healthy pet, not a puppy or sick dog. Cooked green vegetables in moderation added to their food, no corn, pieces of beef, chicken, turkey, no bones !! Breads sparingly, cooked oatmeal, cooked white rice, cooked brown rice, potatoes are ok as long as they are not loaded up with butter or sour cream. Potatoes are ok, with the exception: the potatoe family you have to watch for the sugar content, especially if your pet is a diabetic. No sugar coated items, no donuts, cookies etc, these will all cause problems if not now, it will as time passes. No mustard, ketchup, or mayo, miracle whip, no lunchmeats unless they are sugar free. I think its better to add some good human food to dog food especially the dry dog foods, but remember to feed less dogfood when you use human food.
