Bananas are low in cholesterol and calories and contain several nutrients. When it comes to snacking, offer your pup smaller, easily digestible pieces and keep the banana peel out of paw’s reach.

Can my dog eat: popcorn

This low-fat, low-calorie treat can be shared with pups in small portions — just as long as it’s plain and fully popped.

Note that unpopped kernels are choking hazards. They can get stuck in dogs’ teeth and irritate their throat.

(Even though popcorn is generally safe for dogs, always consult your vet before introducing a new food to their diet.)

Always consult your vet before introducing your pet to new foods.

Not all “safe” foods are good for your dog to eat as is — make sure each bite is appropriately prepared (pay attention to cooking instructions, seasonings and ingredients) before treating your pup.

If at any point your dog negatively reacts to something they’ve eaten, call your vet or poison control immediately.

Don’t rely on these foods to improve your dog’s health without your vet’s guidance.
