Dog-Friendly Easter Snacks

At The Family Puppy, we know your pup is a part of your family - and you want to ensure they are included in the Easter celebration! However, it's essential to remember that not all Easter foods are safe for dogs. In fact, some of the foods we love can be harmful or even toxic to our pups. But don't worry; with some know-how, we can ensure our furry friends stay safe and happy this Easter season.

First, let's remember that puppies and dogs have different dietary needs than humans. While many human foods are perfectly fine for dogs to eat in small amounts, some foods are harmful and should never be fed to our furry friends. These include chocolate, raisins, grapes, and onions, which can be toxic to dogs and cause serious health problems - or worse. Also, any meats with excessive salt, seasonings, onions or garlic should be avoided. Here are a few more foods the experts at The Family Puppy suggest avoid feeding your pup:

Unsafe Easter Foods for Dogs:

  • Cakes
  • Cookies
  • Chocolate
  • Deviled Egs
  • Alcohol
  • Fatty or seasoned meats

While some main Easter menu items are off the list, plenty of delicious Easter foods are safe for our pups to enjoy! Cooked meats like turkey, chicken, and pork are great options for occasional treats, but be sure to remove any bones, excess fat, or skin, and avoid using any seasonings or sauces that contain excessive salt, onions or garlic. Carrots, green beans, and sweet potatoes are all healthy options that dogs tend to love.

Safe Easter Foods for Dogs

  • Unseasoned, cooked meats like turkey, chicken, and pork
  • Cooked, plain eggs
  • Plain cooked or raw green beans
  • Raw carrots
  • Fresh or frozen peas
  • Cooked plain sweet potato, skin removed

If you're looking for a special Easter treat for your furry friend, there are plenty of dog-friendly options to choose from! Many pet stores sell Easter-themed dog treats that are safe and delicious. Alternatively, you can easily make your own dog treats using simple, dog-friendly ingredients like peanut butter, oats, and pumpkin. Just remember, even safe foods should be fed to dogs in moderation. Too much of any food can upset your puppy's stomach and lead to digestive issues like diarrhea or vomiting.

By keeping these tips in mind, we can ensure that our furry friends have a safe and happy Easter season, filled with yummy dog-friendly Easter treats and lots of love. So go ahead and enjoy the holiday feast with your furry friend right by your side!
