Whats the Strangest Food Your Dog Eats ?

Ask a Question

I spotted this video of a husky dog eating raw carrots

Then i got to thinking what do other peoples pets eat that are not part of their normal diet

Our dog will eat almost anything , but does turn her nose up to eating lettuce

Obviously we never give her pork or anything that is poisonous to their diet

What is the most unusual food you give yours ?

My old dog used to love courgette. He’d come and pester me every time I was cooking if I had courgette out. Otherwise he wasn’t too bothered what I was cooking. My other dog hates it though!

telmel It’s good when they prefer fruit and veg - cheaper than shop bought treats too!

Just be careful which fruits and veg you give T, some are poisonous to dogs, for example the pips from apples are, i always remove them before giving to our girl

The same with grapes, never give them to dogs

telmel yea I know what fruits and vegetables are safe for dogs to eat, but it is surprising how many people do not know that grapes raisins and chocolate are poisonous for dogs as well as onions

telmel The pips from apples poses no real danger to dogs. It would take the pips from approx 200 apples to cause any problem in a medium sized dog furthermore the pips would need to be ground up (by chewing) to release the minute amounts of cyanide, Dogs just swallow the pips.

davidstockport Thanks D

I would just prefer she doesn't swallows any even if the cyanide is minute just incase of a allergic reaction to it

My dog will eat most things including other animals droppings! But something many animals will not eat is tomatoes. The list for foods not to give dogs is very long and surprising. I tend to feed my dog only dog food now and occasionally freshly cooked chicken.

This was posted in the window of our vets. It’s the hidden ingredients like xylitol in things like peanut butter and ice cream which most people aren’t aware are poisonous

I have a Siberian Husky and when out walking in the autumn, she picks the blackberries from wild bushes. Might be a breed instinct. Really not sure!

We have to be careful with our dog as he has a disorder which nearly killed him before we knew what was going on. So now only allowed his normal dried food or his tins - but blended / watered down into a soup. Before that though his favourite was cheese. If he was asleep on the bed upstairs - if you got the cheese out of the fridge he was down like a shot. Even if still sealed in the packet he knew. You could get other stuff out of the fridge an he wouldn't bother.

Nina stole a ham and cheese breakfast off the table when she was a pup, but thats what you get not taking notice of the chair being pulled out from under the table, her nickname now is lady ham , another two favourite foods of hers

My dog is obsessed with cheese too, a friend told me to try using small pieces when puppy training and she has loved it ever since.

Many years ago when I stayed with a family in Vietnam, their little shih tzu dog had a taste for tangerines! I mean, it’s probably not the strangest thing for a dog to eat, but I had never seen a dog enjoy so much vitamin c

My old basset house used to eat anything including used cotton wool balls, peach stones. Unfortunately one year while we were on holiday she ate some acorns and died. Sorry to upset you all reading this.
