Foods Dog Can Have at Your Labor Day Cookout

Labor Day = play day!By Lyndsay Marvin

It’s officially Labor Day Weekend! Labor Day is often associated with the end of summer, which is a bummer, but also a time for amazing cookouts, which is great! If you’re anything like us, you’re going to bring your dogs to your cookouts and gatherings. Dogs make everything better, especially when you have a plate of food that you can’t quite finish. They’re the best dishwashers! Since your dog is going to be surrounded by delicious food you and your friends/family are cooking,

Here’s a list of foods dogs can eat (within moderation of course).

  • Eggs (fully cooked)
  • Turkey
  • Chicken
  • Cheese (in moderation)
  • Shrimp
  • Peanut butter (without xylitol)
  • Popcorn (okay in moderation; always unsalted, unbuttered, plain air-popped)
  • Pork/Ham
  • Corn
  • Shrimp
  • Bread (small amounts)
  • Plain yogurt
  • Tuna (in moderation)
  • Honey
  • Salmon
  • Coconut
  • Peanuts
  • Cashews

Fruits and Veggies dogs can have:

  • ApplesWaiting for something to drop!
  • Bananas (as a treat only; bananas are high in sugar)
  • Watermelon (no rinds or seeds)
  • Oranges (peels aren’t toxic, but they’re rough on dogs’ digestion, so don’t feed)
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries (less than one cup)
  • Mangoes (remove the pit)
  • Blueberries
  • Peaches (fresh, not canned; cut up)
  • Pears (without pits or seeds)
  • Carrots
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Potatoes (fully cooked)
  • Broccoli (very small amounts)
  • Celery (freshens breath, too!)
  • Cucumbers

Of course, most people foods should be in moderation only. Hopefully this list gives you an idea of what Fido can and cannot eat, so you’ll both have a safe and happy Labor Day!

Don't be sad, baby!


There are many joys bringing home a new puppy though with those joys there are also terrors that come with having a new pet…one being teething.Don't be sad, baby!

Though mainly seen in puppies, both kittens and puppies can go through a teething phase, much like human infants. During this time the youngster begins to lose her baby teeth a lot like a human child. That’s when an increase kittens may begin gnawing on her owners and puppies may look for a chair or shoe to test their teeth.

The best thing to do is to get rubber bones or any other appropriate toy to redirect the chewing, says Dr. Camille Telleen of All Creatures Small Veterinary Clinic. There are also toys you can put in the freezer like the ones human infants use when they are teething.

“I have actually been called out for an emergency because a pet owner saw their puppy was bleeding in the mouth. It ended up being because of losing a baby tooth,” Telleen says.

Other remedies to help sooth your pet's aching gums include letting your puppy chew on an ice cube or massaging her gums.

Fear not pet owners; Dr. Telleen assures us the teething phase normally is done by 6 months. By that time the animal will have grown all of her adult teeth.
