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!

Popular buy one, give one brand expands to cat food

DES MOINES, Iowa – The American Pet Products Association says there are more than 95 million owned cats in the United States, and cats now outpace dogs as the most popular family pet, with an average of 2.1 cats per household. Recognizing the importance of cats in daily life, BOGO Bowl is adding cat food to its line of premium, healthy buy one, give one pet food products to ensure all pets have healthy, quality food.

“We believe all pets need healthy food made with select simple, quality ingredients, whether their bowls are in cozy kitchens or caring shelters,” said Sara Henderson, Chief Foodie of BOGO Bowl. “We know pet lovers consider their animal companions family, and care about the health and wellbeing of animals in shelters and rescues. If they can provide high-quality, all natural nutrition to their own pet, and help an at-risk animal in the community at the same time, with no extra effort or cost, they’re all in.”

Chicken formula adult cat food is available October 18, with Kitten and Healthy Weight Adult cat formulas joining the lineup in early November. The company is also adding Grain Free Duck & Buffalo Meal formula to its list of super-premium dog foods in December.

Each purchase of BOGO Bowl food provides a matching bag of the same size and formula to a pet food pantry, shelter, rescue or Meals-On-Wheels companion program. The company has given more than 126,000 bowls to date and that number increases daily.

BOGO Bowl pet food uses select ingredients for healthy pets. Formulas contain no corn, wheat, soy, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. The first ingredient is always high-quality chicken, salmon or lamb meal and all ingredients except the New Zealand lamb are from the United States. To make it easy to do good both at home and in shelters, BOGO Bowl offers a personalized subscription service to ensure family pets never run out of food, and purchases over $44 include free shipping.

BOGO Bowl is available online at www.BOGOBowl.com or through a growing list of select independent pet food retailers.
