Can My Dog Eat Eggs? 5 Human Foods That Are Safe To Share With Your Dog

Many of the foods we eat may not be suitable for sharing with our canine friends but owners are often left wondering which foods are suitable to safely share.

Five foods that can safely be shared are shown below, along with the benefits of sharing these more typically human foods with your dog.

Green Beans

Green beans contain both vitamin C and vitamin K and are also very low in calories which means they are a healthy alternative snack,this is especially so if the dog concerned tends toward being overweight.

Many dogs enjoy green beans even in frozen form and by replacing a little of your dog's regular food with this snack you can offer your canine friend a healthy option at feeding time.


Eggs can be used as an addition to your dogs feeding routine but they must be cooked and not eaten raw or dried as, eaten uncooked, eggs may cause a nutritional problem known as biotin deficiency.

Eggs are a rich source of protein and also contain vitamin D, riboflavin and selenium which are all good for a dog's development.

Cooked eggs, in moderation, provide a healthy alternative snack for dogs.


Apples can be a healthy addition to a dog's diet. Apples contain calcium and fibre as well as the vitamins A, C and K which will all contribute to canine good health. It has been widely noted that apple pips contain cyanide and, in large accumulated quantities, may prove harmful. Good advice would be to remove the core which contains the pips and cut apples into slices as this also avoids the risk of a choking hazard.

Cooked Salmon

Salmon is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids and when cooked and offered as a snack can provide a healthy addition to your dog's diet. Omega 3 fatty acids help to keep a canine coat glossy and shiny whilst also positively boosting their immune system.

As with eggs, always make sure that the salmon that you offer your pet has been cooked thoroughly


Carrots are another vegetable that can safely given as a supplementary feed. Like green beans, carrots are low in calories and full of vitamins and provide an added benefit of being good for your pet's teeth.

It should be noted that the foods highlighted as safe for dog should only be added in moderation and as a supplement to your pets regular nutritionally balanced diet.
