A lot of people have the habit of feeding their dogs their own leftover food. Feeding your dog your own leftover food can be totally fine. However, if the leftover food consist of something a dog cannot eat, it can be dangerous as well. That’s why it is essential that every dog owner knows what dogs can and cannot eat.

The following is a list of human foods dog can and cannot eat.

While it might be okay for dogs to eat a particular human food, there can be some special conditions involved.
