Hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, peanuts, pistachios, chestnuts and cashew nuts can in principle also be eaten by dogs.

Raw eggs are only conditionally compatible for our fur noses. Egg white in particular contains the substance avidin, which binds the substance biotin, which is an important coenzyme in dogs' fat metabolism.

However, boiled eggs are very healthy for dogs because the substance is neutralized when heated.

Even with some Herbs you should do some research before giving these to your dog's bowl. The supposedly healthy herbs can quickly become dangerous for pregnant bitches and four-legged friends with previous illnesses (e.g. epilepsy).

What meat are dogs not allowed to eat?

Even though dogs are carnivores, there is one type of meat that you should definitely avoid feeding. Raw pork can be contaminated with the Aujeszky virus, which can be transmitted to four-legged friends via the stomach. This triggers what is known as pseudo anger, which is fatal in all cases. The Aujeszky virus is a herpes virus that causes inflammation in the nerves and in the Gehrin. This generally applies to raw pork and wild boar meat.

When heated, the virus's pathogen is killed at temperatures above 60 ° C. So you can feed boiled pork.

Even if there has not been a case of pseudo anger since 2004, you should exercise caution. This disease is very aggressive and leads to the excruciating death of the dog within about two days. There is no cure, so better not to take that risk.

On too raw poultry meat should be avoided, as this may contain salmonella. However, if you cook chicken or turkey meat well, your fur nose can eat it without hesitation. However, you should remove the bones beforehand. Poultry bones can splinter when they are eaten and cause gastrointestinal injuries. Cooked poultry bones are even more porous, so that the risk of splintering increases even further.

With our dry food, your four-legged friend will be provided with all the important nutrients:

The quantity makes the poison

Most of the fruits and vegetables listed depend on the quantity. Especially with puppies, old or sick dogs, you should be very careful and not get involved in experiments. The risk of poisoning varies from individual to individual. Four-legged friends with Allergies or a sensitive stomach can react faster and more violently than healthy dogs. But don't take any chances. There are so many healthy fruits and vegetables that you can safely feed them. Avoid foods that are potentially toxic to your furry friend.

Even dogs that are sick or under chronic complaints should not be fed experimental foods. An organism that is already burdened can generally handle additional toxins more difficult and will likely react faster and more violently.

As a general rule, your dog should be adequately supplied with all the essential nutrients with a high-quality and balanced dog food. You do not have to feed him supposedly healthy foods so that he is well nourished.


There are so many foods that are healthy for dogs. However, you should inquire beforehand exactly what is not tolerable for your four-legged friend and what can possibly harm him. Even if you mean it well and like to share your food with your furry friend, you're not always doing him a favor. If you want your dog to live healthy and happy for a long time, watch what he gets to eat.
