Foods That Dogs Can Eat on Christmas

1. Potatoes

Dogs can eat cooked potatoes and sweet potatoes. Your dog can also enjoy mashed potatoes before you add butter, milk, and seasonings.

2. Turkey

Your dog will be thrilled to munch on a piece of turkey during Christmas dinner. Turkey is a safe treat for dogs to eat, but it should be unseasoned.

3. Cranberries

Cranberries are a tart treat that you can give to your dog. If you’re preparing cranberry sauce from scratch, you can set aside a small, unsweetened portion for your dog.

4. Green Beans

For dogs, green beans are a healthy treat. They are rich in numerous critical vitamins and minerals, including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin A, and vitamin K.

5. Broth

Dogs can eat broths that contain carrots, celery, rosemary, and thyme. They can also eat very small portions of peppercorns, but some may experience an upset stomach

6. Carrots

Carrots are a nutritious and popular snack amongst dogs. Raw or cooked, they can be served to dogs, but many of them enjoy the crunch of a raw carrot stick.

7. Eggs

A common element in many meals are eggs. Therefore, you can set aside a cooked egg for your dog when baking a batch of homemade cookies or dinner rolls.

8. Cheese

Some dogs may safely eat cheese, but they should only be given small quantities. Cheese doesn’t really have many health benefits, and it’s high in fat.

9. Dog-Friendly Gingerbread Cookies

Dogs can safely eat ginger, so if baking cookies is a family tradition, your dog can participate in this activity. 

10. Pumpkin

Another vegetable that dogs can eat without getting sick is pumpkin. It's an excellent treat for overweight dogs because it's high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and low in calories.
