BBQ Safe Foods for Pets

As the temperatures rise and the days grow longer, the allure of firing up the grill and enjoying outdoor gatherings with friends and family is inevitable.  But amidst the excitement of sizzling steaks and savory burgers, let's not forget about our furry companions eagerly eyeing our feast. To ensure their safety and happiness, it's crucial to offer BBQ-safe foods for pets.


Grilled Meat

When treating your pets to a taste of summer grilling, opt for lean, well-cooked meats free from seasonings like garlic and onions, which can be harmful to our four-legged friends. Instead, serve up plain, unseasoned meat in bite-sized pieces for easy consumption.

Fresh Fruits and Veggies

Keep your pets cool and hydrated with refreshing fruits and vegetables. Watermelon, apples(without the seeds), blueberries, and carrots make excellent snacks for dogs, while cats may enjoy small pieces of cucumber or cantaloupe. These natural treats are packed with vitamins and minerals, making them a healthy addition to your pet’s diet. If you’re not sure whether the fruit is pet friendly other than the ones mentioned previously, a quick google search should answer your questions! 

Pet-Friendly BBQ Side Dishes

When preparing side dishes for your BBQ, consider options that are safe for your pets to enjoy. Plain cooked sweet potatoes, green beans, and plain rice or pasta can be shared with your furry friends in moderation. Be sure to avoid adding any seasoning or sauces that may upset their stomachs. 

Frozen Treats

Beat the heat with homemade frozen treats for your pets. Freeze small portions of plain yogurt, peanut butter(without xylitol), or mashed banana in ice cube trays for a refreshing snack. You can also blend fresh fruits like strawberries with water and freeze them into popsicle molds for a cool summer treat. 

If you don’t want to add another DIY project to your list, you can also consider picking up some pet-friendly frozen treats from the store, such as a frozen yogurt or pre-made popsicles. Just be sure to check the ingredients to ensure they’re safe for your furry friends. 

As a general rule of thumb, always opt for plain, unseasoned foods without any added spices or flavorings. Avoid ingredients like garlic, onions, and excessive salt, as these can be harmful to pets. Additionally, be mindful of the portion sizes and avoid overfeeding, as too much of a good thing can lead to digestive upset.
