    I feed my two dogs table food as well and find they have more energy and seem much more content. It is not their main source of food, though, but after reading some of the articles on the site, maybe it should be. They love fruits and vegetables so it helps. I do have to ask about garlic and avocado. I know the pit of an avocado (the inside) is toxic, but my vet actually told me it isn’t really bad for them, is just higher in fat. I have seen other sites say the same thing. Also, I can’t seem to get a clear answer on garlic. Some says its ok, and some says its not. I have asked two different vets about this, and they aren’t quite sure either. Just wondering if you had more insite. Thanks!

      I’m not certain about avocado – most say that it is toxic. With garlic, there is mixed science on it. Some say it is toxic (cousin of the onion which is toxic), others say it is not in smaller doses. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. I play on the side of caution – avoid them both.

        Thank you for the reply. I do tend avoid them just to make sure. There are a lot of other good foods to feed them. 🙂
