Foods Pugs Can and Can't Eat? The Ultimate Food Guide for Dogs

Imagine these scenarios: You're in the kitchen making food, your pug is underfoot waiting for a dropped crumb. You're in the yard, your pug is eating rabbit poo. You're on a walk, your pug is sniffing for sidewalk sandwiches. You just made two dozen chocolate chip cookies, your pug is looking to eat the whole batch in one sitting despite the fact they are essentially poison. Sound familiar?

As we pug owners know, there are no limits to what our pugs put in their mouths. These babies are vacuum cleaners! They would eat all of the food on the list, even the 'can't' category. Our goal is to help you avoid the emergency vet and keep your pug safe and healthy.

We have put together the ultimate list of foods your dogs can and can't eat. This extensive list covers most of the foodstuffs in the human diet and then some. Our four categories flow from safe to toxic. Let's break these down one by one and puzzle out that ever burning question: Can my pug eat that?

Yes! My Pug Can Eat That

The Can list is focused on the healthy side of food inhalation. They can eat a lot more, but we have to draw the line somewhere. The human palate is quite vast, and your pugs should not be for the sake of preventing gooey bellies, squirty plops, and chubby waistlines. Nobody in the human or pug world wants that. We always want to be summer bod ready and feeling our best!

My Pug Can Eat a Little of That

Everything in moderation. While the following foods are more-or-less safe for your pug, we still say 'just one bite.'

My Pug Probably Shouldn't Eat That

Oops, you drop a couple Cheerios or a slice of ham on the floor and your pug gobbles it up vacuum style before you can react. Don't fret, but try your hardest to avoid the following foods from getting into your pug's mouth.

My Pug Should Definitely Not Eat That

Just say no. The foods in the NOPE category are just that, big no no's. These foods are poison to your pug's digestive system. If they happen to eat anything on this list, particularly the items on the infographic marked with a yellow warning symbol, immediate veterinary action should be taken. While much of it depends on how much was ingested, these foods need to be taken seriously. Avoid them at all costs because the vet bill could be great, and the outcome for your pug, not so great.

Stick To Food Specifically Made for Dogs

Our personal belief, stick to their regular diet of high quality, nutrient-rich dog foods available at your local pet store or through your vet. Do your research, find the most reputable brands, and feed them a well-balanced, two or three small meals-a-day diet. This helps your pug maintain a healthy weight and ensures they are getting all of the proper nutrients their body needs. They will totally be happy and won't even know what they're missing. Of course, treaties are a MUST! But stick with the dog-specific food and treats to avoid food allergies, stomach upset, or worse, an emergency trip to the vet.

The following is the perfect visual for any dog owner! Save it to your phone, print it out and tape it to your fridge, show your babysitters, whatever it takes to keep those pug tummies in the right place.
