Will ham hurt dogs?
Ham isn't dangerous for dogs, but it doesn't offer optimum nutritional value for them, either.
It's high in fat and sodium, which can be harmful to dogs in large quantities, but a few bites of Ham as a rare treat shouldn't harm your dog.
Keep in mind that some dogs are sensitive to fatty foods.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
