Here are some good tips on the do’s and don’t of human food for dogs: 1. Almonds are nontoxic, however, they can tear the windpipe and esophagus. 2. Apples are good for dogs. They contain vitamin A and C as well as fiber. Apples are great for senior dogs. But remember to remove all seeds and core before feeding them to your dog.
