Have you wondered which human food your Samoyed can or can’t eat?
The truth is dogs have different metabolic systems than ours. This means that what’s safe for us may not be safe for our Samoyed. Therefore, for feeding our pets, we need to know what’s good for them. Below are the most common 37 fruits, vegetables & other snacks Samoyeds can (and can’t) eat.
List of fruits Samoyeds can or can’t eat
Wondering which fruits your Samoyed can eat or not? Here is a list of some common fruits your Samoyed can or can’t eat:
Yes, Samoyeds can eat apples.
Apples are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your Samoyed. They’re also low in protein and fat, making them the perfect snack for senior Samoyeds.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind before giving your Samoyed an apple. First of all, remove the seeds and core first. While these are fine for people to eat, they contain cyanide—and you don’t want your Samoyed getting any funny ideas! Also avoid processed apples like applesauce or apple pie due to added sugar.
Avocado is not safe for your Samoyed to consume.
Avocado fruit, pits, leaves, skin and the actual plant contain persin so these parts are potentially poisonous to your Samoyed.
However, there are some cases where avocado oil is safe in small amounts. A bit of the oil or butter from an avocado can be added to your Samoyed’s food occasionally, as long as they don’t have any other health problems.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat bananas.
Bananas are a low-calorie snack for Samoyeds in moderation. They are high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and copper. However, they also have a high sugar content, so bananas should be given as an occasional treat.
You should remove the banana peel before giving it to your Samoyed because it is hard for them to digest.
Avoid processed bananas like banana chips or banana puddings—these may contain added toxic ingredients.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat blackberries.
Blackberries are low in calories and sugar and are high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They’re also one of the few fruits that Samoyeds can eat without having to worry about their digestive tract being upset by the fruit’s acidity.
However, avoid processed blackberries like blackberry jam, jelly, ice cream, as they may contain harmful chemicals. Two blackberries a day per 10 pounds of body weight is a safe amount for your Samoyed to consume.
Yes! Blueberries are a great snack for your Samoyed. They’re high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help keep your pup happy, healthy, and full of energy.
But be careful: blueberries are also high in sugar, so feed them in moderation (4-5 blueberries per 10 pounds of body weight).
Blueberries can be fed frozen, fresh, dried or mashed—it’s up to you. Most pups will enjoy any form of blueberry.
Just avoid processed blueberries like blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt, blueberry pie and blueberry pancake because they may contain harmful chemicals that could harm your pooch.
Yes, a Samoyed can eat cantaloupe. Cantaloupe are low in calories but high in other nutrients, including fiber and moisture. However, they also contain sugar, so you should only give your Samoyed a small amount—the rinds and seeds can be choking hazards for Samoyeds.
Also, always remove the rinds and seeds before serving it to them as they can cause choking hazard and digestive distress.
Can Samoyeds eat cherries?
No, Samoyeds can’t eat cherries. Although the fleshy part around the seed is safe, the plant contains cyanide. Cyanide destroys cellular oxygen transport in your Samoyed. The symptoms of cyanide toxicity include dilated pupils, difficulty breathing, and a rapid pulse; if you see these symptoms, contact your vet immediately.
Can Samoyeds eat grapes?
The short answer is no, even a small amount of grapes can cause sudden kidney failure in your Samoyed. Grapes are very toxic to Samoyeds—even just one grape can cause kidney failure, so it’s important to keep your Samoyed away from all grapes.
Symptoms of grape poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy. If you see any of these symptoms in your Samoyed after they’ve eaten grapes, seek veterinary help immediately.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat mangoes. Mango contains four different vitamins: A, B6, C and E that are essential for the Samoyed’s body. It also contains fiber, which is important for a healthy digestive system. However, remove mango skin and pit, as they are harder to digest, and can cause choking hazards.
Also, processed mangoes like mango sorbet and mango popsicles should be avoided because they may contain harmful ingredients like added sugar or artificial colors. We recommend a one-quarter cup of fresh ripe mango once a week.
Can a Samoyed eat oranges?
Yes, Samoyeds can eat oranges in moderation, but only the fleshy part of the fruit. The peel, pith, skin and seeds must be removed before feeding to your Samoyed. Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C and potassium and fiber and moisture.
Give only 1-2 sections as an occasional treat to most Samoyeds.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat peaches. However, as with all foods, it’s important to make sure that you serve them in moderation and to remove the pit before serving it to your Samoyed, as it contains cyanide.
Peaches are high in fiber and vitamin A, so they’re a great addition to your pup’s diet if you want to give him a little extra nutritional boost.
Samoyeds can eat peaches cut up in small pieces or frozen into ice cubes. Just make sure there aren’t any pits!
Yes, Samoyeds can eat pears. Pears are a great snack because they’re high in copper, vitamins C and K, and fiber. Eating the fruit can reduce the risk of having a stroke by 50 percent! Just be sure to cut pears into bite-size chunks and remove the pit and seeds first, as the seeds contain traces of cyanide. Skip processed pears like canned pears as it may contain sugar syrups and other additives that aren’t good for your Samoyed.
One small slice is ok for most Samoyeds as pears contain sugar. But if your pup has diabetes or other health issues, consult a vet before feeding them any fruit—or any new food!
Yes, Samoyeds can eat pineapple.
It contains vitamins, minerals, and bromelain, which is an enzyme that helps digest protein. It also contains moisture, so it’s great for hydration.
The only part of the pineapple you should give your Samoyed is the soft inner fruit—there’s no need to feed them the spiky skin or hard inner core. Just remove these parts and give your pup 2/3 small bites of raw pineapple.
Remember to avoid processed pineapples like canned pineapple, pineapple cake because they may contain added harmful chemicals and preservatives.
Yes, pure pumpkin itself is a great choice and a very healthy snack for Samoyeds. Pumpkin helps with your Samoyed’s skin and coat, plus it’s great for digestion and can help remedy both diarrhea and constipation in your Samoyed. Never feed your Samoyed pumpkin pie mix. Canned pumpkin is ok for your Samoyed but make sure it’s 100% pumpkin.
Many pumpkin supplements and pumpkin pup treats are available on the market today. Amount varies with your Samoyed’s size and activity level, but start with a teaspoon per day.
Can Samoyeds eat strawberries?
Yes, Samoyeds can eat strawberries. The fruit contains vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants. Fresh and frozen strawberries have the same benefits but should be cut into small pieces before serving to avoid choking. Stems should be removed beforehand. We should avoid processed strawberries and those with seeds.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat watermelon. It’s a low-calorie treat that is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and lycopene—a compound that helps fight cancer.
The only part of a watermelon that’s safe and nutritious for Samoyeds is the flesh of the fruit. Cut it into small chunks to make it easier for your Samoyed to eat; remove any seeds, rinds, or skin before giving it to your Samoyed. Just half a cup of diced seedless and rind-free watermelon per 10 pounds of body weight is enough.
List of vegetable Samoyeds can or can’t eat
Wondering which vegetables your Samoyed can eat or not? Here is a list of some vegetables your Samoyed can or can’t eat:
Can Samoyeds eat broccoli? Yes! Broccoli is a nutritious vegetable that can be a healthy addition to your pup’s diet.
Broccoli contains Vitamin K, Vitamin C and minerals, so it’s great for preventing bone loss. It also contains fiber, which helps promote healthy digestion.
However, you should always cut broccoli into small pieces to avoid choking hazards. Offer 1/4 (0.25) cup of broccoli per 10 pounds of body weight of a pup.
Cabbage is a great addition to your pup’s diet. It is high in vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants and fiber. All colors of cabbage are safe for Samoyeds to eat, but red cabbage is the most nutritious.
To make sure it’s safe and healthy for your Samoyed, lightly cook or roast it before feeding it to them. Avoid adding oil or salt while cooking, because they can make your Samoyed sick if consumed in large quantities.
One bite of roasted cabbage per 10 pounds of body weight should be offered to your pup daily.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat carrots. In fact, they’re an excellent low calorie treat for your Samoyed!
Carrots are known to promote good health in humans, and Samoyeds are no exception. They contain vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber. Crushing on this orange veggie is also great for your Samoyed’s teeth, as it helps to clean their gums and keep them healthy. Raw, frozen or cooked carrots are all fine options—you just need to be sure not to feed too many raw ones at once since they’re hard for your Samoyed’s digestive system to process.
If you’re giving your pup a carrot cake, make sure it doesn’t include any harmful additives or preservatives. One or two baby carrots should be enough for an average sized pup.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat celery as a snack.
Celery is low in calories, which makes it an excellent treat for Samoyeds who need to lose weight. It also contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and high moisture content that can help keep your Samoyed hydrated.
Celery has been shown to have positive effects on digestion and bowel movements, while also aiding in the absorption of nutrients from other foods.
The most common way to feed celery to Samoyeds is as a treat or snack throughout the day. You can also use it as a training tool for your Samoyed by using it as a reward when your Samoyed does something correctly. You can also pair it up with other treats or add peanut butter or dip it in yogurt to make them more enticing.
If you’re going to feed your Samoyed celery, make sure they’re cut into bite-sized pieces so that they don’t choke on them. Start out with one or two pieces at first just to make sure your Samoyed likes them before feeding more later on down the road.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat cucumbers. Cucumbers are a safe and healthy snack for your pup.
Cucumbers are low in calories and contain vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, folate, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. They also contain minerals like copper and iron. If you feed your Samoyed organic cucumbers, you can even reap the benefits of phytochemicals that help freshen their breath.
Cucumber seed and peels or skin are safe as long as they are organic; however, avoid processed cucumbers like cucumber pickles, as they may contain harmful additives like onions, garlic, salt, and sugar.
One or two pieces of a cucumber should be enough for your Samoyed. If your Samoyed has health issues such as digestive problems, then consult with your vet before feeding them cucumbers.
Garlic is toxic to Samoyeds.
The sulfur compound in garlic, called N-propyl disulfide, causes hemolysis leading to anemia if eaten in significant quantities. Raw and cooked cloves and bulbs of garlic are toxic to your Samoyed. The toxic dose is 15 to 30 grams of garlic per kilogram of body weight.
If your Samoyed has ingested any amount of garlic, contact the vet immediately as this can lead to serious problems, including death.
Can Samoyeds eat onions? The short answer is no.
Onions contain a sulfur compound called N-propyl disulfide, which can lead to hemolysis and anemia in Samoyeds. A toxic dose is 15 gm/kg of the body weight of your Samoyed. This means that if your Samoyed weighs 15 kg, he would need to eat about 225 grams of onion for it to be toxic.
Every type of onion is bad for Samoyeds—red, white, yellow, or any other kind you might find at the store (including dehydrated). And not just the flesh—the ring, leaves, powder and juice are also harmful for your Samoyed too.
Contact your vet if you think your Samoyed has eaten onions.
If you’re looking for a low-calorie treat for your Samoyed, zucchini might be just the thing. It’s full of vitamins and antioxidants and has high amounts of fiber and moisture. Plain raw, steamed, or cooked zucchini is safe for Samoyeds to eat. However, raw zucchini provides more Vitamin A than cooked ones, so if you have a small Samoyed that needs to watch their intake of Vitamin A (like one who is pregnant) then it’s best to stick with cooked zucchini.
The amount of zucchini you give your Samoyed depends on the size of your Samoyed—it’s recommended that you start with just one or two small bites at first.
List of some other snacks Samoyeds can or can’t eat
Wondering which snacks your Samoyed can eat or not? Here is a list of some snacks your Samoyed can or can’t eat:
No, your Samoyed should not eat bacon. Bacon is an incredibly rich and fatty food with a high salt content. It can prove to be too much for a Samoyed’s stomach to handle, especially if they eat large amounts of it.
Eating a large amount can cause pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas that results in pain and damage to this vital organ.
However, giving your Samoyed small amounts of cooked bacon infrequently should not cause mischief.
Samoyeds love beef.
Beef is a great source of protein and many important vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc and vitamin B12. It also provides your Samoyed with selenium and phosphorus, which are important for your Samoyed’s growth and development.
So if you’re thinking about feeding your Samoyed some beef, there are plenty of ways to do it safely: Cooked, unseasoned lean beef is safe for Samoyeds in small amounts unless your Samoyed is allergic to beef. You can also give your Samoyed ground beef or even leaner cuts of steak (like round cuts) in moderation as long as they’re not cooked with excess salt or spices.
You should also avoid cooked bones—because they can cause damage to the esophagus or intestines if swallowed whole or chewed up by your pup. But larger raw bones can be a fun chew toy! Just make sure they’ve been cleaned first so they don’t have any germs on them that could make your pup sick.
For a 20-pound pooch, one cup of kibble or 0.3 pound of ground beef is enough if you go for a raw diet.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat bread provided your Samoyed is not allergic to it. However, only plain white and wheat bread is safe for Samoyeds to eat. Avoid processed bread like bread with yeast. Bread doesn’t provide that much nutrients in your Samoyed, so offer them in moderation. A crust is fine, but a whole slice is too much for your Samoyed. Too much bread can cause digestive problems or other health issues for your pet.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat cheese. But just like humans, what types of cheese Samoyeds can eat is a bit more limited than you might think.
Cheese contains vitamins, fatty acids, proteins and other nutrients that are good for your Samoyed’s health. It also contains cheese fat, which is good for their coat and skin. The main thing to be careful about when feeding your Samoyed cheese is the type of cheese they’re eating.
Mozzarella, cottage, swiss, cheddar are all safe options for a small amount of cheese (a few small bites). Stay away from spicy cheeses like blue cheese or goat cheese because they could upset your Samoyed’s stomach. Cottage cheese is also a safer option, but it can cause diarrhea if your Samoyed eats too much of it at once.
How much? How much should you feed them? That depends on their size: a few small bites can be a great training tool for your puppy.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat chicken. Boneless, cooked breast meat is the best choice for your pet, as it contains protein, omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Avoid chicken skin as it contains a high amount of fat that can cause pancreatitis in Samoyeds.
The amount of chicken you feed your Samoyed depends on the size of the Samoyed but give 1/8 to 1/6 cup of meat protein per 10 pounds of body weight per day if your Samoyed is on a raw meat diet.
Can Samoyeds eat chocolate? The answer is no.
Theobromine and caffeine are both toxic to Samoyeds, and we can find them in many chocolates. The darker the chocolate, the more dangerous it is for your pup. Theobromine is a stimulant that affects the heart and nervous system, while caffeine can cause vomiting, diarrhea, increased thirst, restlessness, tremors or seizures.
The amount of theobromine and caffeine that would kill a Samoyed varies depending on the weight of your Samoyed, but it’s safe to say that even one bite could be lethal! If you suspect your Samoyed has eaten any chocolate at all, contact your vet immediately.
Yes, your Samoyed can eat eggs. Eggs are a good source of protein, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. They’re even good for humans!
As long as you cook your eggs well (so they’re not raw) and that they’re made with no harmful ingredients like sugar or salt, eating eggs is fine for Samoyeds.
Eggshells are fine as long as you grind them up into small pieces or otherwise make them small enough so there are no sharp edges that could hurt your Samoyed’s mouth; eating whole eggshells can cause intestinal blockage.
Yes, but not all fish is safe for your Samoyed to eat.
Smaller, younger, wild-caught, shorter-lived species like salmon, shrimp and tilapia are safe for your Samoyed. These fish are easy to digest and they contain healthy omega fatty acids.
But avoid longer-lived fish species like tuna, shark and swordfish as they can contain heavy metals like mercury.
Also, be sure to clean them properly before feeding them to your Samoyed by deboning them or removing the skin first, then cooking them in an oven or cooking pan with no harmful additives on low heat for about 15 minutes until they’re fully cooked through. Then feed only one or two servings per week in small controlled amounts.
Can Samoyeds eat ice cream?
The answer is NO. Ice cream contains high amounts of dairy products and sugar, which are both harmful to your Samoyed. Symptoms of ice cream toxicity include vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst, lethargy, and if you suspect your Samoyed has eaten ice cream, seek veterinary help immediately.
Ice cream lollies, ice cream cones, Oreo ice cream, McDonald’s ice cream, vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream are all unsafe for Samoyeds to eat.
Samoyeds can eat peanut butter, but you’ll want to be careful about how much.
Peanut butter is mostly fat, which is great for your pup’s health in moderation. It also provides protein and vitamins. However, you want to make sure it’s pup-safe without xylitol or chocolate—and avoid the peanut butter pretzels because they contain three times more sodium than regular peanut butter sticks.
Start with a half teaspoon per day, then increase from there based on your pup’s size and activity level.
Can Samoyeds eat popcorn?
The short answer is yes. Plain, air-popped popcorn is safe for Samoyeds to eat in small quantities as an occasional treat. Popped corn kernels actually contain several minerals important to Samoyeds, like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc, along with fiber and trace amounts of vitamins.
However, there are some precautions you should take when feeding your Samoyed popcorn. Avoid processed popcorn like movie theater popcorn or microwaveable popcorn—the salt and chemicals added to these snacks can be harmful to your Samoyed’s health and even cause damage to their kidneys! Also, un-popped or partially popped kernels can be a choking hazard and may even cause damage to your Samoyed’s teeth.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat turkey! In fact, turkey is a great source of protein, fatty acids and minerals.
Turkey breast meat is the best option for your Samoyed. It provides more nutrients than dark meat and is less likely to cause GI upset or pancreatitis than dark meat.
However, avoid giving your Samoyed any type of processed turkey because it may contain harmful preservatives.
You should feed your Samoyed 20 grams of white meat turkey or 15 grams of dark meat turkey per 12 pounds body weight daily in two or three meals.
Yes, Samoyeds can eat yogurt. Plain yogurt is a perfectly acceptable snack for Samoyeds, but not all yogurt is safe for them to eat. Yogurt containing artificial sweeteners or added sugar may cause digestive upset in your Samoyed.
Plain yogurt is the best choice for your Samoyed. If your Samoyed can digest it, the active bacteria in yogurt can help strengthen the digestive system by increasing good bacteria and reducing bad bacteria in your Samoyed’s system.
One teaspoon of plain yogurt a day is fine for most Samoyeds, but check with your vet before feeding it to your Samoyed regularly.
