Fortunately, very few foods commonly consumed by people are poisonous
to dogs.  The most important foods NOT to feed your dog are
chocolate and ***; they can lead to disastrous health effects, including
death.

 In addition:

-- dogs do not assimilate raw starch; it must be cooked to
   provide nutrition

-- raw meat can contain harmful parasites

-- about 80% of all dogs are allergic to cow's milk, though many
   dogs can eat other dairy products with no problems (cheese, etc)

-- as with people, overfeeding of any food can result in serious health
   problems for dogs resulting from obesity.

Whether the dog's diet consists of commercial food, so-called "human" food,
or both, the most important nutritional principle is to provide
a balanced diet that meets canine nutritional needs.

Canine nutrition has been researched for at least half a century.
While there is always room for improvement, science has provided
a pretty good basic understanding of the nutrients needed by
dogs and in what ratios they are required.
