It's so important to know what foods are safe to feed your Miniature Schnauzer. Especially if you prepare your Schnauzer home-cooked meals or like to slip them a piece of your food every now and then. When preparing you dog's meals always read the ingredients posted on the product label. Many foods contain other ingredients that might not be safe for your Schnauzer to ingest.
Also, if you have small children in your home be sure they know not to share their food with your Schnauzer. There are many reports of dogs get very ill because a young child did not know sharing their chocolate bar with the dog would make them sick.
