    Pros: 

    Easy to use and informative!

    Cons: 

    None

    I love dogs and this definitely helps whenever they beg me for what I'm eating. I can easily check if they can eat it or not.

Hey PH,👋 📖 STORY I started learning to code and this is the first product I ever built. 🔨 I challenged myself to build and ship 10 products this year, really hard plan while working full-time. You can read about my challenge here: https://blog.iamtamas.com/i-didn... 🐶 PRODUCT I’m a proud owner of two dogs and I want to make sure that I feed them with food that keep them healthy in the long-term. When it comes to feeding our dogs human food, some typical questions arise: What kind of human foods can dogs eat? What foods are dangerous for dogs? 🍞🍈🥓🍌🍐🥩🍔🍕 So I thought how cool would it be an app that tells you exactly that by simply typing in the food’s name. I also wrote a long guide answering the most frequently asked questions regarding feeding dogs with human food. The app checks mostly basic foods and the most popular human foods, not complex, prepared meals. I’m so excited to share this early version with you guys, let me know what you think so I can make a better new version. :)

@torok_tomi Do you have an API or even a Telegram bot? Your website is really useful, thanks! 👍

@katjabaer Not yet, thinking about the next steps since it's currently an MVP. How would be an API used? or a Telegram bot?

@katjabaer + I thought to create an embeddable version of the app.

@torok_tomi Instead of searching for "potato" on the website I could message "potato" to the Telegram bot. I think a simple "API" would be needed for that bot (something like the form on your website that checks the entered search term in your database).

I think it would be cool if there's a mobile app that works with machine learning by using the phone's camera to detect the foods and just say the result whether it's edible by dogs (also 🐈) or not.

@ozgrozer maaan, give me 5 years and I will do it. :D
This is awesome! Adding cats might expand your market a little though. And cat owners like myself would definitely appreciate it. 😉

Nice resource! One thing I found was that using the enter key doesn't search for a food, you have to push the button. Also, a good addition would be showing the source that shows that the food is safe. Thanks for the great app! 👍

@brendanhersh Oh, it should search for the food by hitting enter. What browser did you use?
