Is It Ok to Give My Chihuahuas Human Food Every Day?

My mother has 2 small chihuahuas that she gives human food every single day. Literally every single plate we have for meals, she gives them the food. Even the fatty foods. Example: she just got mad at my brother for throwing the away the fat off his steak cuz she wanted to give it to the dogs. Is it ok for these small dogs to have all this human food plus their dog food sitting out all day?
Thank you for your answers. Hopefully after reading this my mother will realize that she should stop doing this.

The dogs shouldn’t get that much human food.

    She should be aware of what is poisonous for dogs, like onions and grapes. The dogs also shouldn’t be overweight. Some people think "oh the dog is only 5 pounds over its not so bad". Chihuahuas should be 6 pounds. If they are 12 pounds it is 200% of their ideal weight. 18 pounds is 300%. That’s like a person who is supposed to be 150 pounds but instead is 300 pounds or 450 pounds respectively. A 12 pound chihuahua is the equivalent of a morbidly obese human health-wise.

    No. I’m no vet or dog specialist in any way but i do know that ANY DOG, ANY PET, should NEVER be feed human food every day. I have a chihuahua and sometimes i may throw her a piece of bacon or once in a while when we have steak, the bone with some of the fat, but that shouldn’t happen every day. Maybe once in a while, but feeding your dog human food every day is not good for their health. They need to eat their dog food every day and can still recieve bits of leftovers but not every day. Its tempting, i know, because of their adorably cute faces but it IS NOT GOOD FOR THE DOG. If your mom doen’t agree, she needs to speak to a vet. Hope I’ve helped! Good luck and have a great day! (:
