Tag: foods to avoid
Many pet parents enjoy treating their pet to a table scrap but there are some foods you should avoid when sharing your dinner with Fido. Foods and drinks you digest easily, like the following, can cause trouble for your pooch:
Dinner rolls — Dough expands in the stomach, creating distressing gas.
Onions and garlic — These flavor enhancers contain a compound that could damage a dog’s red blood cells, causing anemia.
Rich sauces — Gravy upsets the stomach and may lead to pancreatitis.
Bones — Sharp pieces of bone can choke a dog or pierce or block her gastrointestinal tract.
Alcohol — Even slightly spiked eggnog can be toxic, so don’t leave any drinks unattended.
Grapes and Raisins — Can cause canine kidney failure
Chocolate — Can cause vomiting, diarrhea, panting, abnormal heart beat, tremors, seizures or even death.
