I was reading an article about “what not to feed your dog and I would like to share this information with you if you have a pooch or two.  This was in Reader’s Digest a while back:

  1.   Grapes or Raisins these are extremely toxic.
  2.   Avacados, they contain persin which again is toxic to dogs.
  3.   Bones that splinter.  You would think this would be a no brainier but some don’t realize how those splinters can be incredibly harmful to the dog from going in one end all the way through if it makes it that far with no hangups front to back.
  4.  Bacon or other fatty meat scraps can cause pancreatitus in pups.  One bite here and there is not a bad thing unless you make a habit of it.  The pancreas can become inflamed and stop working.  It is also loaded with salt, another baddie for dogs.
  5. Chocolate – Extremely toxic, it can be even worse for some breeds than others.  Just don’t feed it to your dog period.
  6.   Garlic a member of the allium family (chives, onions and leeks)  It can cause anemia, can cause other side effects – pale gums, elevated heart rate, weakness and collapsing.
  7.   Ice cream – Since dogs don’t digest dairy very well, it’s not a good idea to feed it to them but if you do, only in moderation.
  8.   Any kind of alcohol.  If your dog laps up a few drops here and there don’t panic, its when they lap up half or a whole glass.  Phone your Vet right away because it can cause diarrhea, vomiting, breathing problems or worse.
  9.    Macadamia Nuts.  While peanuts are 100 percent OK for dogs to eat, macadamia nuts are quite poisonous for them, they can effect the nervous system, cause vomiting, elevated body temperature and lethargy,
  10.   Peaches and Plums.  The actual fruit is OK, it is the pit that can kill.  The pit contains a form of cyanide which is poisonous to dogs and human alike.
  11.   Coffee – Never let a dog into your iced coffee cup.  The stimulant methylated xanthine makes your dogs nervous system go into overdrive.  Symtoms can include vomiting, restlessness,  heart palpitations or worse.  That is the whole list.  I hope this has been helpful to you and happy shopping.
