Toxic or Dangerous Foods for Your Dog  

Posted by — Kim in , , , , , , , , ,

Here's a Quick Safety Tip...

Every year, thousands of dogs become sick due to everyday foods that their owners keep around the house. While most of these foods are completely safe and healthy for human consumption, some may be toxic for your dog, due to their chemical makeup. Others may be dangerous, because they are uncooked or due to improper or non-secure storage.

Never feed your dog any of the following items. These can be toxic to your dog's system and could put him or her at risk of physical and emotional or behavioral problems!

  • Chocolate
  • Grapes or raisins
  • Apples, apricots, cherries, peaches or plums (the stems, seeds and leaves)
  • Fruit pits
  • Onions or garlic
  • Corn cobs
  • Potato or rhubarb
  • Tomato leaves
  • Coffee grounds/beans
  • Nutmeg
  • Yeast dough (unbaked)
  • Baking powder or baking soda
  • Moldy or spoiled food
  • Fatty foods
  • Large quantity of raw fish
  • Large quantity of raw liver
  • Large quantity of macadamia nuts
  • Wild mushrooms
  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana
  • Tobacco

Protect your dog from these toxic foods by:

  1. eating them while away and not bringing them home,
  2. locking them up or keeping them out of his reach,
  3. being firm and refusing to give them to her,
  4. keeping your garbage safely out of his reach

To your dog's health,
