Human foods that are harmful to dogs.

There are many common human foods that are really harmful to your dog.  Their digestive systems are different than ours so not everything you eat is a good idea to share with the pooch.

  • Bones from fish and cooked bones can obstruct the digestivesystem.  Not good!
  • Chocolate, coffee, tea and caffeinated drinks are bad.  They contain caffeine which could be toxic and impact the heart and nervous systems.
  • Citrus oil extracts result in vomiting.  Stay away!
  • Grapes, raisins and macadamia nuts contain unknown toxins that can damage the kidneys.
  • Large amounts of cooked liver cause Vitamin A toxicity, which impacts muscles and bones.
  • Spoiled food and garbage – just don’t go there.  Definitely considered toxic for dogs.
  • Mushrooms can result in shock and cause death.
  • Alcohol can result in coma and death.
  • Bread dough can result in a bloated belly and then disorientation and vomiting.  Since it is yeast that hasn’t risen yet, you do not want it to expand in Fido’s belly, much less get stuck in the intestines!
  • Onions and garlic, whether raw, cooked, or powder, in large amounts have the ability to damage red blood cells and cause anemia.
