Avoid sweets. Xylitol that is ever-present in sweet people-foods such as candies and gums causes dogs’ blood sugar to drop. Furthermore, it causes liver failure that will put your dogs’ lives at serious risk.
Chocolate is no good for canines. The caffeine and theobromine present in chocolate cause dogs to have severe vomiting, lethargy, and coordination problems. Worse, dogs can have seizures soon enough. The darker the chocolate, the higher is its damage to dogs’ health.
Drinks we enjoy, such as coffee, tea, and cola, also have caffeine, and they also have methylxanthine that causes dogs to experience rapid heartbeat and overly excited and hyper. Moreover, too much of said contents can cause dogs to undergo a series of tremors and seizures.
Avoid berries such as raisins and grapes. These pieces of berries cause diarrhea and vomiting. Dogs shall ingest no amount of these berries, for it causes a serious risk to these curious muzzles’ health.
Onion And Garlic
Although present in some varieties of dog food, onion and garlic can still be toxic for dogs to a certain extent. That is why it is still essential to regulate or better avoid these kinds of food, whether fresh or put as flavors. It damages dogs’ red blood cells that further causes anemia.
Bread and other products with yeast dough are also prohibited. Yeast dough expands when ingested, which causes an accumulation of air inside dogs’ tummies that causes them to experience abdominal pain and difficulty in pooping.
In addition to that, mostly present in pastries and bread products are macadamia nuts. Macadamia nuts cause the dogs’ bones to weaken, particularly their hind legs. It causes difficulty in walking and running and uncomfortable sitting and sleeping positions. Soon enough, when they ingest a large amount of these nuts, dogs may experience ataxia, vomiting, hyperthermia, and depression.
Lastly, be careful with storing and disposing of painkillers. These medications with high doses can cause death to canines. Also, never give your dog’s medicines that are not prescribed by licensed veterinarians. Make sure to store your drugs in closed and unreachable cabinets for dogs. If you are about to dispose of expired pieces, make sure to securely put them in the trash.
Dogs are always curious and playful, so you must watch where and what they are playing. They bite almost everything, so it is essential to keep the following listed people-food away from their reach.
