Unexpected Things That Your Dog Can’t Eat
When Rover is begging at your feet for table scraps, it can be hard to deny him, but Bustle wants you to keep in mind that dogs cannot eat all of the same foods that we as humans can.
- Onions and garlic contain an ingredient called thiosulphate which is toxic to dogs and can cause anemia in your poor pup. Make sure that whatever you feed your pet from the table is free of these foods.
- Avocado believe it or not! The fruit contains persin which can really mess up a dog's stomach, so it's best to keep the guacamole to yourself.
- Xylitol which is the sweetener found in gum, candy and even toothpaste is potentially deadly to your dog. It causes your dog's body to release insulin which can cause liver damage and even death.
So many other foods can harm Rover, so while you may want to feed him from your plate, it's really best that you stick to plain 'ol kibble.
