Worst 20 Human Foods For Your Dog
It’s hard not to give your dog table scraps from time to time. In fact, giving dog meals of human food can be healthy and nutritious, not to mention delicious, for your pup.
Even though a lot of the food that we eat is good for our canine friends, some human food is downright dangerous for them. So dangerous, in fact, that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) had to issue an official statement, which you can find in this article.
To keep your dog healthy, avoid giving him the following snacks.
This is probably one that every dog owner knows. It’s general knowledge that people who don’t have dogs known as well. The chemical that gives chocolate, especially dark chocolate, its distinctive taste can be fatal to dogs when consuming in larger amounts.
And when we say fatal, we mean fatal, because there have been numerous dog fatalities due to consuming chocolate.
Keep it away from them and do not give chocolate to your furry friend, no matter what.
There are a lot of tasty alternatives to chocolate, so maybe it’s time to find a healthier and even tastier substitute for chocolate.
Chocolate may not be toxic to your dog if given in very small amounts, however, it is a very common cause of dog poisoning because people who do give their dogs chocolate, usually give them way too much.
Cocoa beans contain caffeine and theobromine, a chemical compound.
The dog isn’t able to metabolize theobromine as fast as humans can, and the more theobromine the chocolate contains, the more poisonous it is for your dog.
The signs of chocolate poisoning are vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, tremors, high blood pressure, respiratory failure and even cardiac arrest.
