DO’S & DON’T’S OF DOGGY TREATS: DANGEROUS FOODS

Dog people have great hearts. They open their arms and their home to their furry friends. Sharing is a great way to show love! But sharing your food with your dog can be very dangerous to their health.

tylenol

Tylenol may helps ease our aches and pains, but it is extremely toxic in our canine pals. It attacks the kidneys and liver to cause a variety of symptoms such as vomiting, dark urine, and diarrhea. If your suspect that your pooch has ingested Tylenol, contact your vet ASAP!

Alcohol

Alcohol can be dangerous in people in improper quantities but it is always a bad idea in our pets. Just like it attacks our livers, it is even more so in dogs as they are much more sensitive to it. Common symptoms of alcohol consumption in dogs is diarrhea, breathing issues, coma, and even death.

onions & garlic

Onions and garlic are great for our food, but definitely NOT for our doggos. They contain persin, a compound that causes red blood cell destruction in dogs. Common symptoms of toxicity include vomiting, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, and weakness.

Dairy

Some dairy is okay for your pooch, like the occasional puppuccino or nonfat yogurt. However, too much diary has some pretty nasty canine consequences. An excess of dairy will cause bloating, nausea, and diarrhea so only occasional puppucinos!

caffeine

Most humans need at least one cup of joe to get through the day, maybe even several. The amount we intake can be harmful, but it is a MUCH bigger deal in dogs. Caffeine in any form is toxic to the heart and nervous system in your pawed companion. No caffeine for Fido!

Here are just a few examples of foods that can be dangerous to your pooch. There are many others so feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns!
