Dogs can be opportunists when it comes to getting their paws on tasty treats, but not all our everyday food and drink that we consume is safe for our beloved four-legged friends.
We have often come across friends and family feeding their dogs food which is toxic to their bodies, so we decided to compile a list in this bullet point blog. All items below are particularly dangerous to a dog’s health, but the first 9 MUST be avoided.
- Xylitol (sweetener) (very dangerous)
- Onion (any type)
- Walnuts and Macadamia nuts
- Alcohol and raw yeast doughs
- Grapes, sultanas, raisins
- Mould (especially blue cheese mould)
- Fruit seeds
- Dairy products (including milk, cheese and ice cream)
- Cooked bones (as they splinter)
- Human vitamins
- Fat trimmings
- Chilli and spicy foods
- Marijuana, potato leaf, rhubarb leaf, tomato leaf
We hope this list has offered you some guidance. It isn’t an exhaustive one, but these items have been proven to be very dangerous for a dog’s health. If you are ever unsure of something in the garden or at home, it is always best to research it to see if it’s safe or check with your veterinarian.
