Dangerous Foods to Keep Away From Your Dog

Dangerous Foods to Keep Away From Your Dog

As a general rule, don’t feed your dog table scraps. Choose a high-quality dog food that meets your dog’s nutritional needs and to help resist sharing your food with your dog. We may be tempted to give our dogs a human snack or he may steal some food or get into the garbage. However, there are a number of foods that are highly dangerous and can make your dog sick or even kill him. Chocolate contains a stimulant that affects the central nervous system that can lead to seizures and death. Any product with caffeine can also lead to issues. Onions and garlic causes stomach upsets and can cause damage to the red blood cells. Raisins and grapes can cause kidney failure. And just a tiny bit of artificial sweeteners such as xylitol can cause a lethal release of insulin, blood clots and liver disease. Learn more from your veterinary clinic Aurora, CO.
