There’s a lot of human food that can be very dangerous when given to dogs. Before giving your pooch treats from your dining table, familiarize yourself with the list of foods you should never ever offer to them.
Here’s a list from Adam pets.
1. Macadamia nuts
Giving your dog as few as six pieces of macadamia nuts, whether raw or roasted, can actually make them ill and possibly lead to their death. Macadamia poisoning symptoms include elevated body temperature, vomiting, muscle tremors, weakness, paralysis of the hindquarters and rapid heart rate.
2. Grapes and raisins
Often used as treats to pooches, grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure. Repeated vomiting, lethargy and depression are some of the signs that your dog hasn’t reacted well with the food.
3. Fat trimmings and bones
While cooked and uncooked fat trimmings can cause pancreatitis in dogs, a bone can cause a dog to choke or cause lacerations or obstruction on its digestive system.
4. Food with excess salt
Rewarding your dog with chips and pretzels can lead to sodium poisoning as these foods contain too much salt. Symptoms of too much salt intake include diarrhea, vomiting, tremors, depression and increased body temperature.
5. Coffee, tea and other caffeinated drinks
Making your pooch take a sip of your morning coffee isn’t a good idea as it can cause caffeine poisoning. Symptoms include heart palpitations, rapid breathing, restlessness, fits and muscle tremors.
6. Yeast dough
If you feed your dog yeast dough, it will swell inside the animal’s body stretching its abdomen and causing severe pain. Moreover, when the yeast ferments the dough to make it rise, it can actually cause alcohol poisoning.
Chocolate is probably the sweetest treat humans can have. However, the tehobromine component of chocolate is very dangerous to dogs. As simple as licking an icing bowl can cause a dog to vomit, experience diarrhea and be extremely thirsty. In worse cases, eating chocolate can lead to abnormal heart rhythm, seizures, tremors and death.
Intake of too much alcohol is damaging for humans but even a tiny amount of this can have detrimental effects on the dog’s liver and brain. Any beverage or food containing alcohol can cause diarrhea, vomiting, breathing difficulties, coordination problems, central nervous system depression, coma and even death.
9. Onions and garlics
Whether raw, cooked, dehydrated or powdered, onions and garlics can destroy your pooch’s red blood cells and cause anemia. Weakness, vomiting, breathlessness, poor appetite and dullness are some of the symptoms of poisoning.
10. Peaches, persimmons and plums
Seeds from persimmons can cause inflammation and obstruction in the dog’s small intestine. On the other hand, peach and plum have cyanide content which is poisonous to both humans and dogs.
11. Raw eggs
Bacteria in raw eggs like Salmonella and E. coli can cause food poisoning. Meanwhile, an enzyme present in raw eggs can lead to poor absorption of vitamin E that can cause skin problems in your dog.
12. Raw fish and meat
You should throughly cook meat and fish before offering it to your pooch. Raw meat, like raw eggs, contain bacteria that can cause poisoning. On the other hand, raw fish particularly trout, salmon, sturgeon or shad contain parasites that cause poisoning.
Although giving your dog avocado may sound like a healthy option, it can actually do your pooch harm. Avocados contain persin which can be toxic when given in large amount.
