As part of National Poison Prevention Week, here's our list of bad foods for dogs:
Dog owners all have different rules as what to feed their best friends, but there are bad foods for dogs which can be extremely harmful. It's best to always check to see if a food is ok to feed to a dog before you give it to them.
Here is a list of foods which dogs need to avoid:
Caffeine (incl. coffee and tea)
Dairy Products (incl. milk)
Nicotine (ok - not a food, but some humans do "consume" cigarettes)
Persimmons, Peaches, and Plums
Sugary Foods (incl. candy and gum)
If you believe your dog has eaten any of these bad foods for dogs, call your vet or the Pet Poison Hotline immediately.
As owners, we might eat these foods and not give them to our dogs, however, it's just as important to ensure you have stored these foods away properly. Remember that dogs (even small ones) can jump on tables and counter tops. Especially when you aren't at home, they have to the opportunity to work on trying to jump up and get to those grapes or chocolate sitting on the counter or table top. Do yourself and your dog a favor by storing it in the refrigerator.
Note that dogs can also have other food allergies. I was very surprised to find out that my dog, a Havanese, has quite a lot of allergies. He's allergic to grass (but he still tries to eat it). He also had a bad allergic reaction to corn.
