Who can resist those big brown eyes and adorable doggy smile? Can a little reward from mom or dad really hurt her? It depends on what it is and what’s in it. If it contains the sweetener xylitol, it can cause real problems for your pet. In fact, there’s a lot of human food he should never eat. And it’s not just because of the weight. Some foods are downright dangerous for dogs. Want to know more? We give you all the details in the following lines! To your readings!
Dog: watch out for these foods!
Candy, chewing gum, toothpaste, baked goods and some health foods are sweetened with xylitol. It can cause your dog’s blood sugar levels to drop and can also lead to liver failure. Also, the first symptoms are vomiting, lethargy and coordination problems. Eventually, your pet may have seizures. Liver failure can occur in just a few days.
Keep onions and garlic (powdered, raw, cooked or dehydrated) away from your dog. This is because they can kill their red blood cells and cause anemia. This is even the case with the onion powder contained in some baby foods. Eating a lot of it once can cause poisoning. Look for signs such as weakness, vomiting, and breathing problems.
Alcoholic beverages and caffeine!
The alcoholic beverages have the same effect on a dog’s liver and brain as they do on humans. But it takes a lot less to hurt your pet. A little liquor, wine or alcoholic food can be harmful. It can cause vomiting, diarrhea, coordination problems, breathing problems, coma, and even death. And the smaller your puppy, the more serious it can be!
Furthermore, the café can be fatal. Be careful with coffee and tea, even beans and grounds. Keep your dog away from cocoa, chocolate, colas and energy drinks. Caffeine is also present in some cold medicines and some pain relievers. Do you think your pet has eaten it? Take him to the vet ASAP!
Do not feed these foods to your dog!
There are better treats to give your dog! But be aware that grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in dogs. And just a small amount can make them sick. Repeated vomiting is an early sign. Within a day, your pet will become lethargic and depressed!
On a hot day, it can be tempting to share your ice cream with your dog. However, give it someCold water. Milk and milk products can cause diarrhea and other digestive issues in your puppy. They can also trigger food allergies, which can be itchy!
