Dog Friendly Tips: Human Foods that dogs must avoid
Foods to keep away from your dog are:
Sweets: DO NOT let your dog eat chocolate. The chemical theobromine contained in chocolate is toxic to canines and even in small amounts can prove to be fatal.
Uncooked red meat and bones. Uncooked meats may contain harmful bacteria, parasites, and cysts, which may make your dog sick.
Cooked Bones may be dangerous because they can splinter and puncture your dog's gastrointestinal tract.
Chicken and turkey bones are a potential hazard for your dog. These small bones can splinter and puncture the stomach or intestines, or cause choking.
Grapes and raisins can be toxic to canines if eaten in large amounts.
Onions and garlic can cause anaemia in dogs.
Also be very careful of string and elastic ties used on some food products when feeding your dog left-overs. These can wreak havoc with the intestinal tract, killing the dog. (My father who was a vet was very careful about elastic band ties and string, having had to do many emergency operations on dogs in his years as a vet).
