It would blow your mind if you really knew how many foods are dangerous for dogs.
Sure, we have all heard over and over again not to overfeed your dog. Many otherwise loving pet owners are just unaware of just how many varieties of our “people” food that is perilous, if not deadly to your dog.
For starters, let’s look at garlic and onions. I don’t know about you but these are required ingredients in almost all of my cooking, especially Italian cuisine and they are terrific for our health. However, these veggies can have a devastating effect on your dog’s health. A dog’s constitution can only handle a very small dose of these, ideally it is best if they had none at all.
I don’t know about you, but I grew up with the little “raisin-maid” raisin girl and to this day it is my favorite element to any trail mix I eat. Also, any type of grapes, either red or green, is a regular part of my healthy diet. As these are beneficial and healthy for us and a preferred snack I give to my kids but, they are very bad for our dog’s health.
Did you know that raw pork is also a very dangerous food for your dog. If they ingest any of this raw meat they can quite possibly acquire an incurable diseased digestive condition. If you really need to give them pork, you can over cook it or freeze it for at least 3 weeks to make it safe and no longer a dangerous food for your dog.
