Food that dogs can’t eat
There are many foods that dogs can’t eat. Some foods may cause poisoning if dogs eat them. Let me list some of the foods I know.
- Chocolate, caffeinated food/drink
Chocolate contains caffeine, which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, polyuria, tachycardia, epilepsy, ataxia, and other abnormal symptoms if dogs take it in large quantities.
Onions contain disulfide or propylene sulfide, which can cause hemoglobin oxidation, hemolysis, hemoglobinuria in dogs, and death from anemia in severe cases.
The fleshy part of grapes contains an unknown substance that may damage the kidneys of dogs, causing vomiting, diarrhea, and kidney failure.
- Uncooked liver
This kind of liver contains vitamin A. If it is not cooked, it will easily lead to vitamin A poisoning in dogs, which will further lead to the dog’s body’s ability to absorb calcium is not strong, which is harmful to bones.
Milk is also something dogs should not touch because it contains a lot of lactose. Lactose can cause indigestion, gastrointestinal absorption, and other phenomena in dogs, and is sometimes accompanied by abdominal distension, dehydration, and other problems. Of course, it does not mean that dogs must not drink milk, we can choose pet milk for dogs to drink.
Excess salt can cause kidney problems in dogs.
Commercially available edible shiitake mushrooms, shrooms, etc. Are harmless to dogs. However, dogs should avoid eating mushrooms, so as not to develop the habit of eating mushrooms and eating poisonous mushrooms by mistake in the wild.
- Seeds and pits
Apples, cherries, pears, and similar fruits are very good for dogs.
But their seeds and pits contain cyanide, a deadly poison for dogs. Cyanide can also be present in a dog’s intestines and can kill the dog within 24 hours without warning.
Xylitol is very lethal to dogs. Xylitol is mainly in chewing gum. Half a piece of chewing gum is enough to cause acute hypoglycemia in 10 kilograms of Teddy. Three grams of xylitol can kill dogs weighing 60 kilograms. After eating it, blood sugar drops sharply. If it is not treated for 24 hours, it can lead to severe liver failure and the death of dogs. So, xylitol can’t be fed to dogs! Toothpaste, chewing gum, and so on at home must be put away! Prevent dogs from eating by mistake!
- Poultry bones
In fact, eating bones is not good for dogs to supplement calcium, on the contrary, it can lead to constipation! Moreover, even if dogs are given bones (for grinding teeth), it is recommended to choose large bones of cattle, sheep, and pigs instead of sharp poultry bones. After cooking, poultry bones such as chickens, ducks, and geese will become extremely sharp, which can easily scratch the dog’s mouth and puncture the digestive tract (intestines and stomach) and cause bleeding.
The fibrous tissue of celery can put dogs at risk of suffocation.
Dogs in the diet to pay attention to a lot, I hope you are not sure of the food to feed the dog, to prevent bad consequences. If you know any other food that dogs can’t eat, please share it and pay attention to it together!
