Food For Thought: What's Good For Me Is Good For My Dog?

Even though in general sense this might be true, dogs have different nutrient requirements than people, and some of the foods we enjoy are poisonous to dogs.

I always thought that most people knew this, but I keep being proven wrong. It is important information to be aware of, so here it is again.

While it seems that opinions on toxicity of some foods vary, here is a list of foods that you definitely should keep your dog away from:
  • onions
  • chocolate
  • caffeine
  • grapes and raisins
  • macadamia nuts
  • wallnuts
  • artificial sweeteners
  • fruit pits and seeds
  • alcohol
  • avocado
  • tomato plants
  • nutmeg
  • yeast dough

  2. Hi! Thank you for reading and for the comment! :-) When you search the web you'll find that different places list different things. These items are the most commonly listed in different sources and make most sense to me.
