Do Not Let Your Dog Eat These Human Foods

Can Dogs Eat People Food?

There are times when feeding your puppy human food looks really cute. Ahhh look, little woofy likes pizza, isn’t that adorable?! They can chow down with the best of us and their big eyes staring at you while you eat can be quite the influence. But you can be doing harm to poor little doggie and not even know it.

There are many foods that are fine for people to eat that can cause discomfort, diarrhea, and event death in your dog. If you know about these human foods that your dog should not eat ahead of time, though, it can help you to prepare for the puppy.

Do Not To Let Your Dog Eat These Foods

It may be cute, but do not let your dogs eat these foods.

  • Alcohol – This can cause vomiting, difficulty breathing, coma, and death
  • Chocolate – This one is the most common we hear about during the holidays. Do NOT let the dogs eat chocolate.  Put it up and out of reach of their noses. They will find a way.
  • Coconut flesh and oil – can cause upset stomachs
  • Grapes and Raisins – TOXIC TO DOGS. Do not let your dogs eat these. They can be found in fruit cakes, cookies, or bunches on the table. Be aware.
  • Macadamia Nuts – Can cause vomiting and weakness within 12 hours of eating
  • Onions, Garlic, Chives – Can lead to red blood cell damage. Onions can be in dips, on pizza, in bread, with meats, etc…
  • Xylitol – If your house has gone low carb, this may be in your home. It’s an artificial sweetner often found in gum and toothpaste. Can lead to liver failure and seizures.

This is in no way an extensive list, and some things that are fine for dogs to eat may be bad for cats. Please be careful with what you let your pets eat from the human table. And if your puppy does get sick, take note of what everyone has been eating so that you can tell the vet.
