With the holidays upon us, now is the time for great food and family gatherings. If you have dogs, then you know full well that Fido will be joining in on the festivities, and most likely he will be getting more than his fair share of treats in the form of scraps from the holiday feast.
While it may seem harmless to let your dog indulge every so often, do you know which foods can be toxic for your pet? Sure, there are some obvious ones that everyone knows, like chocolate, but did you know that onions and shallots can be poisonous as well?
The fact is that there are dozens of different foods that may seem harmless but could potentially spell disaster for your furry friend. So, to avoid any problems, should you just cut out human food altogether?
While that may work in theory, we all know that dogs are feisty animals who will inevitably get into something that they shouldn’t. If that happens, you should be aware if what they ate is toxic or just fine.
So, with that in mind, here is a list of human foods that your dog can and cannot eat. This list is far from complete, but it should serve as an adequate guidepost for you so that you can be better informed as to what is okay for dogs and what is potentially deadly. Let’s stay safe out there, people.
