Food, Kill, Dog

. .

When you are thinking to make your puppy healthy,  the essential matter would be pet care; knowing what you can and can’t feed. How about stick to a pretty decent doggy diet, and everything should be fine? NO! There’s a lot of foods you probably doubtful about (that might be bad for your pet), including that are commonly healthy for us.

1. Chocolate 
It is one of the most common foods that is bad for dogs, so we figured we’d knock it off the list early. Dog owners know better than to leave a Toblerone or two laying around."

What’s In It: Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine which fall under the methylxanthines category. When we hear the phrase “the darker the chocolate, the more dangerous,” it’s because white chocolates contain fewer methylxanthines. Thus, less toxicity. 

What It Can Do: If eaten by a dog, chocolate can cause vomiting, dehydration, abdominal pains, severe agitation, muscle tremors, irregular heart rhythm, elevated body temperature, seizures and death."

2. Milk
Yeah we know, puppies drink milk from their mothers after they’re born. However, like humans (including moi), dogs can also suffer from lactose intolerance. 

What’s In It: Milk contains milk sugar that dogs don’t have the enzymes to break down. 

What It Can Do: Consumption of milk could lead to vomiting, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems. While it’s not immediately life-threatening, it can contribute to serious bacterial exposure in dogs that could eventually lead to disease.

Sorry boy, no Grilled Cheese Spot for you. Your stomach will thank me for it later.

What’s In It: Like milk, cheese also has sugars and fatty components that dogs don’t have the necessary enzymes to break down. 

What It Can Do: Cheese, and other dairy products, can cause problems if consumed in excess. Symptoms like gas, diarrhea and vomiting can all occur if a dog eats too much cheese.

6. Garlic (SERIOUSLY?, you think of feeding garlic?)
If and only if you think your dog could chase off the vampire near your house.

What’s In It: Garlic is part of the onion family and it is more dangerous to dogs than onions per ounce. It contains compounds that are extremely toxic. 

What It Can Do: The effect of garlic consumption to red blood cells appear after a long period of time (After weeks), the dog’s urine will be orange or dark red.

Controversial For Garlic:  Some medical journal and dog owner believe garlic is a remedy for dog rather than a poison. 

7. Grapes (omg, i thought it is sweet and healthy? )
Like Macadamia Nuts, grapes and raisins can be extremely toxic to dogs. 

What’s In It: While its currently unknown what chemicals and compounds are in grapes that cause toxicity to dogs, the results of consumption can be pretty devastating. 

What It Can Do: Grapes and raisins can cause rapid kidney failure. While it varies between dogs, symptoms may not show up in them. Other than kidney failure, dogs can also develop vomiting or diarrhea as well as a lethargic state. Dogs will also develop dehydration and lack of appetite. Death from kidney failure may occur within three to four days.

8. Avocado
You might want to hold off sharing that guac with your doggy pal. He’ll thank you for it later. 

What’s In It: Avocado leaves, pits, bark and fruit contain a toxin called persin. 

What It Can Do: Avocados can have toxic effects on dogs depending on the variety. They can cause upset stomachs in dogs, breathing difficulties, fluid buildup in the chest, but the most dangerous thing for them seem to the be the pit. Since it’s slippery, the pit can accidentally be swallowed by dogs, leading to obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract.
