Doggy Toxins

We wouldn’t want your little furry friend to get unwell, so here’s a helping hand on what not to feed your dog or to leave lying around.

Once consumed your dog may experience vomit and diarrhea If matters get worse always book a trip to the vets as it maybe a bigger issue, especially if you dont know how much your companion has eaten.

So here’s a few examples of what not to feed your dog.

Although this might be a healthy snack for us humans, avocado shouldn’t be fed to your furry pal.

A lot of people would know not to give their dog alcohol but alcohol poisoning is more common than you think! We dont mean your dog will be going in to your fridge and grabbing a beer, it can be as simple as them getting a hold of unbaked doug for example the yeast can result in alcohol poisoning.

Caffeine can be found in anything like coffee, tea, energy drinks etc. Caffeine can actually cause death in dogs and cats. It effects all animals but dogs and cats seem to be the most reactive to it.

Chocolate seems to be the one everyone is aware about which is a good sign! The odd chocolate chip in a cookie wouldn’t be an issue. However dark chocolate is the bigger problem. Also if your dog consumes a load of chocolate then that also would be a worry.

Grapes, Raisins & currants:
All of these healthy lovely snacks for humans are very toxic to dogs! Consumption of these can result in to small kidney problems.

Mushrooms & Onions:
Both can cause diarrhea and sickness, weakness resulting in collapsing. Certain breeds are more sensitive but it effects all.

If you’re not sure if your dog can eat a certain food – google it! There’s plenty of helpful websites that can help you. You can always ask your local vet too!
