Food that definitely does not belong in a dog's bowl

In many households, a dog's life is synonymous with a warm bed, walks and something good for the teeth. In short, we like to pamper our pet animals. Sometimes even by sharing our own dinner with them. But as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Human food can upset our dogs' digestion, cause unwanted weight gain in the long term, and some foods can seriously harm dogs. Which ones are they?

Among the notorious ones is chocolate , caffeine , alcohol whose raw dough with yeast. One square of chocolate probably won't harm your dog in any way. But with quantity comes danger.


Grapes and h raisins they tend to be associated with kidney failure, although it is not entirely clear which contained substance causes these difficulties. Symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea or lethargy usually appear within twelve hours. Don't mess with your dog avocado . The consequences would probably not be as terrible as after eating raisins, but this fruit can still hurt.

onions , chives , spring onion , leek or garlic they can also seriously damage a dog's health. The danger also lies in the fact that garlic poisoning will manifest itself in a few days. One of its signs, in addition to fatigue and lethargy, is orange-colored urine. The Akita and Shiba Inu breeds are particularly sensitive to these foods.

If you like to crack nuts in front of the TV and share with your canine friend, you better watch out. Definitely do not feed your dog macadamia nuts and almonds . And you better save with the others too. Nuts are rich in fats, which in large quantities are not good for both humans and dogs. It's the same with salt – keep the salted nuts for yourself. You also deny your darling sweets . Ice cream, candy or a piece of cake will hurt less if you arrange it yourself. Avoid i cinnamon , which is not good for dogs.


Save money in your dog's diet or avoid it altogether tomatoes and potatoes . You should also handle s very judiciously mushrooms .

Despite the widespread notion, it does not even belong in the dog bowl boiled or baked bones . Never give them to your dog, even if he is used to barf. The heat treatment changes the structure of the bone, which then splits into sharp fragments in the body that can damage the intestines. That's why the bones left over from Sunday lunch always belong in the bin (they don't even fit in the compost).

Just like human health, dog health is very individual. Therefore, watch out for symptoms of allergies, for example. If you suspect food intolerance or even poisoning, consult a veterinarian as soon as possible and watch closely for any symptoms or unusual behavior.
