If you own a dog, you know they’re a true-blue member of the family. But if you let them eat from the kitchen table like the rest of you do, it can have terrible consequences. Here’s what to avoid feeding your dog, courtesy of the Bottom Line Personal.
- Grapes and raisins. They can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and life threatening kidney failure.
- Sugarless gum and candy containing xylitol, which is a type of sugar substitute. It can cause a rapid drop in a dog’s blood sugar, which can result in depression, loss of coordination and seizures.
- Onions are very bad for pooches. They can cause gastrointestinal irritation and anemia, and damage the dog’s red blood cells. Just a single, small whole onion can be fatal.
- Macadamia nuts. These can cause vomiting, depression, tremors, and temporary paralysis of their hind legs. And although this does usually clear up on it’s own without any lasting effects, it’s still no fun for your 4-legged family member.
