5 Poisonous Foods For Dogs, Please Don't Ignore


1. Liquor

Alcohol is poisonous to animals, regardless of whether they are older than 21 in dog years. According to Renee Schmid, DVM, DABVT, DABT, a veterinarian toxicologist with Pet Poison Helpline, it doesn't take much alcohol for an animal to acquire alcohol poisoning. If your dog accidentally spills something on the floor or sneaks a sip from your drink, be sure to keep an eye out for lethargy, confusion, and difficulties moving around or standing. Keep their paws well away from your Claws because even a small amount of beer, wine, liquor, or another sort of alcohol can be harmful to a pup's health.

Caffeine 2.

Speaking of beverages, you should keep your pets away from coffee, tea, soda, and other caffeinated beverages. Dogs are more sensitive to coffee than people are, and while a few licks probably won't poison them, big doses might result in vomiting, diarrhea, panting, increased thirst, irregular heart rhythm, and seizures. Keep your tea bags, coffee beans, and chocolate-dipped espresso beans out of reach if your dog is known to eat just about anything.

(3) Xylitol

Toxic to cats and dogs, even trace doses of this artificial sweetener can result in low blood sugar, convulsions, liver failure, or even death. Baked goods, chewing gum, vitamins, and some sugar-free varieties of peanut butter all use xylitol as a sugar alternative. If you believe your dog has consumed any xylitol, make sure to call your veterinarian as soon as possible because xylitol poisoning can happen quickly.

Four) Avocados

Although everyone enjoys avocado toast and guacamole, dogs cannot consume avocados. This is due to the fruit's presence of the toxin persin, which can upset a pet's stomach. It's better to stay away from avocados totally because persin can still be found in the meat despite being concentrated in the fruit's leaves, peel, and pit. Dogs can choke on avocado pits, so be careful how you dispose of them.

Don't be frightened if you see components in some dog foods like avocado oil or avocado meal that come from the fruit's flesh. These are risk-free since the amount of avocado in your pet's meal is a negligible, harmless component.

5. Onions and garlic

The Allium genus, which includes garlic, onions, chives, and leeks, is poisonous to dogs. These should always be kept away from your dog, whether they are raw or being used as an ingredient (even in powder form, as the Allium is more potent). These foods have the potential to harm a dog's vital organs by rupturing red blood cells when swallowed. An upset stomach or even death could happen.
