What Human Foods are a Big No No to Give Pets and Why

It is important that we feed our pets a species appropriate, nutritional and well-balanced diet.

Their needs are rather different to us humans; and it is vital that we are aware of what could be dangerous offerings and should be off limits as they are toxic to animals.

Most of us know that chocolate is not good for dogs, so don’t be swayed by the pleading big brown eyes. It could cause our doggo to vomit, have diarrhoea, tremors or seizures.

The natural composition of certain fruits, or ingredients used in some human food, when eaten by a dog, can cause severe digestive problems; allergies, anaemia, liver failure, kidney failure, low blood sugar levels, breathing problems. It’s also best to keep the pantry out of our four legged friends reach so they don’t help themselves to something they shouldn’t.

Steer clear of:

  • Alcohol

  • Avocado

  • Caffeine

  • Cherries

  • Corn

  • Eggplant

  • Garlic

  • Grapes

  • Lemons

  • Limes

  • Mushrooms

  • Nutmeg

  • Nuts

  • Onions

  • Radish

  • Raisins

  • Raw potatoes

  • Rhubarb

  • Tomatoes

  • Xylitol

We all like to give our furry friends a titbit, so why not stock up on some of the nutritional Pooch Palate pet treats.
