I was browsing the internet today on the subject of tomatoes and allergies to tomatoes as well as epileptic type seizures (caused by tomatoes) when I stumbled upon a very important article/blog that all dog owners should read before allowing their pet dog to eat something ‘exotic’ or human type food.
Just taking a look at it and you can see it is a long list of things you should never feed your dog or let your dog eat or ingest.
It is titled ‘COMMON FOODS THAT ARE HARMFUL
OR EVEN FATAL TO DOGS’:http://www.lowchensaustralia.com/health/dietno.htm
In fact, don’t even feed your dog catfood, while many people think they are the same they are not. As the above article states catfood can contain too much protein or fat which would be harmful to a dog.-->
Ever think of feeding your dog a handful of raisins? DON’T IT COULD KILL HIM/HER!
Everybody knows feeding your dog chocolate is a death sentence but there is a large list of things that can make your dog sick or even cause coma or death, so please get acquainted with the facts before you do something careless, and don’t trust just because I said it, have a conversation with your veterinarian and confirm each thing on the list if you have to.
Some people think it would be funny to put beer in your dogs drinking bowl or force exhaled marijuana smoke into your pets mouth. Well think again, Alcohol is the first on the list of things that could put your pet into a coma or kill him/her. As well marijuana can make your pet very sick. (Beer also contains HOPS which could cause your pet dog to have a seizure. So even non-alcoholic beer is dangerous for dogs).
So if you feel the need to feed your pet something special for him or her make sure that food or treat is made for a dog (to be given to a dog) or cat (to be given to a cat), and if in doubt ask a professional/veterinarian!
