Human foods your pet should avoid

Proper pup care is all about feeding your furry pal a balanced diet of dog food, water, and scraps snuck off the table. Right?

Actually, no.

Check out this list of foods that are 100% not safe for your dog to eat. Some of these foods your pets should avoid might surprise you!

All of those foods contain ingredients that dogs can’t stomach (literally) and can lead to symptoms like these:

• Vomiting or gagging
• Painful, sensitive abdomen
• Lack of appetite
• Lethargy
• Changes in normal behavior
• Diarrhea
• Constipation
• Death (sounds dramatic, we know, but it’s possible!)

If your dog does eat something bad and they start to react, get them to the vet ASAP! If you feel it’s a real emergency, call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (888-426-4435) and they will walk you through what to do until you can get to the vet.

There are a lot of foods that we enjoy that your pets should avoid. Letting your dog eat the wrong people food can be super dangerous and harmful. So take good care of your pal! Only feed dogs food that’s meant especially for them (and maybe the occasional nibble of lean meat).

If you love dogs, you can help right now.
