The DON’Ts of feeding your pet:

1Chocolate


The bane of all dogs, chocolate is one of the worst products you can give to your pet. Chocolate contains methylxanthines, which are toxic for any dog and if consumed in large amounts, they can cause even death. Smaller amounts of digested chocolate lead to diarrhea, vomiting, seizures and heart issues, so always keep chocolate somewhere you dog cannot reach!

2Garlic/onions


Garlic and onions are not the kind of food most dogs love, but still eating these products is dangerous for your pets. Onions can harm red blood cells, and garlic can cause anemia and corresponding symptoms, such as pale gums, collapsing, heart issues, etc. Avoid the Allium family when feeding your dog; garlic is the most toxic product of all the plants belonging to this family.

3Almonds (also pecans, macadamia, and walnuts)


This is not the worst type of products in the list, but almonds can be dangerous if not chewed appropriately, and they also can cause the esophagus blocking. The salt that’s often added to these nuts can retain water in a dog’s body, which may cause heart problems.

4Ice cream


Ice cream contains lactose that can be hard for some dogs to tolerate, and dairy products are not the best type of food for feeding your four-legged friend. The sugar and artificial coloring substances are also to be avoided. If you want to make a refreshing treat, freeze some berries or apples, or even yoghurt.

5Cinnamon


Cinnamon is not recommended to be consumed by dogs, because the oils in it can harm a dog’s mouth and affect the blood sugar level, which may lead to vomiting, heart issues, liver disease, diarrhea, etc. Cinnamon powder can cause breathing issues if inhaled: your dog may start choking and coughing.
