We may treat our pets like they’re human, but that doesn’t mean they get to eat “people food.”
Here are a list of potentially harmful foods that you should never feed your dog.
1. Apple seeds and cores
2. Coconut and coconut oil
4. Grapes and raisins
5. Apricot stems, leaves, and pits
6. Onions and chives
10. Salt and salty snack foods
11. Cherry steams, leaves, and pits
12. Macadamia nuts
13. Other nuts, including almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and pecans
14. Mustard seeds
16. Tomato plant
17. Citrus fruits
19. Coffee and caffeine
20. Raw eggs
22. Potato leaves, stems, skin, or any green parts
23. Peach stems, leaves, and pits
26. Marijuana and edibles
27. Yeast dough
Of course, not all dogs will react the same way to all foods. If you’re in doubt, always ask your vet.
