Human Foods that are Toxic to Dogs

Dogs are not picky eaters and will eat pretty much anything and everything in front of them. However, this doesn’t mean they should and that everything they want to eat is good for them. We from Pampered Pets want you to be aware of which foods are unsafe for your dog, so you can keep them safe.

You might think that just because it’s good for us humans, some foods can also be suitable for dogs, but that’s not true. Why? Because a dog’s metabolism is totally different from ours. So foods that are just fine for you can be bad news for your dog, causing vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach, weakened breathing, and more severe issues like kidney problems, seizures, and even death!

Here is a list of extremely dangerous and even poisonous foods for our dogs:

  • Chocolate.
  • Onions, Garlic, and Chives. 
  • Alcohol. 
  • Grapes and Raisins. 
  • Apple Seeds. 
  • Avocados. 
  • Cherry Pits. 
  • Coffee. 
  • Macadamia Nuts. 
  • Mushroom Plants. 
  • Mustard Seeds. 
  • Peach Pits. 
  • Potato Leaves and Stems. 
  • Rhubarb Leaves. 
  • Tomato Leaves and Stems. 
  • Walnuts. 
  • Xylitol. 
  • Yeast Dough.

So just remember, when in doubt, always check if your dog is really allowed to eat that certain food, because now you know some common human foods can cause some serious health scares on your pup.
