18 Worst Human Foods For Your Dog

It’s hard to not give a dog a scrap of human food from time to time. In fact, dog meals made from our food can be healthy and nutritious, not to mention delicious for your pup.

Though not every food that we eat is good for our canine friends and some are downright dangerous. So dangerous in fact, that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) had to issue an official statement, which you can find in this article.

To keep your dog healthy, avoid giving him the following snacks.

1. Chocolate

2. Grapes

3. Garlic and Onions

7. Bread Dough

This may seem obvious, but the yeast found in dough is dangerous for dogs.
This also means that you shouldn’t, under any circumstances give your dog bread dough, not even in small quantities.

The enzymes in the yeast convert the sugar in the dough to ethanol (alcohol) and carbon dioxide.
The carbon dioxide is what makes the dough rise and if happens after the dough had been eaten by your pet, you know where and what will happen.

After eating, the yeast can multiply in your dog’s stomach causing pain or even as bad as destroying tissue.

The kitchen can be a dangerous place for a dog. However, by continuously expanding your knowledge and being aware of the hazards, your dog can live a long and healthy life!

Be careful with everything in kitchen and especially take good care of your garbage and make sure it’s properly sealed so that the dogs cannot rummage through it for food.
