7 foods pets should not eat: No begging
IMO dogs are carnivorous animals, I give my dogs all kinds of steak and stuff, they rarelly even touch their dog food. They starve if i dont give them their normal food. IMO the dog food is just a lab made food with all kinds of vitamins with no taste or something...Well that's my opinion tho...
I don’t give my dog any people food just to be sure. Someone gave him food at a party we had last month that he could not digest, and I had to take him to the vet. I know veggies are good for dogs so I just buy him Delectable Delights stews where you can see them in the gravy. My rule of thumb is stick to a trusted natural brand like Natural Balance and you don’t have to worry.
Just feed then a good and healthy quality dog food and there's nothing to worry about. A little meat now and then, and if you feed them pasta, ya gotta sprinkle a little cheese on it. My former dog BB would not eat it without the cheese. I would put it on the floor without the cheese, then he would look at me like saying " What's up with this, where's the Parmesan ! " )
Macadamia nuts are absolutely deadly to dogs. I've heard 6 nuts are sufficient to kill any sized dog. Frightful!
Thanks for the info. I never let my dogs have any kind of nuts but didn't realize how deadly they can be.
Raisins/grapes can cause kidney failure. I own labs, and our vet is mainly Labs only. The problem with feeding certain human foods is their pancreas' cannot digest the fats in the food making the dog sick. I give very limited things. Veggies such as carrots raw are a great snack, mashed potatoes, grilled chicken and beef are all vet approved . Otherwise I dont feed them anything, except the crust off toast and the very rare pancake :)
Are you saying dogs should not be fed dry food? Do you suggest dogs be fed only canned food? I give my dogs a little canned food on top of their dry but I think they need some hard food to chew on and since I have 3 dogs, two of which weigh 85 pounds and 1 14 pound and I would go broke trying to feed them all canned food.
