Bad Foods for Dogs

It’s hard to resist our dogs’ cute smiles and sad puppy-dog eyes. And when it’s meal time, we often sneak them a treat from our own dinner plates. But you’d be surprised how many different types of human foods are terrible for dogs:

Evil Toxins

Not all tasty foods are good for dogs. Anything with caffeine like chocolate, coffee, tea and soda can be very toxic for dogs. Same goes with grapes, raisons and salt, which can damage a dog’s kidneys. Onions and garlic can damage their red blood cells. Citrus oils will make them vomit…gross! And macadamia nuts affect their digestive and nervous systems.

If You Won’t Eat It, Don’t Feed It

If you find something in your fridge or pantry that is outdated, smells bad or is growing its own fur, don’t feed it to your dog. Rotten foods will only make your pet sick. Also, don’t feed your dog raw eggs, raw meat or raw fish. You wouldn’t eat these foods raw (hopefully) since they can cause salmonella, so why would you feed them to your pet? Same goes with fat trimmings. A mouthful of fatty meat is gross and bad for you. And it’s just as bad for your dog.

What Goes In Must Come Out

Have you ever swallowed a bone, a small toy, or something that just shouldn’t be swallowed? It’s a big problem, especially since what goes in must come out. So don’t feed your dog solid things like fish or animal bones, pits from peaches or plums, or things that aren’t considered food. Also, if you’re baking, don’t give them uncooked dough. It can expand in their stomachs and get stuck in their intestines!

Foods That Could Be Harmful

There are a bunch of foods that contain toxins that COULD harm your pet. These include mushrooms, potatoes, rhubarb, dairy products, cat food and some types of baby food. So if your baby brother or sister throws their supper on the floor, make sure you clean it up before your dog beats you to it. Since these foods COULD be harmful, your safest bet is to avoid feeding them to your dog all together.

Breaking Do you hear me breaking? Can you see the cracks? Do you remember the little boys Who made up secret pacts? All the innocence lost now, Faded to the sea As it sinks softly to the sand Do you see it's breaking me? Do you look into the mirror With your cold and shattered eyes? Do you try and escape the darkness That's buried deep inside? Do you search for a lifeline? For a hidden glowing light That's somewhere in front of you But somehow out of sight I can guide you through the darkness I can take away your fears I can take all the pain away And dry your bitter tears I can be your heavens helper, I can take you by the hand I can help you find a sanctuary Why can't you understand? Is it because I'm different Dan? From the razors at your feet Are they your only relief From the hatred that you meet When you log on to your computer And read the words of hate That are more powerful than sticks and stones And magnify your taste For the harmful lowly weapons Scattered across the floor Why won't you let me help you? Instead of running out the door… The light is always fading Washing to the sea As it melts, like ice, into the ground Dan, Oh, Dan, Can you see it's breaking me?
