What foods can't dogs eat?
We all love to treat our pups to the occasional treat! While some human foods are fine in moderation, others should be avoided entirely. Harmful foods for dogs include:
Certain fruits and vegetables
Many fruits and vegetables are fine for dogs to eat in small quantities, but can pose a choking hazard if they're not cut into small pieces and fed under supervision. However, the following foods should be avoided, and can be very toxic, even in small amounts:
Some kinds of wild mushrooms.
Other plants that can cause toxicity in dogs when eaten in large quantities include:
Rhubarb (mainly leaves).
Potato leaves and stems.
Tomato leaves and stems.
Apple seeds, Cherry pits, Apricot pits, Peach pits, present a small risk only but can cause obstructions in the digestive system.
Other potentially harmful foods for dogs
Xylitol – often found in certain types of peanut butter and chewing gum.
