What Foods are Bad for Dogs – What Not to Feed Dogs

Pug thinking about food

They stare at you. They lick their lips- a million times. They pant. They make you feel as guilty as you would feel for not sharing your souvenir stuffed animal with a child on a plane. They make your heart melt (just like soft white chocolate). They are your PUGS and they are MASTER BEGGARS. It’s a pug thing and it is also a very dog thing. HOW CAN YOU RESIST? You must given them what they want- YOUR FOOD, the cat’s food, the other dog’s food, the food in the garbage and the food that has not been prepared yet. While this is perfectly fine with you, it might cost your dog their health and well being. Some human food and other general food items that “seem” OK for dogs to consume are really dangerous for your paw friends.


Dog looking at avacado

No matter how good you think the guacamole is, you should not give it to your dog. Avocados contain a substance called persin. It’s harmless for humans who are not allergic. If you feed it to your dog in large amounts then it can be toxic for them. Dogs should be kept away from the fruit and away from the plant in general!  Persin can be found in the lead, seed and bark, as well as in the fruit. Therefore, if you have avocado growing in your backyard you should be very careful that your dogs are not going near it.

Update: We have had a lot of feedback from our users regarding avocado, and the general consensus is that it is not very harmful; however, because we are paranoid pug parents, we will continue to keep Bunk away from avocado.


Pug running with beer

Although your dog’s behavior might make them seem like a drunkard, their body really DOES NOT appreciate a drink. Whether it is a beer, some wine, patron or any food containing alcohol, any amount of alcohol is bad for your pug’s behind. Alcohol has the same effect on a dog’s liver and brain that it has on humans. Given the fact that your dog is (usually) smaller in body size than you, the affects show MUCH faster! Just a little alcohol can cause vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, problems with coordination, difficulty breathing, and coma, even death.

Therefore, if you want to see your dog be silly, don’t give them alcohol. Instead, put some tape on their paws and watch them in action (JUST KIDDING!).

  2. Great post! We had to call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center when Mack was a wee one when he ate some Tylenol that had dropped on the floor. They were wonderful. He had to spend some days at the ER vet hospital but made a full recovery. They said he must have only eaten 1 otherwise it would have destroyed his organs. Thank God he only ate 1. They did ask for a donation when it was over. Well worth it!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  4. Montana Sky the Chihuahua here. Hey! I’ve eaten sardines and they don’t bother me at all. When it comes to raw meat, although I’ve never had it, why not eat it. Long before dog food we were killing and eating raw meat. I do think we’re getting a little bit away from what we’re born to do. I’ve never eaten raw meat. But I’ve eaten cooked venison. I’ve never eaten raw meat but I”ve eaten hamburger cooked. I think it depends on the dog when it comes to raw meat because you have to understand that we weren’t always eating dog food. That’s unnatural. Our humans tend to think if it’s going to hurt them eating something raw it’ll hurt us. When mom give me sardines in a can with oil, nothing has ever happened. Those sardines aren’t cooked. I don’t get sardines often. Only when mom has a craving. It depends on the dog I still say. I’m only a six pound Chihuahua, so what works for me might not work for you.

    • You should talk to your vet. I don’t want to give any advice because your dog is unique and should receive care based on his/her physiological makeup. Let us know how it goes.
