What Foods are Bad for Dogs – What Not to Feed Dogs
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 BEGGERS. 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.
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.
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!).
