Plenty of the foods that humans digest just fine, including fruits and vegetables, will impact negatively on the body of a dog, creating significant health problems. Some foods people consume, on the other hand, can be added to the diet of a dog just fine, and also have health benefits such as joint mobility, improved breath, and immunity to allergies.
Chocolate can never be consumed by dogs. It’s not just an urban legend here. There are poisonous compounds called methylxanthines in chocolate, which are stimulants that stop the digestive process of a dog. Diarrhea and vomiting can be caused by even a bit of chocolate, especially dark chocolate. Seizures, abnormal heart rhythm, and even death may be caused by a great amount of it.
Although cinnamon is not toxic to dogs, in fact, it is probably best to avoid it. The interior of the mouths of dogs may be disturbed by cinnamon and its oils, leaving them nervous and sick. It may lower the blood sugar of a dog too much, resulting in diarrhea, vomiting, increased or decreased heart rate, and even liver disease.
Garlic is part of the Allium family, much like onions, leeks, and chives, and is five times more harmful to dogs than the rest of the Allium plants. In dogs, garlic can cause anemia, causing side effects such as pale gums, high heart rate, fatigue, and collapse. Garlic and onion poisoning may have delayed signs, so if you think your dog may have eaten any of them, track them.
As fascinating of a treat as the ice cream is, it includes large amounts of sugar, so it is safest not to share with your dog. In addition, certain dogs have a lactose sensitivity. Freeze chunks of strawberries, raspberries, apples, and pineapples to give your dog a sweet, frozen treat in order to fully avoid milk.
Also, one of the most toxic foods for your dog is Macadamia nuts. Vomiting, elevated body temperature, inability to walk, and lethargy can be caused by Macadamia nuts, part of the Proteaceae family. Worse, the nervous system may be damaged by them. Never feed macadamia nuts to your dog.
