The Common Foods Dogs Can And Cannot Eat

Some pet owners seem to know little to nothing about which foods their dog can eat and which ones will make their pup feel ill, so they feed them random foods without a second thought.

And unless their dog becomes so ill they need to go to the vet they don't make the connection between these random foods and the fact that their dog always has an upset stomach.

So if you want to know what your dog can and cannot eat and avoid giving them a gut ache then this "Can My Dog Eat That?" infographic put together by Here Pup! is a perfect primer.

Even those "Nope" foods are fine in small amounts. Seems like fear-mongering to me.

“Feeding your dog a few nuts here and there is generally not a cause for concern, especially if the nuts are fresh,” said Dr. Carol Osborne, DVM

Chocolate isn't really of concern in small amounts.

"several well-known brands of pet food and nutritional supplements tout the avocado fruit and its oil as beneficial ingredients. And they are. It’s the pit, skin and leaves of the plant that primarily harbor a toxin"

"it’s unlikely that our household pets would consume enough to sicken them. As such, we tend to consider garlic more of a theoretical toxicity than an actual risk...Despite the near-certainty that garlic would cause a problem if ingested in large quantities, I’ve never heard of a case."
