Giving in to those puppy eyes and handing your canine buddies a treat seem pretty harmless. That is, if the human treat you’re giving them is 100% safe and non-toxic. Here is a list of foods that you should never be fed to your canine buddies – no matter how cute they act up.
- Grapes and Raisins
Grapes and raisins can cause lack of appetite, weakness, abdominal pain, dehydration and even kidney failure if fed to your dogs.
Xylitol is not only found in chewing gums but also in certain cookie brands. Xylitol is highly toxic leading to a drastic decrease in blood sugar in dogs which then leads to severe liver failure even at the smallest amount.
- Onions and Garlic
Onions and garlic cause a decrease in red blood cells in dogs when consumed at certain amounts. Of course they are good for human but definitely NOT for your dog!
- Macadamia Nuts and other nuts
Nuts generally cause vomiting in dogs. It can also lead to weakness, lethargy and depression.
- Coffee, Chocolate and Tea
These three often contain caffeine which can are highly toxic to dogs. These food items can cause vomiting and hyperactivity and can lead to heart arrhythmias and seizures in dogs.

Cooked bones are very much prone to breaking and can obstruct or lacerate your dog’s digestive system.
