What should my dog not eat? Foods poisonous to dogs

“My dog has always just eaten whatever we have, and he’s now thirteen!” Obviously it’s possible for a dog to reach a ripe old age on food that isn’t specifically intended for dogs. Unfortunately, food intended for human consumption often contains too much sugar or salt for a dog. Which is bad for their teeth and kidneys. What’s more, there are certain things that are an absolute no-no for your dog, because they will present a health risk to him.

Beer
“But my dog loves beer!” He might like the taste, but please don’t give it to him. Alcohol can cause coma in dogs and be fatal.

Chocolate
Chocolate contains theobromine, a substance poisonous to dogs. It can cause diarrhoea, vomiting, anxiety and (in extreme cases) fits.

Chicken bones
Cooked chicken bones can splinter and cause choking or damage to the mouth. Please don’t assume that cooking the bones will make them soft, as it actually makes them more likely to splinter.

Garlic and onions
Garlic and onions contain thiosulphate, a substance that can irritate a dog’s digestive tract. It can also damage red blood cells and cause anaemia.

Grapes / raisins
Although fruit is not generally bad for dogs, it is better not to give them any grapes (nor, therefore, any raisins). They contain an as yet unidentified substance that is bad for the kidneys of both dogs and cats.

Raw eggs
It’s best not to give your dog any raw eggs. You see, these contain avidin, an anti-vitamin that adversely affects the metabolism of fats, sugar, amino acids and energy.

We testen ons voer niet in grote kille kennels. Sterker nog, we laten onze eigen en andermans huisdieren gewoon lekker thuis proeven.

We vinden het niet meer van deze tijd om plofkippen te werken en vlees uit megastallen te halen.
