Food for Dogs to Avoid

The Holidays are rapidly approaching, and you know what that means... lots of holiday eating! Modern Dog Magazine compiled an extremely helpful list of foods not to feed your 4 legged friends. Some of these may be no-brainers, but some may surprise you! Even a small amount of certain foods could make your dog very sick, so keep your dog happy and healthy this year and don't feed your dog any of these food items:
  • Alcohol
  • Avocado
  • Bones (from fish, poultry or other meats)
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee and tea
  • Fat trimmings
  • Grapes and/or raisins
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions, garlic, chives
  • Persimmons, plums
  • Potato leaves and stems
  • Raw eggs
  • Raw fish
  • Salt
  • Sugary foods and drinks
  • Xylitol and other artificial sweeteners
  • Yeast Dough
