5 Foods Your Dog Can’t Eat, And 5 Substitutions They Will Absolutely Love
Dogs CANNOT eat fruit seeds and cores
Make sure when feeding your dogs fruits like apples, pears, persimmons, peaches and plums, to get rid of pits and seeds. Persimmon seeds can cause inflammation of the small intestine, while apple and pear seeds, and peach and plum pits contain cyanide which can poison both humans and dogs. Fortunately we know not to eat them but dogs don’t.
Dogs CAN eat fruit salads
As long as you feed your dog the meat of fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, apples, melons, and bananas it’ll be a sweet treat for them to safely eat!
Dogs CANNOT eat yeast
We all know before we bake bread, the dough needs to rise and yeast won’t make any exceptions of when and where it’ll rise, especially your dog’s stomach. If consumed by your dog, yeast will swell inside and the dough will begin to stretch your dog’s abdomen and can cause severe pain. Yeast also ferments the dough to make it rise, producing alcohol which can lead to possible alcohol poisoning.
Dogs CAN eat pasta
Made with simple ingredients such as flour, water, and eggs, as long as your noodles are cooked it’s safe eats for your pooch pal.
Dogs CANNOT eat raw meat, fish, bone and fat trimmings
We’ve all heard the nursery rhyme that goes “give the dog a bone,” but have we really thought about what bones, fat trimmings, and raw meat and fish can do to canine tummies? Unfortunately, what seems like an all-time doggie treat is more harmful than enjoyable. Bones and fat trimmings can cause pancreatitis in dogs and raw meat and fish both contain bacteria that can cause food poisoning. So avoid using your dog as a garbage disposal if you want to keep him happy and healthy.
Dogs CAN eat tuna
Surprisingly tuna is no longer a delicacy for just cats. Tuna is great for Fido too because it’s healthy and packed with protein, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids.
