It’s no secret: dogs love food and most dogs seem especially interested in whatever they see us eating.
Although sharing small amounts of “human food” with your dog on occasion isn’t usually cause for concern, it’s important to note that many foods have the potential to be extremely poisonous for dogs. What’s worse is that the effects of food toxicity in dogs aren’t always obvious, which can lead many people to assume that certain foods are okay or safe for their dogs when, in fact, they’re anything but.
For many of us, our dogs are family, and that’s why knowing which foods dogs can and can’t eat is extremely important.
Just because a certain food is healthy for us, doesn’t mean it is safe for dogs to eat.
The infographic below highlights some of the most common foods that have the potential to be toxic for dogs. However, please bear in mind that each dog is different, and also remember that this is not an exhaustive list. If you’re in doubt about whether a particular food is safe for your dog to eat, it’s always better to err on the side of caution.
Be sure to ask your veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns about your dog’s diet.
