Nuts


Squirrels love them, dogs like them, but they can be bad for your pet. Nuts are high in fat and can cause your pooch to vomit and have diarrhea.

Bones


Although we all see our doggie friends in our minds eating big juicy bones, the truth of the matter is that bones that don’t splinter or break up can cause your dog to choke.

8.
Tobacco


We all know it’s bad for us, so why would we give our pet nicotine to cause him problems.  Nicotene runs through a dogs system releasing harmful toxins that might kill him.

7.
Onions


Those look yummy, but if you share these tasty morsels with your pooch he might die. Onions and anything from the onion family causes the red blood cells damage and anemia. Raw onions can actually cause liver damage.

6.
Pits


No, I’m not talking about Pitbulls, I’m talking about the pits from fruits. This should be a no brainer, we wouldn’t eat them so why would we feed them to our dog. These can cause obstructions in the digestive track.

Rhubarb Leaves


These toxic plants leave oxalates and will cause nervous and urinary system problems along with digestive problems.

4.
Raw Dough


Raw dough can ferment in the stomach and cause alcohol toxicity. When the dough rises and expands it causes gasses in the digestive system.

3.
Popcorn


This yummy snack can cause upper airway obstruction.

2.
Raw Eggs


Although we have all heard that raw eggs are good for a dogs skin and coat, it’s a myth. Raw eggs contain avidin which is known to decrease the absorption of biotin which might cause problems with the skin and coat. Eggs can also contain Salmonella.

1.
Chocolate


Although everyone knows the dangers of chocolate in dogs, it has to be stated again. Just say no to that sugary confection for your pooch. The methylxanthine alkaloids in chocolate cause serious problems including strokes, choking, and can kill your dog.
