1. Food scraps
The stew of the food was delicious, the meat of the stew I will not tell you, and what to say about that spaghetti (of which you always end up making a considerable amount).
Your dog is not a fool, and if he could speak, he would prove you right, you only have to see how he drools … but the truth is that the remains are not healthy for them: think about your body mass and your dog, you may be overweight. The fat from that food will not saturate your arteries (unless you abuse it), but your four-legged friend can cause obesity problems, and this involves many risks to your health: kidney and heart disorders.
Human food usually contains a large amount of fat, which can lead to pancreatitis. Besides, the condiments that food can carry can cause severe gastroenteritis, ulcers, colitis …
2. Chipping Bones
“Nothing happens to my dog if I give him bones!” It depends on the bone. Some bones splinter easily, including chicken and rabbit, and should be avoided at all costs.
Avoid offering small bones or those that splinter when broken, which can dig into his throat, causing perforation of the stomach or intestine, and even death.
The ones that you can give him are round beef bones, such as those of the knee and hip, or with pieces of long bones such as marrow that serve as a toy and clean and strengthen your teeth.

If the dog eats juice, symptoms such as behavioral change, excitement, depression, trouble breathing, excessive panting, the smell of alcohol in his mouth, and excessive urination may occur. They will get nervous and attack things, hurting even themselves. The only liquid recommended for your pet is water.
5. Milk and dairy products
Your grandmother has always told you, “give your dog a little cheese, and he will be your friend forever,” and he is right. What your grandmother may not know is that most animal species become lactose intolerant as soon as they leave the breastfeeding stage.
Most animals do not have the enzyme that is needed to dissolve the sugar in milk, and this can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other stomach problems.
6. Sausage and salted meats
Sunday night, you want to cook at a minimum, you get a little ham and a little sausage, your dog gives you cut-throat sheep’s eyes … and you feel so sorry that you give him a piece.
In addition to being high in fat, they are also very salty, which can cause severe stomach pain or other complications.
7. Onion and garlic
We all know that onion and garlic are very healthy and good for health … for HUMAN health.
Onions, in any format (raw, cooked, or powdered), are very toxic to dogs. They contain compounds that can cause damage to the dog’s digestive system, which is unable to digest them. They can also lead to poisoning. The symptoms that the dog can show after ingesting onion and garlic are vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, and allergic reactions.
Onion consumption can also lead to hemolytic anemia in dogs.
