Save Your Pets! Avoid Giving These Snacks and Food
- Chocolate and Caffeine Products
- Chocolate poisoning is more common in dogs compared to other animals. They contain the chemical Methylxanthines, known to be lethal to dogs and other livestock. This harmful substance is likewise present in coffee and other caffeinated food and drinks. When ingested, pets may experience urination, increase heart rate, seizures, and even death.
- Salty Food and Snacks
- Salt poisoning is also frequent in dogs consuming salty food and snacks in large quantities. Excessive salt is bad for your pets. It‘s unsafe to give them snacks like chips, pretzels, and even pet treats containing a significant load of sodium.
- Pets may “go nuts” with nuts. Dog owners must be aware on the long list of nuts imposing risks to pets. These seeds can cause stomach upset and poisoning, so make sure these salty snacks are out of reach from your dog. Almond, macadamia, walnuts, Hickory nuts, pecans, and pistachio nuts are some of them. Most of them contain a great amount of fat, and some components are unhealthy for your furry friends.
- Xylitol Products
- Candies, gum, groceries and baked goods with xylitol are a no-no for your dogs. It will cause hypoglycemia and even liver failure. Xylitol may also be present in toothpaste, so use pet toothpaste when brushing your dog.
