Your dog will have varying dietary needs throughout their life, but what you shouldn’t fill your dog will not change. From puppyhood to geriatric, you should consult with your Albuquerque veterinarian to make sure you are meeting your dog’s needs. You will want to make sure you are giving them quality dog food, or making your own with these great homemade dog food recipes.
Here is a list of food you cannot feed
your dog. It can make them simply have an upset stomach, or cause full toxicity leading to death. Below the list is a great infographic that you can print out, that will help you remember which foods are not ok to feed to your dog.
- Apple Seeds
- Candy, Chewing Gum, Toothpaste & Mouthwash
- Cat Food
- Coffee, Tea & Other Caffeine
- Cooked Bones
- Corn On The Cob
- Fat Trimmings
- Grapes & Raisins
- Human Vitamins
- Macadamia Nuts
- Milk & Dairy Products
- Onions & Chives
- Persimmon, Peaches & Plum Pits
- Raw Meat & Fish (though there is a debate on this if you are considering a raw food diet for your dog)
- Rhubarb & Tomato Leaves
Don’t forget that just because your dog wants it or likes it, does not mean it is safe or ok to feed them. Most dogs will eat almost anything. It is up to you to keep them safe and keep toxic food away from them.
If you think your dog has eaten anything toxic, please call your Albuquerque vet immediately.
