All dogs are the same when it comes to begging for any leftovers. But, dogs being our best friends, make it our responsibility to know what you can and can’t feed them in order for them to sustain a healthy lifestyle. It may come to you as a surprise but many kind of human foods, even those that are nutritious for us, are bad for your dog.
Below is the list of 16 foods that you should most definitely avoid feeding your dog. We should also remember that not all dogs are the same size or breed, so they can react differently to different human foods. That being said, even if you have been feeding your dog some of these human foods before reading this article, you should avoid doing so in the future.
Raw/Undercooked Meat, Eggs and Bones
Raw meat and raw eggs can contain bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli that can be harmful to pets and humans. Raw eggs contain an enzyme called avidin that decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin), which can lead to skin and coat problems. Feeding your pet raw bones may seem like a natural and healthy option that might occur if your pet lived in the wild. However, this can be very dangerous for a domestic pet, who might choke on bones, or sustain a grave injury should the bone splinter and become lodged in or puncture your pet’s digestive tract.
