Dogs will eat almost anything. (See pic).

Here’s a list of What Not to Feed your dog:

  1. Chocolate
  2. Coffee
  3. Alcohol
  4. Avocado*
  5. Macadamia Nuts
  6. Grapes
  7. Raisins
  8. Raw Yeast Bread Dough
  9. Anything with Xylitol (sugar free chewing gum)
  10. Onions/ garlic

Why the * on avocado?

Nearly every list I’ve seen shows avocados as a food to avoid. While avocados can be fatal to birds & bunnies, dogs can eat them. Avocados can cause vomiting & a case of the runs, but they are a great source of essential fat. (Fat = Fuel).

Just don’t let Precious snarf down a wHOLe one, which could cause an obstruction & an expensive surgery. We’re trying to avoid that sort of thing, right?

(What’s that I said about moderation & balance?)

Peel it, remove the pit, mash it up with some sea salt. A little guac-er for your cocker! (no onions, tho. Read the wHOLe list).

Everything else listed can kill your dog. Seizures, tremors, liver & kidney failure. It’s hard to say how much it would take to do it. Don’t try to find out. Just know that it can and has happened.

I’ve known stupid fraternity boys who think it’s hilarious to get a dog drunk. Report those fools to the police.

And if you think your dog has gobbled up a bag full of something he shouldn’t have, call:

Animal Poison Control Center. 1-800-213-6680.

Be safe!

pugs & kisses,
