Forbidden Foods To Keep Away From Your Dogs

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, remember to keep the following forbidden foods from your dogs.

Turkey bone: Absolutely no no. While it does not splinter as easily as chicken bone, it still splinters and can cause obstruction or laceration of the digestive system.

Turkey skin: No because of high fat content and spices that can be on it. Spice in general is bad or even fatal to dogs. Dogs can suffer from a condition called pancreatitis when given too much fatty food.

Alcohol beverages: Can cause intoxication, coma, death. Symptoms of alcohol poisoning are slow respiratory rate, increased urination, wobbly movement, excited, uncharacteristic behavior, depression, disorientation, hypothermia, seizures and cardiac arrest.

Almond: Avoid nuts for dogs but a small amount of almond is fine according to the ASPCA. All nuts contain fats, which can lead to gastrointestinal upset such as vomiting and diarrhea. High fat contents can also potentially leads to inflammatory condition of the pancreas known as pancreatitis. Many commercially sold nuts are salted which in large volume could potentially cause sodium ion toxicosis.

Cake: People food is generally not good for dogs. Most human cakes are made with high content of dairy products such as butter and milk that dogs cannot tolerate very well. It also contains high amount of sugar. Some may also contain chocolate or cocoa powder that is all potentially fatal to dogs.

Fat food: Can cause pancreatitis. Signs include abdominal pain, acute onset of vomiting, and diarrhea. A hunched posture can be a sign of Pancreatitis pain.

Fat trimmings: Can cause pancreatitis. Signs include abdominal pain, acute onset of vomiting, and diarrhea. A hunched posture can be a sign of Pancreatitis pain.

Ham: Should never be given to dogs due to its high fat content. While some dogs might be fine when given minimal amount as treats, it could trigger an attack of pancreatitis in others that need to be more cautious with fat levels.

Ice cream: People food is generally not good for dogs. Ice cream is a dairy product and most dogs cannot tolerate dairy products very well. It also contains high amount of sugar. Some may also contain chocolate or cocoa powder that is all potentially fatal to dogs.

Sugar-free candies: May be sweetened with Xylitol that can cause serious, possible life threatening problems for dogs.
