Foods to Avoid Feeding Your Dog

The holidays will soon be here and kitchens across America will be filled with tantalizing aromas and the feelings of goodwill that come with those delicious smells. It wasn't all that long ago that dogs ate our leftovers before the advent of specially formulated canned and dry dog foods. However, there are some foods which may well be part of your holiday fare that you should not feed your dog.

Here is a list of foods that should be avoided:

Chocolate, avocados, caffeine, alcohol, onions and garlic, some bones (those that can splinter like the ones found in poultry), pitted fruit (in particular, the pits), walnuts and macadamia nuts, sugary foods, greasy and fatty foods. Grapes and raisins may also be included on this list although in small quantities, they may be fine - same for small quantities of garlic.

Keep a close eye on your pets during the holidays - many times, food will be left out for your guests to sample and enjoy and sometimes unknowing children (or even adults!) who think they're giving your dog a special treat will give her something that may cause her to become very ill. An emergency trip to the vet will not brighten your holidays so use common sense, pay attention and enjoy!
