5. Sweets and candies
Various candies and confectionery containing sugar are harmful to the dog not only because of possible dental risks, but also because of the addition of weight gain and diabetes. In addition, many sweets and sweets contain xylitol which is toxic to the dog and can cause serious liver damage, a lowering of blood glucose levels, as well as central nervous system problems such as loss of coordination and spasms.
4. Onions and garlic
Onions and garlic can damage the red blood cells of dogs and cause haemolytic anaemia in the long run. A few days after intake, they cause vomiting, diarrhea and dark urine. Also be careful not to give the dog homogenized for children where onion powder is present as a flavouring.
3. Potato shoots and unripe tomatoes
Unwrought tomatoes and potato shoots are toxic because they contain a toxin, called solanine, which dogs cannot metabolize. If your dog takes them regularly, it develops digestive problems and manifests tachycardia, tremors, fatigue and restlessness.
Avocado is harmful to dogs because it contains persin, a fungicide toxin that causes digestive problems. So no avocado or guacamole sauce, if we want to avoid stomach problems in Fido.
1. Chocolate and cocoa
Chocolate is dangerous for dogs, especially dark chocolate because it contains theobromine, a substance toxic to animals that causes excessive thirst, tremors and irregular heartbeat. In the most serious cases, it even leads to internal haemorrhage and death of the dog: only 50 grams of dark chocolate are enough to poison a small dog.
