What human foods are bad for my dog?
If you like to share your food with your dog, there's nothing wrong with that. Its nice to make them "feel" apart of the family. However some foods are very harmful to your four-legged beggars.
Foods NOT to give you dog and WHY:
Avocado - The leaves, seeds, fruit, and bark contain persin, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
Bones from fish - Can cause obstruction or laceration of the digestive system.
Cooked/Baked Poultry, or other meat sources - Can cause obstruction or laceration of the digestive system.
Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, and other caffeine - Contain caffeine, theobromine, or theophylline, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea and be toxic to the heart and nervous systems.
Mushrooms - Can contain toxins, which may affect multiple systems in the body, cause shock, and result in death.
Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) - Contain sulfoxides and disulfides, which can damage red blood cells and cause anemia. Cats are more susceptible than dogs. Garlic is less toxic than onions.

Always remember EVERYTHING is moderation.
