Dangerous Foods for Dogs

There are a lot of dangerous foods out there!
Are you keeping your dog safe?

While Fido may look and act like he’s ready for your table scraps, the foods that you ingest are not necessarily good for a begging Fido. It’s easy to think of your dog as part of the family, he’s right there by your side, with your kids, at the game, watching TV, and of course, at the dinner table. However important your dog is to you and your family, when it comes to dinner (or any other meal) Fido can not ingest all of the same foods that you can. Dogs’ digestive and immune systems are very different from ours, and we must keep that in mind at all times!

Our friends at BarkPost shared the awesome, easy-to-use infographic that we posted above. This handy reference guide is great to keep around for you and your family to fact-check, as a reminder that dogs can not eat certain human foods as they are considered poisonous to your canine companion.
