IF YOUR DOG EATS WHAT IT SHOULDN’T

DOGS EXPLORE WITH THEIR MOUTH:

No matter HOW cautious you are, it’s possible your dog can find and swallow what it shouldn’t.  It is a smart idea to keep the phone number of your LOCAL VET, the closest EMERGENCY CLINIC, and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (888) 426-4435 where you know it in an emergency!

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #6

MILK and OTHER DAIRY PRODUCTS:

On a hot day it may be tempting to share your ice cream cone with your dog.  If your dog could, it would thank you for not doing so.  Milk and milk-based products are simply not good for your dog!

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #4

COFFEE, TEA, AND OTHER CAFFEINE:

Caffeine in large enough quantities can be fatal for a dog and….there is no antidote. Symptoms of caffeine poisoning include restlessness, rapid breathing, heart palpitations, muscle tremors, fits and bleeding.  Remember this includes coffee beans & grounds, cocoa, chocolate, colas, and stimulant drinks!  Should your dog accidentally consume these there is no substitute for professional veterinary care!
