FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #10

SUGARY FOODS and DRINKS:

Too much sugar can do the same things to dogs that it does to humans.  It can lead to obesity, dental problems, and possibly the onset of diabetes.

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #9

SALT:

It’s not a good idea to share salty foods like chips or pretzels with your dog.  Eating to much salt can cause excessive thirst and urination  and lead to sodium ion poisoning. Symptoms of to much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, elevated body temperature, and seizures.  It can also be fatal.

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #8

RAW MEAT and FISH:

Raw meat and raw fish, like raw eggs, can contain bacteria that cause food poisoning.  In addition, certain kinds of fish such as salmon, trout, shad, or sturgeon can contain a parasite that causes “fish or salmon poisoning disease.”  This disease CAN be fatal within two weeks.  Thoroughly cooking the fish will kill the parasite and protect your dog.  Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters wants all pets to stay happy and  healthy!
