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!

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #7

RAW EGGS:

There are two problems with giving your dog raw eggs.  The first is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli.  The second is that an enzyme in raw eggs interferes with the absorption of a particular B vitamin.  This can cause skin problems as well as problems with your dog’s coat if raw eggs are fed for a long time.  Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters wants you to keep that special member of the family healthy!
