Foods Harmful to Your Dog’s Health

In last week’s article, we discussed the different drinks we have regularly that can be harmful and downright poisonous to our canine friends.

This time around, we’re turning our attention to the everyday foods that can be potentially problematic. Even if the following items often end up on your plate, they should never make their way to your dog’s dish.


Cheese has really turned into a staple of the modern diet. It’s in so many dishes that often end up on the dinner table as well as delivery favorites such as pizza.

Unfortunately, cheese is still a dairy product. Give too much of it to your dog and he/she may have to deal with a prolonged bout of diarrhea.

Fatty Morsels of Meat

Eating fatty foods is not good for us and the same holds true for our dogs. Even if that hunk of fat you’re giving away is from a roast, it can still be bad for your pet. To be more specific, eating too much fat is bad for dogs because of the threat of pancreatitis.

Garlic and Onions

We’re grouping them together because garlic and onions are ingredients often used as the building blocks of dishes. Your dog would have to consume plenty of garlic and onions to be in any real trouble, but still, anything that can cause gastrointestinal and blood-related issues should be avoided.


The different types of nuts vary in how much of a threat they pose to dogs, but it’s still better to err on the side of caution with regards to them. Some nuts can bring about bouts of diarrhea, vomiting, and even pancreatitis, notes the ASPCA.

Salty Snacks Are Unsafe Human Foods

Some of the snacks we regularly enjoy such as potato chips and fries are bad for dogs because of how much salt they contain. Avoid using those foods as dog training aids because they can cause your pet to urinate too often. Vomiting and seizures are also possibilities in dogs that have consumed way too much salt.

Make sure your pet dog still gets enough exercise even when you are busy. We at TAILored Pet Services are more than happy to take on the dog-walking duties as you take care of other errands. Reach out to us by either calling 425-923-7791 or browsing our website.
