5 Toxic Foods to Avoid Feeding
Celebrations Can Lead to Accidental Poisoning
From backyard barbecues to pool parties and other party-oriented gatherings, celebrations are an opportunity for our dogs and cats to be exposed to food that piques their curiosity: juicy baby back ribs, heavenly-smelling burgers, buttery fish and other drool-worthy goodies.
While you think you may be treating your pet to a nibble here and there, you may be accidentally poisoning your furry companion.
To avoid a visit to the veterinary ER over the weekend, keep these popular foods out of your pet's reach.
Foods that are high in fat can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Pancreatitis often follows the ingestion of fatty meal in dogs. Certain breeds like miniature schnauzers, Shetland sheepdogs, and Yorkshire terriers appear to be more susceptible to a bout of pancreatitis than other breeds. Fight the temptation to share fast food leftovers, junk food or foods cooked in grease with your dog, such as burgers, hot dogs, ribs, steak, pork chops and fried chicken.
