While we know it can be hard to ignore those puppy dog eyes that stare at you as you eat your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Take a second before you surrender to your adorable fur friends and consider if what they’re about to eat might be poisonous to them.
It’s important to remember to never give your pets the following:
- Chicken bones
- Grapes and raisins
- Onions, garlic, and chives
- Cooked bones (because there could be splinters and cause internal damage)
- Macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts and pecans
What foods are safe for dogs?
