Good Dog, Bad Food: Foods for People That Are Bad for Your Dog

How are people and animals different when it comes to food?



What Foods Top the List For Dogs?

Raw meat, grapes, raisins, and currants, fried and fatty foods, moldy foods, onions, garlic, and chives (as well as onion and garlic powder), salty snacks, macadamia nuts, chocolate and xylitol (a sugar substitute used in many sugarless products).

A Word about Cats...

Why the focus on dogs? Cats are usually far pickier eaters than dogs and do not often get into trouble by eating foods that will harm them. However, cats are super-sensitive to onions, garlic, and onion and garlic powders, so make sure your cat has no opportunity to eat foods made with these ingredients.
