While carrots are a great snack for our furry friends, other vegetables may not be.

Some veggies can cause your dog to vomit, lose appetite, and have blurry vision.

You can see a list of most commonly found vegetables in households that are harmful to our dogs!


Dogs do eat a wide variety of food, but there are some substances that are very toxic to them (but not to us!).

Few examples are chocolate, sugar, and dairy products. However, there are substances (like xylitol) that are found in many products today (because it's a type of sweetener), which is highly toxic to dogs and can cause seizure in dogs.

There is a list of dangerous substances to dogs you should pay attention to. This includes many pills and other meds, which you should always put somewhere high enough so dogs cannot get it.



I believe this is important to mention, as many fruits can cause negative symptoms in dogs but are easily accessible.

Grapes are common fruits grown in yards. They fell after some time and dogs can eat them. This is bad because it can cause the dog to vomit for hours.

Other fruits, such as avocado, can be dangerous because its seed can hurt the dog's throat or internal organs if he/she swallows it. Please pay attention to those fruits, there is more information on the link below.

Grapes are more serious than that. Symptoms may not be present but the dog can go into kidney failure a few days later. The nature of grape toxicity is not fully understood, some dogs suffer no symptoms, others will die without treatment. And the size of dog / amount consumed is not a relevant factor. A giant breed could die after eating just a few.

yet potatoes can also be very harmful, both raw and cooked. Because the dog's body just can't digest it And in no case do not give the dog bones, as they do in the movies, if you do not want to break his stomach!

Why is it that we don't see wild dogs, wolves, wild cats and lions with bone damage to their guts? I wonder how they have existed so long!

As far as I've researched, a dog's size is a factor that determines how sensitive it will react to certain substances. A smaller amount of such substances can be more dangerous for toy breeds rather than to bigger dogs. However, it can be deadly for both.

Dogs can chew most raw bones, as long as they are not sharp or too hard. However, cooked bones are harmful because they become "dry" and can get sharp when cracked. Therefore they can damage your dog's mouth, tongue, and throat. Raw bones have more nutrients than cooked bones as well.

Wild dogs, wolves, wild cats, and lions don't eat cooked bones - they eat them raw.

I completely agree with you!
