Do You Know What Your Pet Is Eating?

If you’ve ever eaten something that doesn’t agree with you then you know it takes only a bit of time for you to realize that you should not have put that in your mouth! Sometimes it’s hard enough for us to have the discretion we need when trying to avoid an adverse effect such as food poisoning, a stomach ache, headache, etc…

Our animals usually know by second nature what to stay away from, unless it’s been offered by one of their human best friends or they are desperately playing around in the garbage! Here is a list of eight items best to be avoided by dogs, cats and/or birds!

1.   Xylitol — poisonous to dogs (increases insulin secretion, resulting in lower blood sugar levels)

2.   Garlic/onions – poisonous to cats and dogs (damages red blood cells, causing anemia)

3.   Grapes/raisins — poisonous to cats and dogs (damages the kidneys)

4.   Chocolate – poisonous to cats, dogs and birds (stimulates the nervous system and heart)

5.    Avocados — poisonous to cats, dogs but especially birds (contains persin which damages the heart)

6.    Macadamia nuts – poisonous to dogs (causes muscle and nervous system complications)

7.    Alcohol – poisonous to cats, dogs and birds (depresses the nervous system)

8.    Raw yeast/bread dough –poisonous to cats, dogs and birds (fermentation of yeast causes alcohol pois

If you think your animal did digest something poison call the ASPCA / Animal Poison Control Center open 24/7 @ 888-426-4435.

  4. I just wanted to let you know that I have been studying for just a few months on and off and I would like to sign up for the day by day feed. I am not to laptop good so I’ll give it a try however I’ll need some assistance. This can be a terrific find and I’d hate to lose contact, and maybe by no means find it again. Anyway, thanks once more and I look forward to posting again someday!

  5. Good points. I feel good about getting away from dog food off the shelf too. Imagine eating processed food with preservatives your whole life! A good alternative is Dr. Harvey’s. It’s fresh with lots of beneficial herbs, grains and veggies. I add protein such as beans, tofu, lentil and every once in a while chicken for my dog. She’s mostly vegan and runs faster than ever!
