NEVER FEED YOUR DOG ANY OF THESE:
Xylitol is an artifical sweetne that can be found in Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods. It can cause your dog's blood sugar to drop and can also cause liver failure. Early symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and coordination problems. Eventually, your dog may have seizures. Liver failure can happen within just a few days.
Avocados are not a good treat for your dog. Here's why, avocados have something called persin. It’s fine for people if you're not allergic. But too much might cause vomiting or diarrhea in dogs. If you grow avocados at home, keep your dog away from the plants. Persin is in the leaves, seed, and bark, as well as the fruit. Also, the avocado seed can become stuck in the intestines or stomach, and obstruction could be fatal.
Just six raw or roasted macadamia nuts can make a dog sick. So it is important that you keep your dog away from macadamia nuts and foods that have macadamia nuts in them. Look for symptoms like muscle shakes, vomiting, high temperature, and weakness in his back legs. Eating chocolate with the nuts will make symptoms worse, maybe even leading to death.
It’s not a good idea to share salty foods like chips or pretzels with your dog. This will make your dog seriously thirsty, and means a lot of trips to the fire hydrant that could lead to sodium ion poisoning. Symptoms of too much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, high temperature, and seizures. It may even cause death.
THESE ARE SAFE PEOPLE FOOD TO SHARE WITH YOUR DOG:
Some Fresh Fruits
Slices of apples, oranges, bananas, and watermelon make tasty treats for your dog. Take out any seeds first. Seeds, stems, and leaves can cause serious problems. DO not share peaches, plums, any stone fruit, grapes or raisins.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices. Even a plain baked potato is OK. Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
Cooked White Rice and Pasta
Dogs can eat plain white rice or pasta after it’s cooked. And, a serving of plain white rice with some boiled chicken can sometimes make your dog feel better when she's having stomach problems.
SAFE FEEDING FOR CATS
Cats Like Tuna But NOT too much...
Cats can be addicted to tuna, whether it's packed for cats or for humans. Some tuna now and then probably won't hurt. But a steady diet of tuna prepared for humans can lead to malnutrition because it won't have all the nutrients a cat needs. And, too much tuna can cause mercury poisoning. Remember the saying, "Honest as a cat when the meat's out of reach." Your cat will see an open can of tuna next to the sink as a dinner invitation.
NEVER LET YOUR CAT EAT:
Lilies, Holly, and Other Plants
While any kind of plant material may upset your pet’s stomach, some are more dangerous than others. A few common ones that can make them sick include lilies, mistletoe, holly, tulip and daffodil bulbs, azaleas, rhododendrons, and chrysanthemums. Even small amounts of certain types of lilies can cause kidney failure in cats.
