When feeding your pet from the table, the first thing to remember is that pets can not eat all the foods that we eat. Pets have a more sensitive digestive tract and their liver and kidneys can not break down the toxins the same way we do.

According to the ASPCA, people food to avoid feeding your pets include:

  • Chocolate, Coffee, Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Avocado
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Grapes & Raisins
  • Yeast Dough
 
  • Raw/Undercooked Meat, Eggs and Bones
  • Xylitol
  • Onions, Garlic, Chives
  • Milk
  • Salt

The illustration below shows the most dangerous foods that dogs should not eat and why.
