Taste of the Dinner Plate


If your pet is anything like mine, she is ALWAYS watching me eat! Which then makes me feel sorry for her so I give her a nibble of table food. We strongly recommended not starting to feed from the table, but majority already have. There are certain food you MUST steer clear of, major consequences involved after ingesting said food. Most lead to secondary issues such as vomiting and diarrhea, which can lead to other major health issues.

Alcohol- can lead to intoxication, coma or possible death

Avocado (contains persin)- which can cause vomiting and/or diarrhea

Caffeine- toxic to heart and nervous system. can lead to vomiting and diarrhea

Chocolate- toxic to heart and nervous system, can possibly lead to death

Dairy- too much can cause diarrhea

Fatty Foods- too much can cause Pancreatitis

Grapes- will cause kidney failure

Medications (ex. Tylenol, Advil)- can lead to GI ulcers, kidney failure or death
