It is very hard to resist our pet’s tender expression, especially when it looks at the food on our dining table with delight. However, it is necessary not to give table food to your dog. Indeed, our foods can cause many health problems much more serious than just weight gain. Here are some foods that could be dangerous for your beloved pet.
Candy, chewing gum, toothpaste, bakery products, and some health foods are sweetened with an ingredient called xylitol. It can lower your dog’s blood sugar and can also cause liver failure. Early symptoms include vomiting, lethargy and coordination problems. Eventually, your dog may have convulsions after ingesting this ingredient. Liver failure can occur within a few days. If you see your dog eating sweet foods, be aware of his behavior.
