Many people don’t give their dogs special dog food. They feed them with whatever they are having every day. This isn’t a bad thing, since dogs can eat almost everything that us humans do. But, there are a few foods that dogs should never eat or they should consume in moderation.The one food that we all know that dogs shouldn’t eat is chocolate and anything sugary. Dogs can easily attract diabetes, which can cause them to lose their eye sight. This is why dogs should eat very few proportions of sugary foods throughout their entire lives. Let’s see what else is a ‘no’ for a dog’s nutrition.

1. Beer

To some it might seem funny to get their dog drunk, but it is highly dangerous for their health. But if you want to drink along with your best 4-legged friend you can visit The Brandling Villa in South Gosforth, Newcastle, where they have designed a special dog beer.

2. Avocado

Avocado, according to scientists, contains a toxin called ‘persin’, which affects many animals’ health including dogs’. Its consumption may cause heart failure, so keep the guacamole away from your dog.

3. Xylitol

Xylitol is a sweetener that appears to be in baked goods, candy, gum, toothpaste and some diet foods. When consumed in big proportions, at first the dog may vomit and have seizures and eventually it can die of liver failure.

4. Chocolate

Since I already mentioned the reason chocolate is bad for your dog, I will advice you that if you want to give your dog chocolate, you should choose a kind of unsweetened or with 80% cocoa chocolate. You can avoid milk chocolate.
