good dog, bad human. Just because you love them like family doesn’t mean you need to feed them everything the family is eating. Stop feeding Fido these five human foods we already know about chocolate, but bacon is also on the list. Ah, veterinarian tells Fox News. Fatty foods like bacon are bad for dogs because they can cause gastrointestinal problems and pancreatitis. The same expert says. When your dog has one small piece of bacon that’s like eating 13 pieces of bacon for humans, don’t give them cooked bones. They can splinter and hurt their mouth, gets stuck in their throat or puncture something important on the way down. Avoid giving them garlic. The American Kennel Club says garlic is toxic to dogs and can lead to anemia with side effects like weakness, elevated heart rate and pale gums. You’re not doing Fido any favors by letting him eat ice cream. The A K C says ice cream is packed with sugar, and some dogs are lactose intolerant. Avoid milk and freeze fruits instead, like strawberries, apples and pineapples. Just don’t give them grapes. Frozen or not, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says grapes can cause kidney failure. Same thing goes for raisins. These snacks can be fatal if your dog is a beggar, the veterinarian tells Fox News, it’s okay to give your pet healthy snacks like lean meats, apples, cooked eggs and carrots, which can protect against cataracts and heart disease.
