We all love the way our little pup looks up while we are hogging onto something. And, more often than out, we throw them a bite or small portion of what we usually eat. But, do you have any clue as to what can this little pampering do to them? Here’s a list of the food items that can cause serious health problems to your dog. So, the next time you throw them something, don’t forget to do your homework.
Alcohol or Other Alcoholic Beverages
Wine, liquor, beer all contain alcohol. This can intoxicate your dog, resulting in a coma or even death. It affects the dog’s brain and liver the same way as it does the humans.
Persin, a content found in the seeds, leaves, bark and the fruit can cause diarrhoea and vomiting.

All forms of these ingredients, be it raw, powdered, dehydrated or cooked must not be given to your dog. It can destroy the red blood cells of your dog, causing anaemia.
Tea, coffee or other Caffeine

White chocolate, chocolate mulch, dark chocolate and unsweetened baking chocolate. It can cause vomiting, diarrhea excessive thirst, seizures and death.
Raisins and Grapes
Treating your dog with raisins and grapes can have serious implications. Even a small amount is capable of making them very ill. Vomiting is followed by depression and lethargy. It can even cause kidney failure.
Peaches and Plums
The seeds are the main cause of worry here. It can result in the inflammation of your dog’s small intestine or even intestinal obstruction.
Raw eggs have bacteria known as Salmonella, which can cause food poisoning. Also, due to the presence of an enzyme, the absorption of B vitamin gets difficult. Excessive feeding can even ruin your dog’s fur or coat.
Pretzels, Chips and other foods that contain a high level of salt must be kept away from dogs. It can lead to extreme thirst and urination and may even cause sodium ion poisoning. In severe cases, it can result in death.
Too much sugar has the same impact on dogs as humans. It results in dental problems, obesity and the possibility of diabetes.
