A handy checklist of foods you should never feed your dog

Posted by

Here at Tails HQ, we’ve got so many dogs running around the office on a daily basis that we’ve really got to be careful about what food we leave lying around. Lots of our dogs are keen on stealing things from our desks (we’re looking at you, Monty) so it’s important that we’re aware of the foods that are dangerous for dogs to eat. To help us remember what’s a definite no, we put this poster up in the office kitchen so that we’re always aware.

Here’s the poster broken down into a handy infographic to help you remember too. Save it, screenshot it or pin it to Pinterest so that you never forget.

Give the dog a bone?

Even though the nursery rhyme does say to give the dog a bone, it can actually be quite a risky thing to feed a dog. Bones are a choking risk and can pierce or cause blockages in your dog’s digestive system. Raw meaty bones that aren’t prepared or stored hygienically can carry bacteria that can cause stomach upset in dogs. Cooked bones are more prone to splintering as they become brittle during the cooking process.

If you think your dog has eaten any of these items and seems unwell or experiences vomiting or diarrhoea, it’s always wise to get your vet to check them over.

  1. Hey Emily, this list is very helpful! I’m going to print this, and leave it on the refrigerator as a reminder for everyone in my household.
