My girlfriend, Cynthia, makes the most delicious dishes I’ve ever tasted and that is saying a lot since this is coming from a very picky eater. Anyway, a while ago she made braised chicken and I enjoyed every bit of it, and of course I decided to give a little bit of it to Alex. When she was younger, Alex could eat anything and it would not bother her stomach, but as she grew older her stomach became more and more sensitive, therefore what she gets mostly now days is chicken, rice and yogurt. I am pretty sure many of you also like to share your food with your dogs, but you need to make sure that it does not upset her stomach and also that it is not hazardous to her health. Here are some foods you need to avoid when feeding your dog:
- Macadamia nuts
- Grapes and raisins
- Onion and onion powder
- Raw bread dough
- Xylitol – found sugar free products and human toothpaste
Don’t take me wrong. You do can share some foods with your dog, but always start with a very small portion of it in order for the transition, or should I say addition since you are adding this to her kibble, to be pleasant for your dog and it does not throw her stomach out of whack. Bon appetite!
