    It’s the nature of most dogs that chocolate can’t feed dogs greedy. Now the quality of life of dogs is getting better and better, so the food they can touch is becoming more and more diversified. It’s just that not all food is delicious for dogs. Some things need to be considered before eating. Otherwise, they may make a big mistake. For this point, the owner also needs to pay more attention to know which food can be fed and which can’t, which is a required course that every owner should do well.
    1. It’s needless to say that even many people who don’t have dogs know that dogs can’t eat chocolate after being exposed to it. Chocolate contains theobromine, which is similar to caffeine. Most foods containing theobromine are toxic to dogs, especially dogs.
    2. Grapes. Most people usually feed their dogs some fruits, but not all fruits are beneficial for dogs. Grape is a kind of fruit that is harmful to dog’s health. There have been many cases of dogs poisoned by eating a lot of grapes, so be careful. The onion contains a kind of component called n-propyldisulfide, which can oxidize hemoglobin to Heinz’s corpuscles after dogs eat it. The reticuloendothelial system engulfs a large number of red blood cells containing Heinz’s corpuscles, causing acute hemolytic anemia and damaging bone marrow. Generally, dogs weighing 15-25kg can produce severe anemia within 7-8 days after eating a medium-sized onion. In 1-2 days after eating, red or dark red hemoglobinuria was excreted, vomiting, diarrhea, depression, palpitation, splenomegaly and other symptoms were found.
    3. Long term feeding a small amount of onion can make the dog appear chronic poisoning, showing gangrene and anemia. If the dog is poisoned by onion, the light one can recover naturally by stopping feeding onion. Patients with severe hemolysis should be given glucose, Ringer’s solution, and hypodermic injection of cardiotonic agents such as analgesics, diuretics (furosemide), and blood transfusion if necessary.
    4. Salt. In fact, we should also feed a little salt food to our dogs at ordinary times, because eating a proper amount of salt is good for their health, but we must pay attention to controlling the amount. Once the salt is too much, it will do great harm to the dog’s health. In addition, eating too much salt has a great adverse effect on the dog’s skin.
    5. Chicken bone or other small bones. In our opinion, it’s very natural for dogs to eat bones, but it’s not the case. These bones are not easy to digest, and they are very easy to get stuck in the dog’s throat, which makes it difficult to eat and water. The serious situation must be solved by surgery, so it’s often not worth the loss.
    6. Yeast. Yeast will expand in warm and humid environment, so when the dog eats it, yeast may expand in its stomach, cut off the blood flow, causing breathing difficulties. The milk we drink should not be fed to the dog.
    7. Raw egg. In our opinion, the nutrition of the next raw egg is better. So some owners will feed the dog with raw egg, but the raw egg may cause Salmonella poisoning to the dog, so don’t give your dog raw egg.
    8. Milk. This situation usually occurs in puppies. In fact, dogs, like us, also have lactose intolerance, so they are not used to drinking milk, and suddenly let dogs eat, which is likely to cause diarrhea and laxity in dogs. In general, it is not recommended to feed dogs with milk we drink.
