Most, if not all dog owners have a list of food their pooch is not allowed to eat. Chocolate being the first that comes to mind, but same goes for garlic and grapes. Certain foods can be very harmful, while others can cause less severe symptoms. Still, you should be careful when feeding your four legged friend anything from the table.
So it’s good to be reminded of holiday treats not to feed your pal Barkley, after all, they only come around once a year. With Easter this weekend, pet owners are being warned not to feed their dogs hot crossed buns, that’s right, no Easter baking for Rufus.
Raisin and sultanas found in the buns can cause sudden kidney failure in dogs AND cats. A toxic agent in the fruit can also lead to diarrhea, vomiting and extreme lethargy.
If you didn’t know, now you know!
