1.The Big No-Go
One treat that is potentially fatal to dogs, is chocolate. It contains stimulants such as theobromine and caffeine, which dogs cannot metabolize and thus leads to various medical complications that can be fatal. Xylitol may be considered a healthier alternative for humans, but for dogs it rapidly decreases blood sugar levels and triggers seizures.
Having a healthy, loving, energetic dog is one of life’s rewards. They are your best companions (when loved and treated well), they help keep you active, and they give you meaning and purpose. Your dog’s health is as important as yours because having a sickly animal is not cheap and no fun for anyone.
