9 Dangerous Foods Your Dog Should Never Eat


Avocados aren't dog-friendly due to digestive issues, and excessive consumption may lead to cardiovascular problems.


Alcohol causes harm to dogs; may lead to depression, breathing difficulties, tremors, coma, and death. If consumed, seek help from the Animal Poison Control Center or a veterinarian right away.


Sugar is unnecessary and dangerous for dogs as it can lead to hyperactivity, weight gain, and diabetes even in small amounts found in candy due to sugars and preservatives.


Caffeine can cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures and even death in dogs.


Cooked and bird bones are dangerous for dogs, while uncooked livestock bones are safe.
