5.Foods High In Fat

High-fat foods may cause your dog to suffer from diarrhea and vomiting. Another problem they may have is pancreatitis. Certain canine breeds are more susceptible to this than others – Shetland sheepdogs, miniature schnauzers and Yorkshire terriers. Don’t give your canine any fast food leftovers, greasy foods or junk food.

6.Fruit Toxins

There are certain fruits like plums, peaches and persimmons that contain seeds or pits, which can lead to small intestinal inflammation or even intestinal blockage. Plum and peach pits also have cyanide in them, poisonous to dogs and humans if broken apart and eaten.

Raisins and grapes may also lead to acute renal failure in your canine friend. When this happens, they may be unable to pee and filter toxins in their body. It’s not known why this happens, but too much of it can lead to deadly consequences for your animal

8.Mushrooms

Wild mushrooms may grow in your backyard or along the nature trail where you tend to walk your dog.  These mushrooms have toxins that can trigger an array of organ systems such as the brain, kidneys and liver.  With abnormalities in the nervous system, your dog may vomit, experience seizures, go into a coma or die.

10.Nuts

Nuts can be found in cookies and candies, and it’s food you shouldn’t give your pet. One of the more commonly searched items pet owners make is to find out of nuts are safe for their dogs. The answer is no. They’re not. Almonds, pistachios and non-moldy walnuts will cause their stomach to become upset, or they could suffer a blockage in their intestines or throat.  Plus, moldy peanuts can be deadly to animals. Some signs of nut ingestion include muscle loss, vomiting and lethargy.
