Potentially Dangerous Foods

Pets have sensitive stomachs and gastrointestinal tracts. While many pet owners think by feeding their beloved pet table scraps is showing affection, it may actually cause a serious medical reaction. There are numerous “human” foods that cause severe stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting for pets and should be entirely avoided when possible.

The following foods are harmful to pets’ digestive tracts and overall well-being: 

  • Alcohol
  • Almonds
  • Avocados
  • Baby food
  • Chives
  • Chicken bones
  • Chocolate
  • Citrus
  • Coffee
  • Cocoa powder
  • Dough containing yeast
  • Eggs
  • Fat trimmings
  • Fish bones
  • Fruit seeds/pits
  • Garlic
  • Grapes
  • Liver
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Milk
  • Mushrooms
  • Nutmeg
  • Onions
  • Pistachios
  • Raisins
  • Raw eggs
  • Raw or undercooked meat
  • Rhubarb
  • Salt
  • Tea
  • Tomato
  • Tuna
  • Walnuts 
  • Xylitol (sugar-free sweetener found in gum, mints, candies, and some brands of peanut butter)

If you are unsure whether a food is poisonous to your pet, please consult the veterinarian prior to feeding it to your animal. Should your pet accidently consume one or multiple of these foods, contact our office immediately.
