Dog Food NO NO

Foods your dog should never, ever eat include:
  • Chocolate
  • Mushrooms, especially but not only wild mushrooms
  • Broccoli (though some experts think a little broccoli is good for the dog, isothiocyanate in this vegetable has been known to kill livestock, and definitely causes gastrointestinal problems in smaller animals.)
  • Grapes or raisins, sultanas, currants (these are all poison to a dog).
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Avocado
  • Certain gums
  • Some sweeteners, like xylitol, found in sugarless candies
  • Tylenol
  • Alcoholic beverages, especially beer; hops are a poison to canines
  • Cooked bones
  • Coffee (ground, beans, chocolate-covered espresso beans)
  • Moldy or spoiled foods
  • Salt
  • Yeast dough
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Fatty foods
  • Milk (you can feed lactose free milk or milk specially formulated for dogs)
  • Raw eggs
  • Raw or undercooked meat (unless you are a BARF expert)
  • Canned food (except those meant for dogs)
  • Corn, soy, and wheat (these are the three of the biggest culprits as far as food allergies in dogs goes - Itchy, red, flakey skin, and a dull coat are sign of food allergies)
Meats You Shouldn't Feed
Meats that can cause trichinosis are a no no to dogs. Ok, you probably don't find those listed meat around in Singapore except pork but well, it better to know right?
  • bear
  • pork
  • wolf
  • lynx
  • seal
  • walrus
  • wolverine
  • ground squirrels
  • fox (arctic and red)
Vegetable You Shouldn't Feed
Stay away from nightshade vegetables as some say they can cause skin problems and small sores in and around the mouth area. They are known to aggravate gastrointestinal problems, increase intestinal gas (like we need more of this), and cause indigestion. It may also be a factor in arthritis, stiff legs, and in calcium problems.

There a whole list of them but I'll list down some of the common ones:
  • Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet and hot peppers
  • Eggplant
  • Paprika
  • Tabasco
  • Onions / Onions powder (the thiosulphate in them - the chemical that makes onions and garlic stinky - can cause haemolytic anemia, which will kill your dog slowly)
  • Garlic / Garlic powder (you can add a small amount to your dog's food, but it also contains thiosulphate and too much can kill.)
