Social network for pugs and their people.
Yes, grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure. We have two pugs in our hospice care at our resuce who were given grapes as a treat. So sad. :0(
Good to hear they are OK, but take them off of grapes. :0(
hi, thanks for this list, ive heard lots of different things that shouldnt be given to dogs, of course the usual (chocolate, salt, grapes, onion) but ive also heard anything from the onion family (ie. garlic) yet most vets and sources say to add garlic to dogs food to keep fleas at bay???
My pup LOVES coffee...she's had a fascination with it since we got it (trying to shove her head into our cups to drink it) so we made her a de-caf coffee with puppy milk and she LOVED LOVED LOVED it. we have only given it to her once though to see what she'd do....
is it only the caffeine in the coffee that is bad for them, or the bean itself also? we used de-caf cos i know caffeine isnt good for them and puppy milk, cos theyre not supposed to have lactose (same as me really)
I'm curious to know about the coffee also.
OMG....potatoes and avocados, too? I'm learning so much with this discussion. Thank you so much pugslife friends. :0(
The bad stuff in sugarless gum is also used in many other products of candy, cake, cookies etc.. My Tia got into some gum but thankfully only her liver enzymes elevated slightly after I rushed her to the vet and they made her throw up.
Also many houseplants are poisonous as well.
I am wondering about the potatoes? some pet foods contain potatoes (actually alot do)
I didn't realize that coffee was bad for the dogs--not that we give it to Frank, but he loves to get into the garbage can (when it's full) & usually coffee grounds are on the top!
What about blueberries & cucumber slices? Are those on the "safe"list. And just to clarify: these are the things he gets off the floor, not what I purposely toss to him! Try as I might, I can be a messy cook!
