Many people feed their dogs with human foods, either from table scraps or as a treat.Others mistakenly believe that feeding your dog with food that humans love is also a way to show how much you love them. Your loving gestures could actually be harming your dog.
Unfortunately many of the foods we would see as treats may cause injury and damage internal organs. Spoiling your dog with a little treat could even be jeopardizing your dog’s life.
Dogs are also notorious for getting into garbage and eating whatever they can find. Try to dispose of any garbage securely to minimize the risk of your dog eating something that could be potentially harmful.
