Be aware of what “human” foods you give your animal. Chocolate cannot be processed by a dog’s liver because it has certain types of sweeteners that are toxic etc. Foods to avoid include: chocolate, onions, garlic, grapes, nuts, raisins, avocado and cooked bones. Medicines can also be dangerous to your pet and you should never give them any drugs not prescribed by your vet.
