Everybody with a pet can probably recognize themselves in the following. While watching a movie for example, your beloved pet is watching you eat a little snack. Of course you can not withhold him or her from giving a little piece of the snack, but that is when you go wrong. Animals can not take everything, so choose wisely what you give your pet. Not even a little bit The biggest mistake people often make is just to give a little bit to their dog or cat, because they think it will not hurt them. It does not matter if you weigh it or use a measuring scoop, some foods are just not healthy to give to your pet. Not even a little bit, it can hurt or kill them. In a lot of households is some confusion of what you can and can not give your pet. Overall it is for the best of your animal not to give him anything. The begging will stop and they will continue eating their own food. Which foods are really bad? In the following list you will find some foods that are a no-go for your animal. Alcohol, coffee or milk; one of the biggest mistakes still is that a bowl of milk is good for your cat. What people do not know is the fact that adult cats are lactose intolerant. It can really mess up the indigestion of a cat. It does not seem that the other two need explanation. Still there are people who give their pets coffee or alcohol. That is bad for us so even worse for such a small animal. Avocado; especially for birds avocado is a terrible vegetable. It contains a poison called persin which can cause severe stomach-aches. Onions, garlic and salt; do not give your animal food that contains garlic or salt. Especially cats will suffer a lot, kidney failure and anaemia are the consequence. Grapes; a nice little piece of fruit, but for dogs very dangerous. Where garlic and salt can cause kidney failure and anaemia, so do grapes with a dog. Boiled bones and animal fat; when you give your dog a bone, make sure it is not a boiled one. First off the chance of little fragments of the bone coming is very high. Second of all the fat on a bone can cause pancreas problems. Chocolate; probably one of the most well-known on the list. Chocolate contains numerous toxins we humans can handle but a lot animals can not. Never give your pet a piece of chocolate. Now you know what you must not give your pet. Make sure you do not, because you also want to give your pet a long and happy life.
