    More people need to be aware of this, I see so many feeding any table scrap they want to feed the dog. Not good!

    I had always heard older people tell me to give my dogs onions or garlic to kill their fleas! Good to know that it’s not good for them!

    Didn’t know about apple seeds. We feed our dogs raw but no fruit..they don’t need it. Pumpkin is great for loose stools. Mine just played/aye with our pumpkins from halloween that weren’t carved.

    Didn’t know about the fat trimmings. I don’t feed my dog any on the list, he’s on a strict diet. But, growing up I do remember my parents feeding our dogs table scraps which had prob all those things on the list. I’m sure if they knew that they would never consider feeding them our leftovers.

    I had no idea about onions and garlic. I’ve one that snatches anything that hits the floor, onions included when I’m chopping them.

    You can’t feed them fat trimmings? I have been giving my dog all of our organic, grassfed protein leftovers! I’m sure the gmo corn filled dog food that most feed their dog is better for them lol

    I can’t imagine someone finding giving alcohol to a doggie funny in any shape, form, or fashion. However, I wasn’t aware of the nuts being unhealthy. Thanks for the heads up.

    Alcohol, I have heard of people giving this to their dog as a joke which I though was terrible but didn’t know it could kill a dog.

    I never knew about grapes and raisins! I had two pugs who LOVED raisins!

    A story about fat trimmings to share with everyone – I had an older pug who had to take medication for her heart. She got smart real quick to whatever we hid the pill in. So, when hubby took a small chunk of summer sausage & hid it in there–we thought, BINGO! Unfortunately, our old girl died from acute pancreatitis, simply because we gave her pills to keep her healthy in something so high-fat and deadly.

    I knew about some of these since we feed our dogs raw nut didn’t kmow about the apple seeds. We don’t feed fruit but they do get pumpkin and loved playing with the.pumpkins after halloween that didn’t get carved. Pumpkin actually helps if they are constipated or loose stools so we try to keep a can or two on hand. Eggs are good for them too but our one dog won’t eat the shell but the other will.

    You say in your list not to feed dogs PEACHES but recipe #6 is Healthy Dog Treats – Oatmeal Peach Cookies.

    This recipe should be removed if peaches are toxic to dogs.

      It is the peach pit that can be harmful. If prepared correctly the recipe is perfectly safe.

    My owner thoroughly researched all types of bones, my vet said, the don’t like to see me eating any natural bones at all, they are too hard and can create dental issues, like cracked teeth. Those issues will present themselves later in life and can be painful and costly. They prefer I have rubber chew toys.
    Hope this is helpful, Murphy

    You should also add pork, pork bones and NEVER give them poultry bones because they can splinter!
