Warning: DEADLY Foods Every Dog Owner Must Know About.

Turkey

There's no denying that dogs love to eat meat, but there's a bit of controversy over whether or not they're allowed to have it. Luckily for them, dogs are most definitely allowed to eat turkey! Just make sure that there isn't any seasoning on it, and always make sure to double-check that there aren't any small bones in it that they could swallow.

Garlic and Onions

If you're like us, then you understand the importance of using seasonings in your cooking. Unfortunately, if you plan on sharing your meals with your dog, you really need to pay attention to what you're using. The allium family of foods, which includes garlic, leeks, onions, and chives, can cause drooling, anemia, elevated heart rate and respiratory rate, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea in dogs. So before you feed them anything from the dinner table, make sure that you haven't used any garlic or onions because you could risk making your dog very sick.

Avocados

When it comes to feeding your dog avocados, there are very important key facts for you to remember. Avocados are a superfood, chocked full of vitamins A, E, B6, and C. They also have plenty of folate, niacin, potassium, and very important fatty acids that are great for your dog's skin and coat. While they are SUPER good for your dog, you have to keep in mind that they're extremely fatty, which could be harmful to your dog in large doses. Also, the main concern when it comes to dogs eating avocados is the choking risk involved with eating the pit. Even if the dog is able to crush the pit up into pieces, it could still have a difficult time being digested, which could cause an obstruction in your dog's intestines. Unless you're going to limit their intake and remove the pit, your best bet is to avoid giving your dog avocados. Period.

Peanut Butter

As you've probably experienced before, dogs absolutely LOVE peanut butter. Luckily, this delicious snack is great for dogs to have, especially when you think about all of the vitamins, fats, and proteins that there are in peanut butter. But just one word of caution: Do NOT give your pup peanut butter that has xylitol in it because that could be quite deadly for your dog.

Popcorn

There's nothing worse than sitting down to watch a movie, only to have your jealous dog stare at you for bites of your popcorn the entire time. If that sounds like your home, listen up: Dogs are definitely allowed to share your popcorn with you, but not if you enjoy your popcorn salted and buttered. As long as it's plain popcorn, though, they can have all of the bites that you're willing to give them.
