 You might think that giving your pet all the leftovers that his heart desires will make him happier, but feeding him certain human foods can cause stomach upset, diarrhea, serious health issues — or even death.

An ingredient called "Theo bromine" is lethal to dogs and cats in certain doses. It is the ingredient in chocolate that is dangerous to pets if ingested. For more information regarding this ingredient, go to the library tab and lookup chocolate toxicity.

Many dog owners do not know that some common foods can be toxic to their dog. Please do not let your dog have raisins or grapes, macadamia nuts, moldy cheese, chocolate, onions, garlic, avocados, or xylitol-sweetened gum and other candies or baked items.  For more information, please go to the library tab.

Many chewing gums contain Xylitol which is poisonous to dogs. There is no antidote for xylitol toxicity. Avoid feeding dogs products that contain xylitol. Please keep gum in a place where your dog cannot get to it. If your dog ingests a product containing xylitol, please seek veterinary care immediately. Products that are safe for people to eat are not always safe for our pets. If you think your animal has ingested any type of harmful product please call us at 281-856-7023. You can also call the Animal Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435.
