Ingredients That are Toxic to Dogs

Here are some ingredients you should stay away from when it comes to your beloved pet.

Grapes or Raisins can cause sudden kidney failure in dogs. It can take as little as one grape or raisin to cause this reaction.

Avocados contain a chemical called persin that is toxic to dogs. Dogs are more able to metabolize this chemical than some other animals. But still, it’s best to stick to ingredients that won’t risk your pet’s health.

Lisa, I’m super excited about these dog treats! Now I need cat, goat, and horse treats too. Oh, not to forget parrot and outside bird treats as well. 🤗
