Be a Good Dog Owner: Fruits and Veggies That are Bad for Your Dog

Here are some fruits and veggies that are bad for your dog. Don’t ever feed these to them! Some are not as bad as others, but it’s always better to stay on the safe side.

Apple

The seed of an apple contains cyanogenic glycosides, and if given to a dog can cause cyanide poisoning.

Apricot

Like apples, the apricot’s seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.

Avocado

Contains persin, a toxic element that can damage animals’ heart, lungs, and other tissues. Can also cause an upset stomach, vomiting and pancreatitis. The seed pit is toxic if swallowed and if it gets lodged in the intestinal track, it can cause severe blockage and will have to be removed surgically.

Broccoli

Even though broccoli is really good for humans, you may not want to feed your dog too much of this. As long as you don’t give your dog more than 10% of it’s daily diet, broccoli is fine. It contains a toxic ingredient called isothiocynate and can upset your dog’s stomach.

Cherries

Same as Apricot. The seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.

Corn on the Cob

Never give your dog this as it can cause partial or complete intestinal obstruction. Many dogs have fallen ill and even died after eating this.

Grapes and Raisins

Never, I repeat never give your dogs these. Although a little bit is fine, we don’t know how much is too much so just be safe and don’t give it to your dog. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea and later kidney failure. Dogs have died after eating too much of grapes and raisings.

Onions

Don’t give your dogs onions. They cause hemolytic anemia, which causes your dog’s red blood cells to break down, leaving it short of oxygen. With a single ingestion of large quantities or with many meals containing small amounts of onion, onion poisoning can still happen.

Peaches

Same as cherries and apricots. The seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.

Pears

Same as apples. The seed contains cyanogenic glycosides, and if given to a dog can cause cyanide poisoning.

Plums

Same as cherries, apricots and peaches. The seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.

Potatoes

Cooked, mashed potatoes are fine for dogs, but green sprouts and green potato skins have Solanum alkaloids.

Tomatoes

The same thing happens with tomato plants. Contains atropine which can cause dialated pupils, irregular heartbeat and tremors. There is most atropine in the stem and leaves of tomato plants, next in unripe or green tomatoes and then in ripe tomatoes.

  1. what about strawberrys, bananas, or carrots

  2. Not too sure about avocados… there\’s a very popular dog food made from avocados on the market

  3. Avacados are highly toxic to small animals and avians alike. I don’t doubt you’ve seen a dog food linked to avacado, but there are many dog treats that are “chocolate” even though chocolate is also highly toxic to dogs, especially very small breeds. This list is a good one, although no list is ever complete. Don’t doubt the toxicity of avacados though. You’ll regret it if you do.
