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.
The seed of an apple contains cyanogenic glycosides, and if given to a dog can cause cyanide poisoning.
Like apples, the apricot’s seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Same as cherries and apricots. The seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.
Same as apples. The seed contains cyanogenic glycosides, and if given to a dog can cause cyanide poisoning.
Same as cherries, apricots and peaches. The seed pit contains cyanogenic glycosides which can cause cyanide poisoning.
Cooked, mashed potatoes are fine for dogs, but green sprouts and green potato skins have Solanum alkaloids.
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.
