Things your dog shouldn’t eat (or drink!)

There are lots of things that when eaten, can be really harmful to both dog and us, and there are other things that we can eat that could cause dogs serious problems. Things that we eat or drink that cause an unwanted effect are referred to as “poisons”. Poisons are not just from the land of spy films and evil villains, but they can be found around the house too.  This guide should outline a few common items that you should keep well away from your dog. This guide wont cover everything, so if you don’t see it on here, don’t automatically assume its safe for your dog to eat.
