As pet parents, nothing is more important than keeping our four-legged family members safe. Sometimes, we don’t even know that what we’re doing is harmful – like feeding them table food, or letting them roam free in the yard without an idea of what’s out there.
When it comes to our two puppers, nothing keeps their tushes wiggling, their jowls drooling, and their behavior on-point quite like SPIKE™ treats from Petcurean. As it is, Petcurean is our go-to food that we trust for all-natural ingredients. We want the best for our furr-babies, so only premium quality meat proteins (none of that “painted on meat” stuff – yes, that’s real in other dog foods), antioxidant and superfood rich content like chia, pomegranate and kale seeds will do.
Harmful plants: Many common household plants can have negative effects on your furry family member. Check your home and make sure you don’t have any of these plants around!
Food to avoid for dogs:
- Chocolate– Most pet lovers know that chocolate is a big no-no for Fido. Chocolate is harmful because of a toxic agent called theobromine, which can make your pup extremely ill and even lead to death.
- Grapes– A lesser known fact, grapes can lead to kidney failure in dogs. If you want to give your pup a sweet and healthy treat, opt for blueberries instead.
- Mushrooms– If you have a dog that spends a lot of time outside, it’s crucial to check your yard for mushrooms. There are many species of mushroom that are toxic to pets, such as the Amanita phalloides or ‘Death Cap’ mushroom, a potent poison at only 3 grams. Since there’s a multitude of other species that can harm your pet, it’s best to keep your lawn clean of any mushrooms just to be safe. If you suspect your pet has ingested a poisonous mushroom, take them to the vet and bring the mushroom so the clinic can identify what type of toxin or poison they are dealing with.
Although Betty White (our American Bully) and Jack Skellington (our Boston Terrier) enjoy our table scraps, we try to avoid giving them human food when we can. For an easy, worry-free way to treat your puppers with the delicious foods you know and love, treat them to SPIKE. ZERO by-products, added growth hormones, artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. Now THAT is a TREAT.
