Never Ever Feed Your Dog These Extremely Harmful Food Products

Given your fondness for your adorable pooch who is no less than a family member, you probably feel like sharing all the delicious food with your dog. Who won’t find it hard to resist those puppy eyes asking for a nibble, after all? That said, spoiling your mutts like that may not be the best idea as some of these foods are extremely bad for their health, which can even lead to death in extreme cases.

Check out a few edibles that should be never fed to your beloved dogs, even if they beg adorably – being a good pet owner sometimes mean saying ‘No’ as well!

Preservatives – Poor Nutrition

You might have heard that preservatives are bad for humans, but for dogs’ health, they are even worse. Buying those organic pet foods that claim to be free of these harmful ingredients, you might unknowingly put a health destroyer in your beloved pooch’s body, which leads to poor nutrition and shortens their life span.

Pet owners can often be fooled by the hidden information on packets because of technical names such as Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), Propylene Glycol, or BHA. So, the next time you pick one of those foods from the store, we just told you what to watch for!

Fillers – Allergies

Fillers are the ingredients that basically don’t bring any good to your dog’s health. Why do the companies use these? Well, simply because they are much cheaper than meat! For example, several pet food makers use grains as fillers. It’s not that all grains are bad, in fact, some options like quinoa or brown rice are fine, but only in smaller proportion.

Whereas heavy grains like oatmeal, barley, white rice should be a strict ‘No’ for your mutt and it can be even more problematic if there is wheat, soy or corn mixed in their food. Probably this would be new to you: dog allergies are majorly caused by wheat!

Artificial Coloring – Possibility Of Canine Cancer

Use of artificial coloring is another hazardous practice that can ultimately lead our dearly-loved meek pal to suffer from some or the other health issue. Did you ever give a thought that the coloring is used to make the pet food look more appealing to us and not our dogs?

Shocking it may sound, but that’s the actual tactic behind adding these chemicals which are certainly not beneficial for your best friend (remember dogs and humans are best friends?). As a caring pet owner, you might be aware that canine cancers are increasing like anything. Could the low-grade food be one of the reasons? We’ll let you decide.
