These Household Items Cause 214,000 Cases of Food Poisoning in Pets Yearly

Posted by Emma Nolan on

It’s easy to think that your dog can eat whatever food you can eat yourself. But this common mistake leads to hundreds of thousands of food-poisoning cases among canines and other household pets annually, some of which are fatal.

As beloved members of the family, your dogs also deserve careful attention, especially when it comes to their diet. You may think it’s generous to hand-feed them some of those meat trimmings, but the simple act can easily turn into a nightmare once your pooch starts vomiting.

It’s better to be safe than sorry. In the following infographic, Pawstruck, a US-based retailer of all-natural dog treats, lays down clear and simple the most common household items that you should avoid feeding your dog.

Ever thought about feeding Fido those raw bones? How about that chocolate cake leftover from last night’s birthday party? Perhaps milk is okay? You may want to rethink every one of those decisions. These common household items seem harmless to you but may have catastrophic health effects on your dog.

It’s important that you make it the whole family’s shared responsibility to ensure that your dogs don’t get accidentally fed harmful food items. But in case you need to deal with the unexpected, it pays to be prepared.

Know the signs of food poisoning so you can diagnose the problem before it gets worse. This infographic shares the common symptoms that can help you tell when your pet is in trouble. Find out more below.

A Message From Our Founder

Hi, I'm Kyle, founder of Pawstruck. When my dog, Tyson, was a puppy, I noticed a disturbing trend when buying him treats from pet stores. The ingredient lists were gibberish. Artificial ingredients were in everything, and the scientific jargon was overwhelming. Butylated hydroxytoluene, ascorbyl palmitate, ethoxyquin…huh???

I scoured the Internet to find reasonably priced, natural treats and chews, but they weren't available. That frustration became my inspiration for creating Pawstruck.

Now Tyson and I provide pets across the USA with healthy, high-quality, and affordable treats, chews, food and more! I'm so grateful for the canines, felines, and humans who support our philosophies and business. If you haven't already, I hope you'll shop with us and join the Pawstruck Pack!

What People Are Saying About Pawstruck...

- Adison in Newport Beach, CA

"You guys are the BEST! Bully Sticks, Cow Ears, & Bones are my Australian Shepherd's absolute favorite, but they're so darn pricey in stores. Yours are way cheaper, longer lasting, and the quality is way better than what I've seen. I'll be a lifelong customer. My pup says thank you!"

"Received your package. Thanks for the variety of products! I'm very impressed with their obvious quality. We have a rescue beagle who spent the 1st year of her life in a shelter and was adopted by an abusive family. We are working on her, she did seem to like the hoof I gave her!"

"I appreciate the care you all have put into making high quality bully sticks. Peter and I feel safe to let Oliver enjoy your bully sticks! Thanks so much! Oliver is still loving all the goodies you sent him. He just finished the circle bully stick ten minutes ago and he is so happy."

"I'm raising four big dogs with strong chew drives. I've found the best prices on bully sticks and other all-natural chews on Pawstruck.com. The braided bully sticks are insane. I swear my dogs' eyes doubled in size when they saw them for the first time. Give 'em a try!"
