Foods You Should Never Feed Your Dog

Before I started my dogs on a Real Food Diet, I did a lot of research to ensure that I would feed them a nutritionally balanced diet, and use only foods that were good for them. I found that there are many foods that are very bad for dogs and can even lead to death, and yet some of these are used in most homemade Dog Treats or in their daily meals. Keep in mind that foods that are beneficial to humans are not necessarily beneficial to dogs. Always make sure the foods you are giving your dog are safe and healthy for them to eat. When in doubt, do without.

The ASPCA has a toxic and non-toxic plant database that includes many foods.

Below is a list I have compiled of foods that you should never feed your dog. Please remember that this is not an exhaustive list.

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Raisins (all currants)
  • Grapes
  • Any fruit with a pit.
  • Fruit Seeds, Stems, & Leaves
    (Especially apple seeds which contain cyanide. Toxic to dogs)
  • Avocado
  • Parsley
  • Chocolate
  • Bell Peppers are controversial.
  • Spinach is controversial.
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Citrus Fruits
  • Cinnamon 
  • Salt
  • Many Seasonings. Do not add seasonings to your dog's food.
