Here’s what your dog can and cannot eat

Since we got a puppy a few months ago, keeping a watchful eye over him and what he tries to eat has been a bit of a challenge. Aside from a few foods that aren’t necessarily the best for pups, he’s eaten Christmas ornaments, magazines, stones and an assortment of animal poop.

It’s been fun, to say the least.

In regards to foods he has consumed that he likely shouldn’t have, I thought it might be useful to offer a list of some foods dogs can, and cannot eat in hopes of shining some light on the matter for anyone else faced with a hyper-curious pooch. This information comes from
