We all love our pets and want to give them the best. We also like to provide them with treats, because what’s life without a little something fun to eat now and then. I’m not one of those who always say no people food for pets. I’ll admit it. I’ve given my dog pizza crust (those big brown eyes), a piece of leftover chicken, or even a piece of fruit. What’s the harm, right?
In most cases, not much. However, some foods and other substances commonly found in the home have severe consequences when eaten by pets. While dogs are usually the culprit when it comes to purloined food, it’s best to keep these items away from all pets.
