When we got our dog Chester almost eleven years ago, I honestly hadn’t a clue what to feed him. After many, many years of flipping between food brands we realized that he couldn’t tolerate any foods that had byproducts or meals in them. His stomach would become a mess and his skin would become itchy. It made sense since at this same time, I had started switching my family to a more natural lifestyle as well. After all, he is family right?
Here’s a list of 10 Foods You Should Never Feed Your Dog!
- Coffee or Tea
- Grapes or raisins
- Sugary foods
- Artificial Sweeteners
If you look at the last 3 food items – sugary foods, artificial sweeteners and salt – you’d be amazed at how many of the pet food products on the market are very high in these three things. In addition, have you seen the number of recalls in the last few years? It’s scary to think about the unnecessary things my beloved Chester is consuming on a daily basis!
Chester is celebrating his 11th Birthday next week and our goal is to keep him as healthy, happy and energetic as we possibly can, for as long as we can!
