Good and bad foods for pets

Those eyes that stare at you while you eat are just too cute to want to ignore, but it is at this time where you need to teach your pets that begging for food is not good.  The first step is to ignor them while you are eating.  This repeated behaviour from your side will help to teach them to not stare at you (with those longing eyes), hoping to get a piece of whatever it is that you have on your plate.

Not only can this cause bad behaviour throughout their life, it can also cause illness or even be fatal.

Below is a list of the worst foods you can give to your furry friend:

 

1. Chocolate

2. Grapes

3. Garlic & onions

4. Macadamia nuts

5. Avocado

6. Alcohol

7. Bread dough

8. Mouldy/off food

10. Ice Cream

11. Raw meat/raw fish

12. Plums
