Our furry friends can eat anything, however just like us, they seem to have a never-ending appetite for all sorts of sweet treats! However, not all human foods are safe for our dogs. Here is a list of desserts you can share with your furkid, and ones you’ll want to keep for yourself.No chocolate or candy
This one is a big cross off the list. Chocolate contains theobromine, a methylxanthine compound that is toxic to dogs. Once consumed, it may lead to vomiting, diarrhea, abnormal heart rhythms, seizures and in severe cases, death. Ensure that your dog stays as far away from chocolate as possible!
Sugary candies aren’t good for us, and the same applies to our dogs. Candies, in general, contain the sweetener Xylitol, which causes increased insulin production and can lead to liver failure in your furry friends. Instead of chocolate and candy, let your pet snack on some carob chips, which is a chocolate substitute. However, with all snacks, do so in moderation, as large amounts will cause an upset stomach.Yogurt and PB Source: Pinterest
