Dangerous Foods for Dogs

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

It's so hard to resist that squishy face... you know they're screaming, "MOM FEED ME I'M DYING", or "DAD GIMME A FRENCH FRY PLEASE OH PLEASE!"


"C'mon Mom. The cookies are RIGHT. HERE."

Can a tiny, little bit of human food be that bad for your dog?


Well... it depends.


As Bulldog parents, our babies depend on us to keep them healthy and safe - and that means making sure both Bulldog puppies and adults are only eating things that better their overall health.



Below is a list of the human foods that you should avoid giving your dog. Some of these (like citrus) can be given in extremely small quantities, while others (like xylitol) should be avoided at all costs.


Editors Note: Our babies LOVE frozen chunks of watermelon in the summer! Just cut up a few pieces, throw them in an ice cube tray with a bit of water, and voila! Instant doggie refreshment! But be careful with citrus - the high concentrations of naturally occurring acids can cause stomach upset and/or digestive issues in some dogs.


If you find your dog has ingested any of the below items and you are concerned about their well being, call ASPCA's Animal Poison Control Center immediately.
