Default Foods To Avoid In Dog Food Recipes


Just as taking the time to cook your own meals can be healthier than
eating out or eating a meal that comes in a box, making your own dog
food recipes is a way to both add variety to your pet's diet and have
more control about what goes into your dog's body. And although making
your own dog food recipes can result in a happy, healthy canine who
doesn't have a lot of artificial flavors or preservatives, there's
also the potential for missteps if you add the wrong foods. If you're
starting to cook your own dog food recipes, here are some foods to
avoid:
Chocolate
One of the most commonly known things to avoid feeding dogs, you
should never add this food to any dog food recipes. The substance
theobromine, which occurs naturally in chocolate, is toxic to dogs.
While the concentration of theobromine varies in chocolate, with milk
chocolate containing the least and baker's chocolate the most. In any
case, avoid chocolate in dog food recipes.
Onions
Onions, though they make great flavoring for both human and dog food
recipes, can lead to a condition called Heinz body anemia, which
destroys red blood cells and can lead to full-blown anemia in dogs.
You have a few ways to minimize this risk, such as cutting the onions
big enough that they impart some flavor to the food before easy
removal before serving, or just leaving the onions out of your dog
food recipes altogether. It's been suggested that the biggest danger
in this comes from low-quality onions, so if you purchase good-quality
onions, you may also minimize the danger. Two Japanese breeds, the
Akita and the Shiba Inu are particularly susceptible....
